Nurse creates device to help patients with memory loss.

About the solution

Zach Gordon, a nurse from Berrien Springs, has developed a device for his Alzheimer's and Dementia patients. Memesto is a small portable object that reproduces music that is somehow important in the patient's life, prior to the notorious advance of the disease.
In an attempt to also help recognize family and friends, Memesto is also programmed to play small personalized messages between songs.
After being tested in several homes, this device proved to be extremely effective in calming patients, reducing their anxiety and, consequently, the amount of medication they took regularly.
Gordon is currently a co-founder of Edgewater Safety Systems and Edgewater Development, a local company, will mass-produce “Memesto” prototypes to bring to market.
