Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia in old people. We used the Smart Skirting Board® (SSB®) that integrates, among other things, a Snoezelen system, a laser system, music, video and aromas for multisensory and cognitive stimulation. The SSB® allows a non-pharmacological intervention, and the brain stimulation is achieved, improving the elderly person’s attention span, memory, mood, verbal skills and concentration and helping them to relax and offering an atmosphere of security and mental and physical relaxation. Based on a study that was conducted, the smart skirting board as a therapeutic tool, contributed significantly to the improvement of the quality of life of the elderly with psychomotor deficits and particularly those showing signs of Alzheimer's.
