CogniViTra
Cognitive Vitality Training at home

Challenge


The growth in the incidence of different neurodegenerative diseases that leads to cognitive impairment is a growing problem worldwide. Current care systems lack resources to address the growing number of patients requiring intervention, highlighting the need for new solutions. COGNIVITRA targets people above 50 years old at risk of cognitive impairment and with at least one risk factor for mental health. COGNIVITRA will engage end-users in co-creation and co-design of the COGNIVITRA product.

Solution

COGNIVITRA will develop a ICT-based solution to support cognitive vitality training at home. COGNIVITRA product will integrate components for supporting cognitive and physical exercises – dual-task training - (web-based tools and movement sensors), a centralized platform that will facilitate the interface and communication between patients and care providers.

Objectives, Activities and Results expected / achieved

COGNIVITRA will create a unique solution that will allow patients to increase the number of sessions and overcome restrictions imposed by the availability of care resources (i.e. human and physical infrastructures). The extension from the clinic set up to the home environment will create fewer burdens for caregivers (formal and informal), because the tools needed for training sessions will be at home and become more available. A solution for care professionals use their time more efficiently by facilitating access to data referring to longer periods of progress instead of punctual assessment made during clinical appointments and provide a channel of communication between patients and caregivers.
