App set to transform the lives of dementia patients A 'revolutionary' smartphone app could transform the lives of dementia patients at just the click of a button by telling them how to change their homes.
Iridis gives sufferers feedback within 20 minutes on how to slash their risk of injuries and confusion in the comfort of their own home.
Hailed as 'exciting', it highlights possible dangers, such as wall colour clashing with that of grab rails in the bathroom or the need of better lighting.
Simple suggestions such as changing the colour of the toilet bowl to help patients find the loo easier are also offered - reducing the risk of an accident.
Recommendations to extend their curtain rods to allow more light into rooms and reducing reflective glares can also be made to boost their quality of life. The Daily Mail
