iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_01 2017

Brain Train is a mobile app addressed to people with Alzheimer's disease. Its main objective is to involve patients actively in their treatment. It offers many activities for them to maintain their functional and cognitive abilities. For example, it includes various brain training games and a day organizer. All these activities are recorded in an archive so as the doctor can monitor remotely the patient. By offering a variety of suitable cognitive exercises, the doctor is able to personalize the patient’s treatment. It also supports the caregivers by offering valuable advice on how to co-organize activities with the patient.

If Alzheimer's patients can actually use this app, it would undoubtedly be very helpful.
