Project description:
Memo comes in handy in sensory therapy for people with Alzheimer's disease. The set includes a speaker, a fragrance diffuser, instruments, a mobile application and a shelf. Instruments (grater and three rattles) and a loudspeaker (very intuitive to use, with a limited number of buttons) are used in music therapy. Fragrance diffuser sprayes essential oils, and the smell of a given function, e.g. an appetite stimulant or a sedative, is released at a specific time. The mobile application includes a set of memory exercises, it also allows you to add photos that bring back memories. Thanks to the application, the carer sets waking, sleeping and meal hours, which are synchronized with the operation of the diffuser and loudspeaker, emitting aromas and music adequate to the time of day and planned activities. The shelf allows wireless charging of devices.
