CogniFit's platform is easy to use and is accessible by older adults and those with less experience in technology. The mental exercise batteries from CogniFit have been adapted, as much as possible, to the cognitive limitations or deficits that may appear due to normal or pathological aging. CogniFit automatically tailors itself to the specific needs of each user. The program evaluated the cognitive skills of the person and creates a dynamic intervention program specifically designed for each user. The mental exercises, games, and tools for adults are leaders in the prevention of cognitive decline and make it possible to face multifunctional decline and stimulate cognitive skills. In the case that there is already signs of aging (memory loss, some type of decline, cognitive deterioration, brain damage, dementia, etc.), CogniFit can help provide strategies to keep these problems from advancing, or stop them in some cases, thanks to the compensatory cognitive mechanisms.
  • Family members: Family is essential to help older adults maintain or improve their cognitive function and mental speed in order to reach satisfactory aging and decrease dependency. These cognitive tests can be used before the first signs of cognitive decline, to help delay or prevent them entirely. This scientific resource makes it possible to complete the brain training programs with the family, and allows you to see cognitive progress over time. The results and evolution analysis of the user's cognitive state help family members be more conscious of the cognitive characteristics and mental evolution of their loved ones, helping to detect possible deficits or compare mental state to other users of the same age
  • Healthcare professionals: This validated cognitive stimulation and neurorehabilitation tool can help healthcare professionals (doctors, psychologists, etc.), detect, diagnose, and create an appropriate intervention for the cognitive disorders associated with aging. CogniFit makes it possible to work with the specific areas that have been altered through natural aging. CogniFit uses normalized data that helps differentiate between normal aging and pathological aging in a patient. The patterns of strengths and weaknesses can be used when planning a treatment plan and measuring progress. This battery of cognitive stimulation exercises is a great complement to a non-pharmacological therapy in adults and can be practiced in the office from the user's home.
  • Senior residencies and geriatric interventions:: The psychostimulation and rehabilitation exercises from CogniFit are easy-to-use, and automatically adapt to the specific characteristics of each user. CogniFit works with professional day homes and assisted living centers that help to prevent dependence. CogniFit can help improve professional practice and provide a way to improve the well-being of people who suffer from cognitive deterioration, brain damage, dementia, etc. The characteristics of this personalized cognitive intervention can also help optimize quality of life in caretakers and family members.

CogniFit's tools make it possible for researchers and scientists from around the world to study, from a neuropsychological point-of-view, the factors that affect normal or pathological aging and evaluate the relationship to neuroplasticity, multidimensionality in aging, cognitive reserve, learning, etc. Evaluating and stimulating cognitive functions in study participants has never been so easy. All you have to do is register.

    When should one use the CogniFit Active Aging program?

    The brain training programs from CogniFit for active aging are designed to intervene in the most common complaints that appear as we age:

    Cognitive decline prevention

    CogniFit has a primary and secondary prevention tool to help maintain independence of seniors for longer: The main risk factor of dementia is age. As we age, our cognitive skills deteriorate, until it turns into mild cognitive decline, or even some type of dementia like Alzheimer's.

    The brain games and psychostimulation and rehabilitation tools from CoginFit for adults and older adults is a leading tool to help prevent cognitive decline. The best way to help face and prevent multifunctional decline is to stimulate the preserved or less affected skills, especially in older adults.

    Scientific research has shown that strengthening memory and other important cognitive skills may help reduce the risk of having some cognitive decline, prolong independence, and improve mood, well-being, and quality of life in older adults and the elderly.

    In the cases where there is already a characteristic of pathological aging (memory loss, cognitive decline, brain damage, etc.), CogniFit can help carry out strategies aimed at helping to prevent these deficits from advancing (cognitive, physical, or other), and to help stop or slow down the evolution of the disease with compensatory cognitive mechanisms. This means that it can help the decline or damage less apparent and can help improve quality of life in the adult, senior, or the elderly.

    Memory loss and forgetfullness

    CogniFit as a stimulation or rehabilitation tool in adults and seniors: Memory lapses and alterations in memory are common in older adults. Having trouble remembering things from the day before, or difficulty retaining information they just received are common examples, and some of the most common complaints from associated to memory decline related to aging.

    Memory loss and other cognitive and behavioral alterations can threaten one's independence, well-being, and social and family stability.

    CogniFit active aging tool is made up of a battery of memory exercises designed specifically to help treat memory loss in adults and seniors and can help minimize the symptoms of amnesic disorders in the elderly.

