Rugged, easily customised and operated music player for the disabled

by AO Classe | 7 months ago | in The bigger picture

An MP3 type player that can be easily used and dropped without damage. A relative had brain damage following a stroke and accident and their one remaining pleasure was listening to their favourite classical music but they couldn't operate any devices. I tried various specialist and non-specialist solutions but I couldn't find one that (a) could have a custom playlist added (b) could survive frequent dropping (c) could be easily operated and charged by the staff in the care home, so had to resort to a radio permanently tuned to Radio 3/Classic FM and even that had problems. Solution should probably turn itself off automatically after a set time to avoid excessive energy use/frequent recharging.
