Music serves as a bridge to the emotions stored in memories!
Perhaps the greatest gift of music in its capability to build a bridge to memories through well-known melodies. In memory-impaired people the favourite music has been found to curb the acceleration caused by the confusion better than the traditional relaxation music providing the feeling of safety and trust.
The healing sound
Low frequencies between 20-100 Hz correspond to brainwave activities and have a positive impact in cerebral circulatory disturbances, as well as in relieving the symptoms in Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases.
HILKKA, aged 74, use Taikofon® for the rehabilitation from cerebrovascular diseases. Motor agility requires being aware of one's body. Awareness of one's body can become weakened for many reasons, such as problems with blood circulation in the brain. For hemiplegics and those suffering from other types of loss of sensation, Taikofon® can provide rehabilitative therapy. The sound waves from music make the Taikofon® vibrate and as she feels the vibration of these sound waves on her body, Hilkka is better able to become aware of her body. Hilkka also loves to read, but her eyes often become tired. So with the help of the Taikofon®, Hilkka plunges into the enchanting world of audiobooks or classical music.
Taikofon® creates a soundscape or a `soundbubble´ around the listener creating a feeling of closeness while allowing the use of low volumes for the personal experience.
Taikofon® is beneficial for people with hearing loss through the multisensory experience. The loss of hearing sound is completed with the whole body listening and skin feeling. On the other hand, Taikofon® brings the sound, e.g. from TV, close to the listener without a need to rise volumes. By that Taikofon, e.g. in senior care, does not disturb others in the room.
Taikofon with wide range of audio content helps people to relax and reflect by listening own favorite music, church service, TV, radio or audiobooks.
