DiscoverDementia - example of a student project

Placed by Joyce de Laat for Innovate Dementia at 2014-07-16

An Industrial Design student has developed a new way of interacting with people with dementia: A musical cushion for connecting patients with mid-late dementia and their relatives. The cushion enables a setting where relative and patient will discover music and sounds of the past. The aim is to use the strength of music and sound for creating elevating reactions amongst the patient and therefore creating a meaningful interaction between patient and relative.
