Tactile Dialogues is a large quilted pillow with integrated vibration elements that reacts to touch, rubbing or stroking as well as hand movements above its surface. A soft vibration can be felt from multiple locations on the object. The vibrations help to trigger a dialogue between a caregiver and a person with severe dementia.
