I am currently listening to Oliver Sacks ‘Awakenings’ audiobook. He says in it that when Parkinson’s patients have difficultly moving, often being give an external verbal command to move or an external cue to move such as lines on the floor etc they can often move fairly easily.
So my idea is to use a text to speech app that creates an mp3 with commands such as ‘that’s it, keep going, keep cleaning the kitchen, well done, keep moving, well done for cleaning’. The audio would be on a loop with a 10 or 15 second pause at the end, where upon it would automatically play again and keep looping like that. Play it on a smartphone as you do the cleaning tasks.
What do you think?
