Award-winning Mindvoice assistance device offers dementia hope

by | Oct 13, 2022

An assistance device for people with early to mid-stages of dementia or memory loss made it into the top 10 in the annual Enterprise Ireland Student Entrepreneur Awards.

Controlled by an app, Mindvoice uses facial recognition software via a database on the user’s phone and camera-mounted glasses that scan for pre-uploaded faces to give a personalised description through an earpiece.

AI also learns the user’s common routines should they need to be guided home.

Mindvoice is the brainchild of Munster Technological University students Sinéad Cadogan, Callum Ambrose, Oliver McKenna, Cian Hayes, Jessica O’ Brien, Atharva Chitnavis, Seán Horan, Damilola Afolabi, Olan Fehily and Kieran Twomey.
