Graduate student uses music and RFID technology to evoke and helo recover memories of elderly people.
People dealing with dementia often have problems with their memory and cognitive thinking. It's not only frustrating for the patient failing to recall a special moment in their lives, but can also be disheartening for the family. To tackle this issue, Chloe Meineck, a University of Brighton graduate, has created the Music Memory Box at Trent London. The bespoke music box is placed with unique items that are embedded with RFID technology. When the item is placed in the center of the box, a certain piece of music is played.