    Dementia or early-stage Alzheimer's

    Cognitive stimulation for patients with some type of dementia or early-stage Alzheimer's:Alzheimer'sis the most common cause of dementia. It mainly affected long-term memory, but can also alter sub-types of memory, like working memory. Alzheimer's disease, as well as other dementias, are incapacitating disorders, which is why it is so important to practice psychostimulation exercises that can help improve neuroplasticity and cognitive reserve. Training the brain can help minimize risk, and in some cases, even prevent dementia or Alzheimer's from appearing.

    However, when dementia is in its initial stages, the cognitive stimulation program from CogniFit can be of great benefit. The battery of validated brain exercises makes it possible to carry our a stimulation and rehabilitation program of the functions damaged by dementia or Alzheimer's and slow the advance of the symptoms of cognitive decline.

    CogniFit also offers cognitive stimulation for early-stage Parkinson's or Alzheimer's disease. These mental exercises help work neuroplasticity and cognitive reserve to help prevent dementia and reduce decline caused by these pathologies to prolong the person's independence.

    Executive dysfunction

    CogniFit to help with executive dysfunction in adults and seniors: Aging may cause decline, deterioration, or damage to the prefrontal lobes. This part of the brain is in charge of what is known as the executive functions, which are essential for carrying out an adapted social behavior and conserving the ability to take care of oneself.

    The executive functions are in charge of regulating behavior. If there is damage to the frontal lobes, the executive functions may be altered, which can case executive dysfunction (also called dysexecutive syndrome). This disorder is quite common in dementia, and may incapacitate adults, seniors, or the elderly, and may bring about impulsiveness, poor planning, and poor behavior control.

    CogniFit's tool for cognitive maintenance and active aging is made of a battery of exercises aimed at stimulating and rehabilitating executive functions. Activating and strengthening this group of cognitive skills may help older adults maintain their ability to plan and regulate behavior.

    Fall prevention, motor coordination, and praxias

    CogniFit to improve motor coordination, praxia, and fall prevention in older adults: Mobility and coordination are two abilities that may be reduced as we age. This problem may be greater with Parkinson's disease. Praxias refers to the ability to carry out certain movements with certain parts of the body, which may also be altered as we age.

    In general, falls are one of the most dangerous problems of poor motor coordination, as it can cause physical damage or hurt cognitive skills, if it affects the brain. This is why CogniFit also has activities to improve coordination in users. The cognitive training from Cognifit can help prevent falls in older adults.

    Propblems with temporal or spatial orientation

    To prevent problems with orientation and attention in older adults: Attention and concentration are usually affected as we get older or as dementia develops. The lack of attention and concentration usually occurs in the form of distractibility, difficulty maintaining attention for long periods of time, inability to inhibit automatic responses or avoid interference in attention.

    As deterioration becomes more apparent, problems can be detected in the temporal or spatial orientation, which consists of the ability to know at what moment (year, season, month, day of the month, day of the week or even time of day), or where you are. In advanced cases, the disorientation of the elderly can also affect personal orientation (information about oneself, such as the name or where one lives).

    Attention problems and confusion in the elderly can make it difficult to live without help. For this reason, CogniFit has numerous clinical games to stimulate attention and concentration that can help strengthen attentional abilities.

    Language maintenance and communication

    CogniFit to improve language maintenance and communication: Language and communication skills can be affected with advancing age. Problems can arise both in written language and in spoken language. It encompasses both the production of language and its understanding.

    Older adults often complain about a difficulty to recall words, which suggests problems in the naming ability. That is, older adults often have trouble finding the names of words. This can happen, for example, when sitting at the table and not being able to remember the name of the salad dressing or the grandchild who comes to sit at the table. CogniFit has a number of games and exercises to help improve this skill.

    Mental lucidity and reasoning

    CogniFit to help boost reasoning, thinking, and mental lucidity in older adults: Fluid intelligence usually decreases with age. This type of intelligence refers to the ability to adapt to new situations through logical, abstract reasoning. Crystallized intelligence, consists of all the learning that we acquire during our life and that helps us to solve problems, tends to increase with the age, although it is not immune to the cognitive deterioration.

    Therefore, our ability to reason and think in a lucid manner can also be altered with age and, especially, with dementia. CogniFit has designed a series of mental games for seniors to help maintain or strengthen this ability to reason.

