A perfect example of how Assistive Technology can aid Independent Living

MemRabel 2 by Medpage
MemRabel will help you remember

Almost 5 five ago I asked my Son (Technical Director) to design a product that would help my ageing parents (his Grandparents) remember daily tasks, such as taking medications, when their favourite TV programs were on the TV and the various weekly appointments they had.

He did a splendid job and came up with the MemRabel 2. MemRabel 2 soon proved its worth and more so now that Dad is in a care home.

The MemRabel can be used in a number of ways to create personalised reminders. There are, for example, over 100 pre-installed media files with typical daily reminder videos, pictures and voice memos. Even better, you can create your own videos, graphics and voice reminders and use them for timed reminder playback using MemRabel’s powerful media player.

Here is an example how MemRabel 2 has helped to organise a young Autistic man’s day.
