Access to Music for People with Dementia

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionAcademicpeer-review


How can smart technology support people with mild-moderate dementia to benefit from the positive effects of listening to music in daily life? The quality of life of people with dementia decreases rapidly when they experience difficulties in using everyday products and lose initiative. With a focus on the interaction with music, we study how smart technology can enable human-productinteraction while adapting to loss of initiative. As a result, knowledge on interaction design will be developed to help designers create better products for people with dementia.
