Music for Dementia

Playing music to people with dementia from their formative years vastly improves their cognizance and lucidity - the effects are dramatic, and are widely recognised by dementia and alzheimer professionals.

E2L developed the ’Simple Music Player’ with supporting research from the Bath Institute of Medical Engineering (Designability) and the 'INDEPENDENT' project. The findings confirmed both the benefits of providing people who have dementia with music they remember, and the need for easy operation that such people require. The restorative effect of music vastly improves the quality of life at home, mental well-being, and promotes independent living rather than relying on institutional resources.

The design is focussed on simplicity for the user, the person with dementia, and for ease of uploading selected tunes by friends, family or carers.
