PersoCo - Personalized digital self-management services for cognitive assessment and rehabilitation

The project is developing a digital cognitive assessment and intervention service for people experiencing cognitive decline. Users get insight in their cognitive functioning and are offered solutions for their daily life problems. Prolonged usage is stimulated by innovative personalized engagement techniques.

The service provides solutions for everyday life problems based on cognitive rehabilitation techniques. It teaches compensatory strategies, such as memory strategies, that are known from recent research to have larger effects on everyday living than cognitive remediation. The training is innovative because it is a first-of-a-kind individualized training without a therapist.

The service is intended for people aged 50+ with normal age-related decline, patients with mild cognitive impairments or with an early stage neurodegenerative disease.
