My name’s Lewis and these are jelly drops.
我叫路易斯,这些是软糖。
They’re designed to overcome dehydration amongst people with dementia in care homes.
它是用来为护理中心的老年痴呆症患者治疗脱水的。
It doesn’t taste too bad either.
味道尝起来还不错。
After Grandma was taken to hospital with dehydration it became apparent to methat little things like not drinking enough can really have a massive effect on people with dementia.
奶奶因为脱水住院后,我很显然知道了,很小的事情比如没有喝够足量的水真的会对老年痴呆者产生很大的影响。
When I first gave them to her she ate seven in the first ten minutesand that’s equivalent to drinking about a glass of water.
我第一次把软糖给奶奶时,她在头十分钟里吃了七颗,这大概相当于喝了一杯水。
So yeah, obviously when Grandma started putting them away it was great.
所以很显然当奶奶开始把这些软糖收起来,是件好事。
This is an orange-flavoured jelly drop.
这是桔子口味的软糖。
It’s solid and it’s quite firm so it’s easy to pick up.
它是固体的,所以很容易拾取。
Dehydration in dementia is quite a significant problem.
老年痴呆症中的脱水现象是相当严重的一个问题。
People, especially in care homes,
特别是护理中心老年痴呆的人
but even living within their own homes, can frequently find themselves to suffer the effects of dehydration.
经常出现脱水反应,即使是住在自己家里的老年痴呆者也经常出现这种状况。
For example the urine infections, the increased confusion, the increased headaches.
比如会出现尿道感染,更糊涂和更头痛。
Any individual product would obviously need some research
任何单独的药物产品很显然需要做一些研究,
to look into whether that is the most effective way of working.
检查是否可以对对付脱水反应最有效。
But anything that helps to encourage somebody to drink, somebody to get fluid inside them has to be a good thing.
但是任何鼓励患者喝水的事情,鼓励他们在体内存储液体的事情,都是好事。
But equally something like eating grapes or oranges,or something that has a high fluid content that they might be more likely to pick up.
其他有相同效果的食物,比如葡萄或者桔子,或者是含有高液体含量的食物,他们可能更容易拾取的,都可以尝试。
So I have a number of care homes interested trialing Jelly Drops further.
现在有很多护理中心告诉我对进一步测试软糖的作用有兴趣。
After I do this and get more information, more insights, I’m looking to put them into mass production.
在我做完这些事情,获取更多信息,有更多想法后,我会把软糖投入大规模生产。
Whilst it’s more expensive than drinking a glass of tap water it’s a lot more difficult to care for peopleonce they’re dehydrated so I think there’s definitely an economic argument to be had.
吃软糖比喝一杯自来水要贵,但是一旦有人脱水,照顾他们要困难得多,所以我觉得这注定是有关是否经济的辩论。
The response I’ve got from around the world basically who know people with dementia and have seen this idea.
全世界很多人主要是认识患有老年痴呆的人,他们看了我的创意。
The number of people that said, you know, it’s impossible, to get, you know, my relative such-and-such to drink anything but they absolutelylove candy and you know, they’d absolutely want to interact with this sort of thing.
很多人说,你知道让我的某某亲戚喝什么东西是不可能的,但是他们绝对爱吃糖,所以他们绝对想尝试这样的东西。
