We are currently developing NeuroGym, an interactive and fun assessment game for seniors and dementia patients.
Redesigning elderly games based on research results, data of players’ cognition are collected and analysed with machine learning models. It allows caretakers and doctors to better monitor and assess their conditions and provide timely treatment.
Voluntary and enjoyable personalised training
Longitudinal disease monitoring
