Memory Box

Memory Box is a device designed specifically for people who suffer from Alzheimer’s disease. The idea builds upon existing therapies such as sensory integration therapy, which uses psycho-social intervention to trigger patients’ emotions. The patient takes any sentimental possession, say a treasured photograph of a family event, and places a RFID sticker on it. Once they place the item on the Memory Box, the device starts recording. The patient then starts talking about the memories associated with the particular possession. Once they’re done, they remove the object from the Memory Box. The next time they place the object on the device, the Memory Box will play back the associated memory to refresh the user’s memory.
