Interactive cushion for communication between sufferers of dementia and their carer(s)
Interaction between (severely afflicted) sufferers of dementia and their carer(s) is often difficult, but at the same time hugely important. This cushion, with its built-in vibratory pads, stimulates physical communication, reacts to the touch and movements of the hand and thus initiates a dialogue between the patient and the carer.
