Mem-x is a cognitive aid device that is worn around the neck and is designed for use by individuals with cognitive dysfunction brought on by dementia, the early stages of Alzheimer's disease, or stroke. It tells the user in a pre-recorded voice all they have to do at that time, from special events to taking medication.
- Can store up to 90 messages, each up to 10 seconds in length for up to three months without reprogramming.
- Messages can be scheduled to play on a regular daily, weekly, monthly or annual basis or they may be occasional "one off" messages.
- At the predetermined time, the device sounds a caregiver-selectable alarm (there are five sound options).
- When the alarm sounds, the user, who wears the device on a lanyard, presses the large blue button and the message is played in the caregiver's voice.
- Programmed by opening the hinged door on the rear side, and all of the programming options are offered by scrolling through the menu.
