Bella and Arthur have been designed in the UK. Initially Arthur was created to help with recognition and cognition for people with Alzheimer and Dementia. Both bears contain an MP3 player which can be activated by pressing their left paw. Familiar music or recordings from loved ones are transferred onto the bears via a USB link for the new owner to listen to.
The difference between Arthur and Bella is that Arthur plays his music in a random order and Bella plays hers sequentially. Arthur is a simple music player for Dementia and Bella has been modified specially for Sara to use to play guided meditations and meditation music for children and can be loaded with music and/or recordings to help children relax and fall asleep.
