Anti-Alzheimer's tape recorder / Medical device

Anti-Alzheimer's tape recorder

One in 10 people (10%) age 65 and older has Alzheimer’s dementia. Their typical life expectancy following diagnosis is three to nine years. Maintaining strong social connections and keeping mentally active as we age might lower the risk of Alzheimer's. We combine the tape recorder with photos to come up with Anti-Alzheimer's tape recorder. Anti-Alzheimer's tape recorder can record and play recording when seniors insert photos (not the tape). With Anti-Alzheimer's tape recorder, seniors can share happy memories frequently to maintain strong social connections and keep mentally active which might lower the risk of Alzheimer's.
