Emma develops mobile apps that empower patients with Alzheimer’s disease to stay connected with their loved ones.


The Timeless app empowers Alzheimer's patients to cope with their illness and stay engaged with friends and family. The screens show the two key features of the app: Updates and Today.

Updates lets patients receive photos that automatically show the names of the people in the photos.

Today is a simple calendar that lets the patient see daily information set up by their caregiver.

  • When creating their own app, students should create something related to a problem they want to solve.
