Structure is very important for someone suffering from dementia. Time orientation brings calm and structure. The BBrain Family dementia clock brings structure to the user because the clock clearly provides the day of the week, the date, the time, and the part of the day, both visually and spoken. The clock can be remotely controlled by family members, friends, and caregivers. You can schedule and manage appointments in the agenda or send reminders for things such as medication that needs to be taken. The user can also receive video calls from family or caregivers. In this way, the calendar clock brings structure to the lives of people who suffer from dementia.
With the free BBrain app for iOS and Android you can easily manage functions such as video calling, calendar management, sending messages and photos, and setting alarms and reminders. You can download the app for desktop, tablet, and phone. You can link as many administrators as you like.
The G2 is an interactive calendar clock that can be used by the user himself (in combination with help from family and caregivers via the app). With the G2 it is possible to send separate photos, agenda items and messages to the clock. The BBrain will read a message or notification out loud as soon as the clock receives them. A red bar with the message in it will appear. When the user wants to remove the red bar, they have to click on the notification. The messages etc. will remain on the clock. Messages can only be removed completely by the relatives. With agenda items, relatives can set the time for how long an appointment should be on the screen. The appointment can be displayed for a maximum of 10 hours. The G2 calendar clock has various versions, so it is possible to switch from the interactive version to the passive version. The passive version will also result in the clock having a longer duration of use.
To be able to use the different functions on the clock, such as the sending of messages, photos, and agenda items, Wi-Fi is necessary. If the user doesn’t have Wi-Fi the messages won’t arrive. It is not possible to put the agenda items in the calendar on a location where there is Wi-Fi if the clock will eventually go to a location without Wi-Fi. The clock won’t be able to retrieve the agenda items because there is no Wi-Fi. The clock itself can be used without Wi-Fi, but it will only act as a clock in that case. However, should that be the case, the clock will still read out the time and date.
