Re:mind, by Marketplace, is a memory prompter designed for people in the early stages of dementia or for those who need a hand in their ’24/7′ multi-tasking lives. It doubles up as a mobile phone and can be used for text messaging. It can be customised to appeal to both able-bodied and disabled users, to whom it can give a degree of independence. The hand-held device sits on a programmable unit when not in use. When programmed, the user is alerted through visual cues and beeps.
