The application, attached with a backend system that records the performance, and analyze the numbers data into underable graph for caregivers. The caregivers can remotely, but closely update with the progress of users. The statistics include duration of play, score of each trial, average score as well as correlation with time.
Performance and data collected will be used for further research and customization for the games. Data like scores, changes of score over period of time will be further analyzed by our PhD-managed research time to improve the game experience, validity and reliability of dementia-targetted training. We respect confidentiality, therefore the data collected will only be used anonymously.
Dementia is not cue-able, however it is slow-able and people with dementia can work better, face this change better. The application with a soft, casual and relax UI, will implement a "Level" system to motivate users try, train, master and therefore face dementia better. Other than the score will "Level Up", the cognitive ability will also "Level Up". Proven with our research and verification, games in the application have significant effect on improving cognitive performance.
Mindvivid disrupts the regularity of using paper assessment of MOCA. The application developed by Mindvivid enables organization and users to have a preliminary-screening, and brain training with just an iPad. Connected with the backend system, the application introduces number of games targetting to 6 areas of cognitive impairment in dementia patients: visuospatial, language, memory, attention, flexibility, executive abilities. Users can now exercise their brain anywhere, anytime.
Attention is the behavioral and cognitive process of selectively concentrating on a discrete aspect of information. Common attention deficits of people with dementia include being easily distracted, having difficulty attending and also expericing longer than usual time of processing information / thinking.
Memory is the process in which information is encoded, stored, and retrieved. Encoding allows information from the outside world to be sensed in the form of chemical and physical stimuli. People with dementia may have difficulty in retrieving materials they have just read, calling the name of people whom they just met.
Executive functions are necessary for goal-directed behavior. They include the ability to initiate and stop actions, to monitor and change behavior as needed, and to plan future behavior when faced with novel tasks and situations. People with dementia may have difficulty planning, setting goals, reasoning and judging poorly in various situations.
