The key is…. SIMPLICITY!
Studies show that music is one of the best trigger for happy memories. The Simple Music Player has been designed to be as easy to operate as possible for the end user—that is, people with dementia. Setting up the player is undertaken by friends, family or carers, as a one-time process. Extensive trialling has verified that the operation is highly intuitive and does not require any prior knowledge or memory to start and stop the player. The styling is also reminiscent of old radios and is instantly recognizable as something which plays music.
There are only three controls on the player: Lift the lid to start the music—Close the lid to stop the music—Press the big button to skip a song (optional). The music will always continue from where it was last stopped. Up to 4 Gb of music can easily be downloaded to the player. Choose music loved by the user in the past and see their eyes light up when the music starts!
Ideal for people with dementia, visual impairments or motor disabilities. Made of durable plastic. Available in three attractive colours.
Dimensions: 26,5 x 15,5 x 11 cm.
