The winners of the World JAIN Challenge 2022 are Genus Care in the category ‘Product’ and DeepVibes in the category ‘Prototype’! We like to congratulate the winning teams sincerely with winning this year’s World JAIN Challenge.
“The recognition from the JAIN jury is a huge award for all developers, users and partners of Genus Care,” said Jill Mulder, CEO of Genus Care. “Our goal has always been to create that people can easily be connected, if they are apart, and have peace of mind even when you’re out of the house. We want to connect as many people as possible via Genus. Winning this challenge has given us the opportunity to show the world that Genus can make a difference.”
Marie-Christine Vierhout – van Akkeren, director of Genus Care Netherlands continues: “As a distributor in the Netherlands, we are closely involved in the development of Genus Care. It is therefore a great honor to receive this award.” She continues: “We have already seen so many people embrace Genus and recognize the difference Genus can make for people with dementia and their families. We hope that this award will allow us to reach and help even more people.”
Genus Care is available in the Netherlands through distributor Tico Care BV. Visit the website of Genus Care for more information (www.genuscare.nl).
Frederico Allegro, and his team from DeepVibes, is also very happy to win the challenge. “One of the biggest and most overlooked problems of dementia is the impact this disease has on mental well-being not only to the individuals affected by it, but also those indirectly. People living with dementia experience a dramatic sense of disempowerment, leading to feelings of isolation and loneliness that may significantly accelerate their decline in cognitive functions. DeepVibes unlocks the full potential of reminiscence therapy to address those problems, by combining an interactive audio-driven solution with the power of artificial intelligence.” Please have a look at their website as well: https://deepvibes.ai
In the end, it is important to become aware of useful innovations and with accurate regards to our new minister of Long-term Care and Sports, Conny Helder: “All the product developers who have participated in the WJC are in the major league for producing products for people with dementia”, JAIN will try to help those companies to forward their products worldwide and aims to collaborate with the teams more often and successfully.
At last, JAIN likes to thank everybody that has been involved in realizing the event. Together with everybody involved, we can say that we are making real steps toward a better quality of life for people with dementia and their carers.
To be continued very soon,
