The brief

Hospital staff were facing challenges in motivating patients in their rehabilitation.

The solution

Working with hospital charity CW+, Imagineear developed a mobile phone app bringing together music and visual arts in an interactive audio tour for hospital patients. Patients are encouraged to tour the hospital’s art collection, accompanied by a suite of music specially commissioned by Grammy-winning composer Eric Whiteacre in association with the Royal College of Music, and composed by 15 winning student applicants from UK music conservatoires, promoting gentle exercise and relaxation.

The results

Based on research that shows different types of music can be used to stimulate movement in patients recovering from conditions such as strokes and can help to speed up patient rehabilitation, the app aims to improve both patient experience and clinical outcomes for the hospital.

"We are really excited about the Rhapsody Arts Trail. It has already demonstrated the powerful effects of bringing together arts, technology and medicine to improve patient experience and rehabilitation. I hope it will inspire future collaboration between musicians, artists and clinicians to benefit patients."
