MusiCure Pillow

International research with MusiCure Since 1999 MusiCure music programs has been used in numerous research projects, and from 2002 more than 30 scientific articles and papers has been published, including 20 articles published in renowned international medical journals. This research is the foundation of the creation of the MusiCure productions and independent researchers from several countries carry out new scientific studies on an ongoing basis. Research with MusiCure is now taking place in Denmark, Holland and USA, with further articles pending publication. A list of published research articles, posters and bachelor projects and other articles can be found in this overview:

MusiCure in USA: Scandic Health LLC
A new service was in June 2015 introduced to hospitals in the United States: “Scandic Health”. A company that offers solutions with MusiCure music and videos directly to the hospital wards, subscribing to receive specially compiled MusiCure programs, as an integrated part of the institution’s internal IT network. Founder and CEO is registered nurse and entrepreneur Anne Taylor, who through many years of positive experience with the use of MusiCure has developed the concept ‘Scandic Health’. As a partner for MusiCure in Denmark, her company can now offer a unique service, with evidence based music and specially produced films to benefit patients in US hospitals.

Test of MusiCure streaming at OUH Svendborg
A comprehensive test of all the MusiCure contents, with both streaming music, nature films, night/sleep program and MusiCure Pillow, took place at Intensive care Department V at OUH Svendborg Hospital from October 2016 to February 2017. The test showed positive results for both patients, staff and relatives, and the MusiCure streaming service is now running there permanently. The test showed that over 70% of patients and 83% of relatives find more peace by listening to music and watching nature films while staying in hospital waiting facilities. Similar good results are seen in the intensive care department and in the hospital's surgery section.

A musical pillow benefits elderly citizens
A special pillow, with built-in sound and evidence-based music, has significantly improved the perceived state of citizens with dementia. Music has an incredible ability to influence people’s mood, awaken memories, induce emotions, reduce anxiety, create calmness, alleviate sleep problems, and in some cases even pain. This makes music, and musical intervention, particularly suitable to caring for people with dementia. At Tinghøj, a dementia nursing home in Favrskov Municipality, in Central Denmark Region, residents have been able to use a specially developed pillow with built-in high-quality sound and specially composed music by Niels Eje. It helps them relax in troubled or agitated situations and remain relaxed after therapy sessions. Based on the positive individual experiences with the MusiCure pillow, the nursing home conducted a user survey in 2018 to examine the benefits of the pillow more closely. The overall positive results suggest that a large proportion of dementia patients will be able to benefit from the music interventions. The survey also concluded that the staff's knowledge of the individual citizen is instrumental to achieving good results. "All the employees and management of the nursing home supported the user survey. The employees participated actively in adapting workflows and approaching the residents about using the pillow, which was a significant factor for the results achieved.” – Lærke Kaae Pedersen, Project Worker at the Department for Assisted-living Technology in Favrskov Municipality. The pillow can be used as a stimulating tool to create peace for individual citizens – improving the daily lives of elderly citizens, their relatives, and healthcare professionals. The technology, however, can neither be a standalone solution nor replace other solutions.
