Radio + MP3 Music Player for Seniors & those w/ Dementia by SMPL
Pre-loaded with 75 American Classics songs from 20’th century -or- add your own MP3 music files!
Playing music to people with dementia from their formative years vastly improves their cognizance and lucidity - the effects are dramatic, and are widely recognized by Dementia and Alzheimer's professionals.
The SMPL One-Touch Radio & Music Player allows seniors, even with significant cognitive decline from Dementia or Alzheimer’s, to listen to music they loved in their youth. This also helps promote independent living, allowing seniors to stay in their homes longer. End result: by engaging minds, our Simple Music Player plus AM/FM Radio makes a significant contribution to seniors’ quality of life.
Product testing has shown our Music Player that is specifically designed for seniors and for those with Dementia or Alzheimer's is simple to use - on the first try. Pressing the extra large button to Start/Stop the music is all they have to do. Pre-loaded with 75 American Classics from the last century, our MP3 format player can also handle up to 1,000 of their favorite songs or audio books that you can upload to the provided 8GB USB Memory Stick. Large buttons are easy to use for those with Arthritis and red is the preferred color for those with visual impairments. Problems…Solved.
