Memocorby – Speech Therapy Tools
Speak. Memorise. Communicate. Neuro-scientific studies show that adults as well as children learn especially well when their brain is simultanously stimulated by haptic, visual and auditory stimuli. The better when you make it easy and fun to work with the therapy tool and add repetition as well as positive emotions. That’s what we had in mind when we developed our Memocorby cubes and the therapy activities. You can use them anywhere – also at home!

What is Memocorby?
Memocorby is an innovative, multi-sensory learning tool for speech therapy that enables people to see, hear and grab language. According to neuro-scientific studies this is the best and most sustainable way to learn language. Memocorby consists of 5 – 10 cubes, a tablet and an app for language therapy activities. In the spirit of Maria Montessori, Memocorby encourages patients to re-learn language by giving them a speech therapy tool they can use independently.
Memocorby stands for a learning system for stroke patients with aphasia and people who suffer from dementia that is hands-on, activates the brain and is easy and fun to use — no matter where you live and how old you are. After a stroke you can start Memocorby speech therapy with a speech therapist or pathologist already in hospital. The cubes are easy to grab and hold, and the activities can start at the level of a phoneme or even include musical intonation therapy (MIT).
Today about 80 % of patients stop speech therapy after they leave rehabilitation because it is difficult to find a therapist nearby and they need a family member who helps them to get there. Now, with Memocorby it is easy to keep on training on a daily basis as the therapist can assist the patient remotely. Memocorby gives the therapist and pathologists a complete logging of all training sessions (medical or private). Moreover Memocorby provides an overview of the patient’s learning progress by just one click.
