At the Annual Meeting of the Snoezel Network on 29. April 2022 in Middelfart, DK, with the theme "Music and vibration as medicine", Niels Eje presented background and latest research with MusiCure music and film, and demonstrated the MusiCure Pillow, which has shown very positive results in the treatment of delirium patients.
In their May issue, the Canadian journal "Dementia Connections" has published a new article about the composer Niels Eje, who has created and developed the original MusiCure compositions, based on 20 years of independent research from several countries. The music is created to de-stress, motivate and inspire people who are admitted to hospitals and care centers at home and abroad.
Here is a link to the journal, where the article will later be available online, on page 29:
New results with the MusiCure Pillow for delirium patients.
North Zealand Hospital, Hillerød, Denmark, publish their very positive results with the MusiCure Pillow's effect on delirium patients. Positive results that correspond to the previously announced results from Hvidovre Hospital.
Reference: 'Report from North Zealand Hospital 2020 'Music as a complimenting treatment method for inpatients with delirium' PDF report written by Camilla Engelstoft Hess Clinical nursing specialist, cand.cur.
The report concludes: The purpose of the improvement project was to test the effect of the MusiCure pillows as a complementary treatment method for patients who developed delirium during hospitalization. The intervention period showed that the patients who received music went out of delirium faster and needed less sedative medication. It must therefore be argued that the music pillows can be used as a first priority before any sedative medication is used to treat delirium. In addition, the use of the music pillows resulted in the less need for the use of permanent guards when patients were listening to the music. The department's financial expenses, associated with the use of permanent guards, were therefore significantly reduced during the intervention period.

"Pillows with built-in music are a hit at the hospital"
Based on the good results from both Hvidovre and North Zealand Hospitals, the MusiCure Pillows are now also tested on delirium patients at several other hospitals, including Herlev and Rigshospitalet.