    Maintenance of visuoperceptive, visuospatial and visuo-structural functions

    CogniFit to help minimize the problems with visuoperceptive, visuospatial and visuo-structural functions: With age, it is common to lose hearing or visual capacity. In addition, this deterioration can also affect perception. That is, the ability of our brain to interpret the stimuli that reach our senses. With age, visoperceptive, visuospatial and visoconstructive abilities can be altered (ability to interpret what we see or construct ourselves).

    With dementia, it is common to see one or several of these abilities altered at the same time. CogniFit games have a high perceptual component, which can help maintain these perceptual abilities.

    Problems with insomnia

    CogniFit to help minimize problems with insomnia in older adults: As we get older, duration and quality of sleep tend to decrease. Insomnia is a relatively common disorder among older adults. The lack of sleep derived from insomnia can negatively affect different cognitive abilities, such as memory.

    That is why it is so important to treat this disorder properly. The Personalized Training Program from CogniFit training can help older adults improve their cognitive abilities and their sleep quality.

    Symptoms of depression

    CogniFIt to help improve the symptoms of depression in older adults: Unfortunately, depression is common in aging populations. The causes of depression are diverse and may accentuate the related cognitive decline related to aging.

    CogniFit has a specific training for people with this disorder. Combining CogniFit training with the usual treatment for depression and bipolar disorder can help reduce depression while strengthening your cognitive abilities.

    How does CogniFit work? Cognitive stimulation and rehabilitation tools for adults, seniors, and the elderly

    The cognitive maintenance and active aging program from CogniFit has been created by a team of scientists and neuropsychologists who are experts in neuroplasticity. It has been demonstrated that CogniFit's psychostimulation and cognitive rehabilitation instruments allow the activation and strengthening of fundamental cognitive abilities through neuroplasticity.

    By training the brain with this leading program in the field of cognitive intervention and rehabilitation, certain patterns of neuronal activation can be activated. The repetition of these patterns through simple clinical tasks and validated mental games can help improve the connectivity of our brain, encourage the creation of new synapses and myelinize neural circuits capable of recovering and/or reorganizing our main cognitive functions

    CogniFit works to help maintain cognitive skills that have not suffered damage in old age, and encourage the acquisition of new learning. Fighting against cognitive deterioration can help achieve a healthy aging and prolong the independence of the person, which translates into an improvement in well-being and quality of life.

    Despite the physical and cognitive decline that we experience as we age, we conserve most of the brain cells until the end of our lives. So if we continue to use our brain actively, we will be able to build new connections and neural pathways. The psychostimulation and neurorehabilitation of CogniFit have been conceived to stimulate the adaptive potential of the nervous system and help the brain to recover from structural alterations, disorders or injuries where our cognitive functions are affected. CogniFit mental exercises and games promote a continuous cerebral effort, which favors the ability to adapt to the environment and to model or improve the quality of life in elderly people. Contributing, in some cases, to preventing cognitive deterioration.

    It is important to keep in mind that the cognitive maintenance exercises, stimulation, and functional rehabilitation do not consist of performing activities at random. It is not enough to practice any brain games. An appropriate brain gym requires a therapeutic objective, a theoretical framework, a scientific validation and a regulation of the exercises, such as that offered by CogniFit. Only then will we know that our brain is receiving adequate cognitive stimulation.

    The CogniFit program for maintenance and active aging has been used for years around the world, and has been highly effective in people with cognitive impairment or impairment, dementia, or mild-stage Alzheimer's, as well as in healthy people.

    Trained cognitive skills and areas

    The cognitive areas are not unitary constructs, but are formed by a series of cognitive skills closely related to each other. In the case of the elderly, it is not usually a single skill that is affected. A combination of these alterations usually occurs. The CogniFit tool for active and healthy aging measures and trains up to 23 of the cognitive abilities commonly affected in old age:






    How long should adults and seniors train their brains?

    CogniFit's personalized brain training lasts only between 10 and 15 minutes, so it's easy to find a time of day to train. A training session 3 non-consecutive days a week may be enough to see an improvement in the cognitive state of the user. In order to perceive the first benefits, we recommend using the brain stimulation and cognitive rehabilitation, at least for 8 weeks.

    Each CogniFit training session is made of two brain games and an assessment task. This format makes it possible to stimulate the main cognitive abilities, as well as evaluate cognitive performance in each session. CogniFit will give us a constant feedback of the cognitive state and will automatically regulate the difficulty and type of brain training exercises.

