Who can twiddle muffs help?

The target groups of the twiddle muffs are e.g. people with memory disease, autistic and visually impaired people and people with adhd. Twiddle muffs have also been used in storytime lessons to make it easier for children to focus on listening. You can give a muff or a twiddle bracelet as an individual gift to anyone to warm their hands.

Paying attention to the recipient of the muff

The muff can be personalized by taking into account the interests of the recipient: what has been your loved one's favorite place or landscape where they felt to be at home? What is his pet, favorite color, favorite season? The starting point for the personalization of the muff can also be the colors, the hobbies of the recipient of the muff and other points of interest.

Pleasant things are related to emotional memories, things that evoke positive feelings. Emotional memories are also the most permanent memories and last for more than decades. Emotional memories can be used when making a personalized twiddle muff for a memory sufferer.

Other things to consider when making muffs

The muffs are washable and durable. They are made taking into account the fact that they must not have parts that can come off when jumping. For example, buttons or beads are not suitable for everyone's muffs and if they are used, they should be well fastened.
