Frequently Asked Questions
We are introducing an on-demand video channel constituted of a series of 3-minutes therapeutic and interactive films for dementia patients and caregivers. Working closely with geriatric physicians and therapists since 2011, Memory-Lane.Tv has harnessed, tested and proved its product viability. We have since created longer-length sessions, which are currently available through our online video distribution platform and our Memory Stick. Our product is the result of the combination of several forms of therapies combined with modern interactive technology.
The cost of treating dementia exceeded $600 billion in 2010. With 4 million people diagnosed with dementia in the U.S. and 360,000 new cases each year in Northern America, we have addressed a growing crises that represents 1.24% of GDP in high-income countries… and more than 44 million are effected worldwide.
The market is massively underserved by a distributed, overwhelmed selection of local caregivers or non-profits, which often lack the budget, skills or tools to improve quality of life for patients.
Working closely with hospitals, geriatric physicians, nurses and social workers and have developed a revolutionary unique protocol, effective, and highly scalable solution that addresses key requirements for patients and caregivers. Our innovation is a specially crafted and customisable video and delivery platform that :
– Stimulates episodic memory
– Improve quality of life and moods of patients
– Reduce anxiety levels
– Contribute to the healing process by creating a relaxing environment – Adjust internal clock of the viewer (critical for dementia patients)
The secret to our success are collections of short, three-minute HD immersive films that are specifically designed to incorporate specific colors, visual clues, music, sounds, archives, subject materials, time clues, temporal references, and other elements that maximize impact. Our short films are packaged in inter-connected subscription bundles, which become engraved on our patients long-term memory. Our unique proprietary and trademarked protocol relies in several years of testing the product with patients and caregivers.
Memory-Lane.Tv was founded by a team of award winning filmmakers and medical experts who have more than three decades of experience building companies at the intersection of healthcare and digital media. Our unique experience and industry expertise, combined with our personal networks, create a competitive product and strategic advantage at the crossroad of Integrative Health.
We own the rights to our products and have developed our films with physicians and M.D. approval and our partners are among the most prestigious institutions in the world.
Our advisory board is composed of physicians, third party users, investors and professionals from the media industry.
We are currently considering strategic partners and funding options that will enable us to (a) more rapidly sell our core product to institutions; (b) expand our video library; and (c) execute on our vision for customized videos, localized for our global market. Memory Lane is scheduled to launch Q3 of 2016 but we already accept beta testers, early birds and of course potential sponsors
Multisensory Stimulation for People With Dementia: A Review of the Literature – Abstract
American Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease & Other Dementias® Alba Sanchez, MD1, Jose ́C. Milla ́Calenti, PhD1, Laura Lorenzo-Lopez, PhD1, and Ana Maseda, PhD1
The use of multisensory stimulation in people with dementia is becoming increasingly popular in the last decades. The aim of this review is to analyze the therapeutic effectiveness of multisensory stimulation in people with dementia. We made a search on Medline and Web of Science databases referred to all researches published from the year 1990 to 2012, which used multisensory stimulation techniques in people with dementia. The revision of the 18 articles which fulfilled the inclusion/exclusion criteria seems to prove evidence that multisensory stimulation environments produce immediate positive effects on the behavior and mood of people with dementia. Based on the above, we think it can be a useful nonpharmacological intervention on neuropsychological symptoms though, in any case, it would be necessary to start more reliable protocols from the methodological point of view in order to establish its long-term effectiveness.
“The evidence for non-pharmaceutical approaches to the behavior problems often seen in dementia is better than the evidence for antipsychotics, and far better than for other classes of medication” –
“Multisensory approach is a useful nonpharmaceutical intervention in neuropsychological symptoms of dementia” – “A great part of our personal identities comes from knowing where we are on the timeline of our lives. When you start to lose your memory, you start to lose your sense of yourself. Though, there are ways to stimulate the mind when living with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.”H. C. Kales, L. N. Gitlin, C. G. Lyketsos. Assessment and Management of Behavioral and Psychological Symptoms of Dementia. BMJ, 2015; 350 (mar02 7): h369 DOI:
Multisensory and Other Nonpharmaceutical Approaches to Dementia Care
In “Multisensory stimulation for people with dementia: a review of the literature,” MillánCalenti et al note that multisensory stimulation in people with dementia is becoming increasingly popular. The aim of their review was to analyze the therapeutic effectiveness of multisensory stimulation in patients with dementia. They found the evidence that multisensory stimulation environments produce immediate positive effects on the behavior and mood in those with dementia. They believe it is a useful nonpharmacological intervention on neuropsychological symptoms. However, reliable protocols from the methodological point are needed to determine whether there are sustained effects.
In “Motor and multisensory carebased approach in dementia: long term effects of a pilot study,” Marques et al examine the short, mid, and longterm effects of a motor and multisensory carebased approach on the behavior of institutionalized individuals with dementia and on care practices according to staff perspective. They used both motor and multisensory stimulation strategies during morning care. They found shortterm improvement in communication and engagement in their patients. However, this was followed by a decline over time. They also noted difficulties related to their institutional organization. They conclude that multisensory care may be helpful; however, there is a need to implement longterm strategies and involve institutions at different organizational levels to sustain results.
