The Simple Music Player is designed for individuals with Alzheimer’s, dementia or other cognitive impairments. It has been designed to be as easy as possible to operate for the user. Setting up the player is undertaken by friends, family or caregivers, as a onetime process. Trails have been conducted to make sure the operation is highly intuitive and does not require any prior knowledge or memory to start and stop the player. The styling is also reminiscent of old radios and is instantly recognizable as something which plays music. To operate, there are only three controls: Start playing music - just lift the lid; Skip this song - (optional) press the big button and to Stop the music - close the lid. The music will always continue from where it was last stopped. The volume control is designed to avoid being accidentally changed by the user. This could lead to the music being far too loud and disturbing, or too quiet so it may appear to be 'broken' if hard of hearing or confused. To adjust the volume, use a pencil or a straight edge by pressing and holding one of the buttons underneath the player. Only after holding the control for 5 seconds the volume will begin to increase or decrease, so it can be set to the appropriate level.
