The dementia jacket my-DBuddy an innovative and useful tool which resulted from a challenge: 'Can you design a jacket for people with dementia?' asked Helga Rohra, a world famous dementia activist promoting a better life for people living with this condition. Ms. Rohra's question inspired Wilma Verhoeks, owner of Wi-Care BV, a Dutch company specialized in designing clothes for people with a disability. This jacket is now ready and was presented at the European Alzheimer Conference in Berlin, on October 2nd.
Just like other designs by Wi-Care, my-DBuddy is a concept that combines practical solutions with clothes people like to wear:
But the innovation does not stop here. Much like a smartphone, my-DBuddy is an open platform and Wi-Care welcomes novel ideas for extra applications which can be developed and marketed by others under my-DBuddy's umbrella. my-DBuddy must evolve into a cluster of solutions for people with memory problems world-wide.
Of every jacket sold, €50 will be contributed to local Alzheimer's organizations in the countries where my-DBuddy is sold, thereby helping both the population in need as well as financially aiding associations dedicated to providing care and support for all those living with Alzheimer's disease.
Wi-Care will be at REHACARE in Dusseldorf, Germany, 4-7 October 2017 (Hall 6, booth 6B24)
