inmu is designed to help people suffering from dementia and their caregivers attain a calmer, safer and less disrupted daily life through the use of music and musical impulses.
The jury says
A high-tech design solution for a specialised area, disguised as an attractive cushion in quality materials. The music cushion Inmu is intended for a group of users whose needs often go unmet because they are unable to speak for themselves. The cushion reaches out to the user through music in a form that goes beyond hi-fi and high-tech. The warm, soft expression and the stimulating tactile surface give it a strong emotional appeal that counteracts stress.
