Short description

This software solution aims at preventing cognitive impairment and dementia through cognitive stimulation and training for elderly above 65 living at home and attending day care centres on a daily basis.
It is a combination of autonomous platform for cognitive training and games, based on virtual reality and a dedicated app. It not only focuses on mental training and on detecting possible cognitive impairment, but also on a more efficient way to manage these therapies and to analyse their results, making use of technology for calculation, executive functions, language, memory and orientation, in order to improve patients’ quality of life.
The implementation aims at improving the overall well-being of the patients, contributing to the early detection of neurodegenerative conditions, as well as of frailty signs and symptoms, and effectively reducing the accuracy of accidents related to such conditions.
