Hi, my name is Erin Giles and I am a student studying at the University of Loughborough. I have been set a task which involves re-designing an everyday object in order to aide dementia patients/carers.
I decided on an alarm clock as I think this is a neccessary product and it has much room for improvement. I also thought it could be doubled up as a memo system. At the moment, the clock has been split into a main wall clock which displays a 24-hour digital clock and space for memos which will flash up to remind the patient when to do neccessary tasks throughout the day. These would be uploaded by a carer through a computer. The second part of the clock is a smaller, portable version which can be placed anywhere around the house, this will also show reminders and the time.
I would be incredibly grateful if anyone has any feedback on the prospective product - if I should add or change any components.
Any feedback or ideas would be much help
