Am: a sensorial experience for Alzheimer's patients
Working as a visual designer in the team, I joined the one-week challenge for the SCAD StartUp on 7 February 2019, a yearly event hosted by FLUX - the UX club in collaboration with SCAD+. We come up with a product or service concept based on the theme "home".
Create a better home experience.
The concept can change based on whom you talk to. For some, it’s where they grew up, and for others, it’s the friends they met after moving away. No matter who you are, we all have a home, but what does “home” mean to you? And what does it look like? Show us how your solution can create a home
Design thinking and interviews
Began by searching for problems for students and teenagers to find the pain points in their life. During the interviews with 10 people, we realized that people were the most important elements for them to think of at home. Turn out that our group wanted to design for a specific target group that related to our family.

Stage 4 to 6
Patients with Alzheimer’s are going through anxiety, frustration, shame, and aggressive behaviors. Actions were taken in the name of patient’s safety actually can act negatively on them.
Limited space and care
Patients have to spend most of their time in an area such as an elderly home. They are living in an environment with trainers and staff. Their freedom is limited in a particular space until the rest of life.
AM is a simulator that allows Alzheimer’s patients a sensorial, explorative experience and uses a conversation AI to allow the patients to feel in touch with their family again. It also employs motion detection for quicker nurse response times if a patient sustains an injury.
Family members and nurses can pick the location and graphics the patient likes by using the apps.
