Simple Music Player for dementia and alzheimers specification

Specification - Overview

’Simple Music Player’ is an MP3 player which comes in three versions: Red, Green and Burr-Walnut. They are functionally identical so they all operate in the same way. The intention is for the player to be installed and left powered on, allowing the user to operate it at will without any other requirement than to lift or lower the lid to start or stop the music.
The only other control available to the regular user is a large button which skips onto the next tune when pressed.
Their construction is highly durable consisting of a strong wooden enclosure with a high strength plastic covering. The loudspeaker grille is cloth finished but reinforced with a steel mesh to avoid any damage to the speaker. Rubber feet ensure that the player does not slip. It can be wiped down with a damp cloth if required.
’Simple Music Player’ can be used anywhere in the world and is configured to suit your national power supply at point of order.

The player has been designed with the minimum of controls and has been extensively tested as well as trialled by the Bath Institute of Medical Engineering (now ’Designability’).
On the back panel there are additional facilities for particular personal requirements. If headphones are required, then the green socket accepts a stereo jack-plug. (Note: headphones can be extremely loud and cause hearing damage)
For people with dexterity problems rather than dementia related conditions the ’ON/OFF’ control and ’NEXT TUNE’ buttons can be over-ridden by means of remote switches plugged into the two available sockets (note: the lid has to be closed for these controls to work).
