Music as Medicine program to treat cognitive decline

Winner of the AARP Innovation@50+ Consumer’s Choice Award and the USC Keck School of Medicine Body Computing Prize, SingFit PRIME now includes an online training option in addition to existing in-person training. This new, affordable interactive online training greatly expands the number of senior care professionals able to be certified in the SingFit PRIME intervention. 
 
SingFit PRIME is a technology-driven therapeutic intervention, which can help create greater physiological, emotional and neurological health for people aged 55 and over, including those with dementia. SingFit combines the growing body of scientific research on the benefits of prescribed singing with a proprietary technology and music platform in order to widely distribute a music-as-medicine treatment. 
 
SingFit is currently facilitated at more than 100 senior living communities, adult day programs and skilled nursing facilities on a regular basis where it demonstrably elevates the mood of people aged 55 and over by an average of 42%, while decreasing agitation and wandering for people with dementia. Significantly, customers report that utilizing the program results in a decreased need for anti-anxiety drugs for people with dementia.
 
“This is the first time in history that music as medicine has truly been distributed in a way that is as scalable, affordable, and in some cases, even more effective than traditional pharmaceuticals,” says Musical Health Technologies Co-Founder & Chief Clinical Officer and certified music therapist, Andy Tubman.
