Transcendental Tunes RFID technology
As this blog is about sharing exciting things or news with you guys.There is a good news for the alzheimer's desease; The Memories of Alzheimer's Patients can be accessed using Music (Transcendental Tunes).Transcendental Tunes combines RFID technology (in the form of a golden, translucent gem) and a retro-looking wooden audio device to play digital music that releases the memories held captive by the mind in Alzheimer's patient.

The concept is built under the premise that those with Alzheimer's don't lose their memories, they just can't access them in other words they are just unable to retrieve stored information.It takes advantage of the Medial Prefrontal Cortex—one of the last places affected by the illness—which is in charge of familiar memories, music, and emotion. The patient's care partner chooses a song (stored in a metallic orb that acts as an RFID antenna) to connect himself with the Alzheimer's patient, and when the song is played, the pathway to their memories of the care partner should open up.

A Note About Alzheimer's Desease

Alzheimer's disease (AD), also called Alzheimer disease, Senile Dementia of the Alzheimer Type (SDAT) or simply Alzheimer's, is the most common form of dementia. This disease was first described by German psychiatrist and neuropathologist Alois Alzheimer in 1906 and was named after him. Generally, it is diagnosed in people over 65 years of age, although the less-prevalent early-onset Alzheimer's can occur much earlier. In 2006, there were 26.6 million sufferers worldwide. Alzheimer's is predicted to affect 1 in 85 people globally by 2050.

We hope that this solution will work for the patients.Hope you liked this post.
