This Helmet Recreates The Experience Of Dementia
A student project has taken on replicating the difficulties of living with the degenerative disease
Dementia starts off slowly. showing itself as small signs such as short-term memory loss. Simple things like misplacing a wallet progressively turn into forgetting a close family member’s identity. Besides memory, communication is difficult and judgement gets highly skewed. It is hard to pay attention and accomplish tasks because everything just gets so confusing. The scary thing is, there is no real cure for this disease. Recognizing the difficulties that come with dementia, student Di Peng of Central Saints Martin created a dementia stimulator helmet that allows wearers to experience some of the symptoms of dementia.