    What happens when seniors and adults don't stimulate or rehabilitate their cognitive abilities?

    Neural connections are not generated randomly: The brain provides resources for those connections that we stimulate frequently and eliminates those that it considers less useful. In this way, we save neuronal resources and maintain the health of our brain in good condition. However, when skills are not used, the will deteriorate.

    With increasing age and decreased activity, these connections may receive less stimulation, affecting various cognitive abilities. For this same reason, the active aging activities of CogniFit can be very beneficial. They allow to stimulate the most commonly affected cognitive abilities in aging and reduce possible deterioration. In this way, older people could maintain their autonomy for longer.

    Specific programs of CogniFit for cases of cognitive decline

    In addition to the intervention and cognitive stimulation program for an active and healthy aging that CogniFit offers and that helps improve the general set of functions and mental abilities that are altered in old age, CogniFit also makes offers specific tools that allow us to help specific problems or pathologies.

    Dementia, brain damage, neurodegenerative diseases or other disorders such as depression or insomnia, are diseases that appear with an unfortunately high frequency in the elderly population. To deal with these problems CogniFit offers specific tools that make it possible to help improve cognitive deterioration associated with some of the pathologies or disorders of adulthood and old age.

    • Adults with Brain DamageCognitive stimulation for adults with brain damage: Acquired brain damage can generate various sequelae depending on the area of the brain affected by the injury. This training stimulates some of the most commonly affected abilities.
    • Adults with Mild Cognitive ImpairmentCognitive stimulation for adults with MCI: Mild cognitive impairment is a decline in mental abilities that can occur as we age. This training tries to reduce the impact of the deterioration through the stimulation of these cognitive capacities.
    • Elderly with dementiaCognitive stimulation for people with dementia: Dementia causes deterioration in various cognitive areas and usually appears in some the elderly. This training seeks to stimulate the cognitive areas that are often affected.

    Active aging: Why is stimulation and cognitive rehabilitation necessary?

    As we age, our bodies suffer noticeable changes and loss of abilities that were once easy. This is the same for the brain. Loss of cognitive skills is a common part of aging and can make it difficult to learn new skills or concepts. These cognitive changes do not suggest any type of disease or disorder, but rather that it is more difficult to do certain activities than before.

    The impact of age on our cognitive abilities can be reduced in part by active aging. CogniFit has shown that it can help improve the cognitive abilities of healthy seniors or those with pathologies.

    CogniFit's tools for cognitive maintenance and active aging can help to stimulate and rehabilitate the cognitive abilities of those adults, or older adults who suffer some kind of mild cognitive impairment, some disorder or who are in an initial state of dementia. In addition, CogniFit is also useful for older adults who have suffered some type of stroke, brain damage or head trauma and who have lost part of their cognitive abilities.

    In short, CogniFit is useful for a wide variety of older adults:

    • It can help with active aging in healthy older adults, so that they optimize the state of their diverse cognitive abilities.
    • The CogniFit tool may also be useful in older people who are suffering from some mild degree of dementia or cognitive impairment. CogniFit will not cure your disease, but it can keep your cognitive abilities active to minimize the loss of functionality.

    The cognitive training from CogniFit also makes it possible to retrain the cognitive abilities affected by an acquired brain damage.

    Active aging as a strategy for the future

    According to the WHO, in the coming years, the percentage of people over 60 will almost double. Life expectancy has increased, but so have cases of dementia and, with it, health demands.

    This has important implications at the demographic level and will imply important expenses for health. This is why it is important that each one of us take care to optimize our health (mental, physical, etc.) and from the institutions we carry out strategies focused on the maintenance and active aging of the population, using resources and tools like those CogniFit offers.

    Older adults have a high risk of suffering diseases that involve alterations at the cognitive level. Active aging programs are aimed at those adults who begin to approach the elderly, as well as those who are already in this age group.

    With age, there is a decrease in neuroplasticity. To avoid this "cognitive aging", it is necessary to apply active aging. Through cognitive psychostimulation, such as cognitive training programs for older adults that CogniFit offers, it is possible to strengthen cognitive functions altered with age, avoiding or reducing their deterioration.

    Active aging and CogniFit cognitive training hope to help keep the elderly living independently for longer. With the cognitive deterioration caused by aging, almost all of our cognitive skills can be affected. CogniFit is an excellent means of applying cognitive stimulation and, thus, attenuate the negative effects of aging. In this way, CogniFit can help improve the autonomy and quality of life of the elderly.
