ReMind Memory Suite: Memory Enabling Technology (AKA ReMindMe) for iOS / Android, apps designed to help people to live well with dementia and support carers.

The prototype is ready for trial. Citrus plan versions of the app targeting Learning Disability populations, people with Acquired Brain Injury and for people with other memory problems. Please contact Citrus Suite for further information. Email us… ReMind@CitrusSuite.com

Website coming soon: www.ReMindMemorySuite.com

Innovative Assisted Living Technology

The app includes alerts, reminders and image slideshows with plans to integrate social features and more during phase 2 of development. The project team (Citrus Suite app developers, Innovate Dementia, Liverpool John Moore University, Mersey Care, clinicians, service users, carers, researchers, etc.) identified the need to develop memory enabling technology which positively integrates into the lives of those living with dementia, is empowering and is specifically designed for a person with dementia (1st person), and has great benefits to carers.

The foundation is co-creation, leading technical ability and design skills aligned to create a product that will exist in response to need and will be widely accessible on completion – leading to use in many clinical & social areas. Read about the co-creation sessions here.

 

The App

ReMind Core App: iOS / Android tablet & phone apps for use by the person living with dementia and carers. Working as a standalone product or will link into the Care app (below). Smartphone version will be available if the end user prefers a small screen device (useful if they would like interventions when away from the home).

Tuesday 20th Jan 2015

We are proud to announce Citrus Suite has been selected as one of the 10 Future Leaders; a list that Creative England believe showcases some of the best creative talent in England’s regions.

Creative England has produced a report on the Creative Industries, Creative England 50 (the CE50). The report comprises the best up-and-coming companies and is a celebration of the achievements and recognition of the contribution the Creative Industries make to our economy.

As part of the report Creative England asked a panel of judges to choose their 10 Future Leaders, who have demonstrated innovation, strong growth promise and the potential to disrupt their sector with true innovation. The Judges were Nicola Mendelsohn (Facebook), Saul Klein, Rory Cellan-Jones (BBC), Rebecca Burn-Callander (Telegraph) and Stuart Rock from the Business is Great government campaign.

We’re delighted to hear that our work has been recognised and are attending Creative England Live, a highly interactive event, which will kick off with introductory speeches from Caroline Norbury, CEO of Creative England, Harvey Goldstein and Sajid Javid.

Client Apps
We’ve worked on more than 20 apps this year. We loved working on the major Wreck This App update and Coloring For Grown Ups for Penguin Books in the US. We need to update our client list because it’s excellent with apps produced for Penguin Books, Tata Steel, Medicash, BBC, Bauer Media Group, HarperCollins, Littlewoods and loads of others.

Awards
This year saw us winning Best Non-Fiction Award for ‘Pocket Scavenger’ at the Digital Book awards in New York.

Citrus Apps
As a company Citrus Suite has become known for the creative apps we make for our clients. We love what we do and our clients appreciate the tenderness with which we handle their babies, sticking to core principles and adding a little bit of Citrus magic and know how.

As a company we have always had a road map of where we want to be and how to get there. To make things clear, we are never going to stop doing our client work… we value and respect our long-standing partners but we also understand that as a company we need to grow and nurture our own babies.

We’re made great progress this year. Nurturing our own ideas, producing apps for us that we feel answer societal needs and possible change people’s lives for the better.

ReMind Memory Suite  – Memory Enabling Technology
We were determined to get an idea off the ground, we pitched it to Innovate Dementia UK and a great journey began. ReMind is memory enabling technology co-designed with service users who are living well with dementia and their family & carers. The app prototype is ready thanks to great support from our friends at Innovate Dementia

Interest in this app and funding from OpenLabs saw us journey to Stockholm, winning 1 of 5 places to go to the Digital Health Conference 2014 in Sweden and demonstrate the app.

We entered and won OpenLabs Digital Maze competition and then won a trip to China to take part in the Health Conference out there and talk about our dementia app which was supported by the Academic Health Science Network in Yorkshire & Humber (AHSN_YandH) and Bradford University. We met a lot of great people who are really excited about ReMind and fantastic contacts who will be key when we look to do business in China in 2015.

We’ve got big things planned for ReMind Memory Suite  in 2015.

Fee Fi Fo Fit
From 138 ideas, entered from across Europe, we won Health X award from Public Health England with an app that engages and gets young families active.
Fee Fi Fo Fit will now be part of the Change for Life campaign in summer 2015, it’s coming together really well, could this be our 4th number one hit app?

Mobile Health Platform
Helping us along this path were Creative England awarding us funding for some specific mobile health development work which we will be talking more about in 2015.

We Think – Visualisation Tool
Closer to home we have produced a prototype of ‘We Think’ with our Baltic Creative neighbours So Mo.

So there you have it; a year of change for us! Along with clients work we have produced four of our own products which will be going to market in 2015, supported by our partners and friends.
