It's really hard to design products by focus groups. A lot of times, people don't know what they want until you show it to them.

Movie buffs may recollect The Memento where the protagonist suffers from anterograde amnesia and tattoos himself with notes or keeps taking pictures of the things to do, in a constant bid to survive each day. Real life is not as dramatic and memory loss patients, especially Alzheimer’s, need something more passive and practical. The Mnemonic is the kinda device that will help an Alzheimer patient to be more independent by being the constant companion that reminds them about the little things in life.
The wrist wrap features a built-in accelerometer which ensures the display is always on the top. You can set reminders and instructions on this for the patient to follow from time to time.
