Dementia: 'Heartbeat' device 'makes my mum happy'
HUG may look like a soft toy on the outside - but it has been specially designed to help people with advanced dementia.
Designers at Cardiff Metropolitan University hope it can help to ease anxiety and depression.
The device has a beating 'heart' and a speaker that can play sounds and favourite songs.
It has been successfully trialled at a home in the city and they hope to now produce the HUG commercially.
