BrainCheck: Worried about Memory Loss?
What is BrainCheck?
BrainCheck is a fun, easy way to assess your cognitive health in less than 15 minutes. Just like taking a person’s temperature or checking their blood pressure at the doctor’s office, we believe that everyone should know their cognitive status. That’s why we created BrainCheck.
Not an IQ test:
With BrainCheck, you’re not testing your intelligence and there’s no “pass” or “fail”. You’re simply trying to measure and better understand your cognitive health.
How BrainCheck works:
- *Take the Test:
Assess multiple cognitive domains in just 10 minutes. We store your scores, so you can see how your performance changes over time.
*2. Track your changes:
BrainCheck tracks changes in your memory, attention, mental flexibility, reaction time and more, connecting you and your doctor to real-time, actionable information about your cognitive health.
*3. Discuss with your doctor:
Your test results come with easy to read data and insights for each cognitive domain. Discuss your results and next steps with your doctor.
**Early detection is key:
With early detection, you can determine the cause of impairment and address changes early on. New research has found that certain lifestyle changes like diet and exercise can not only improve brain health but also help prevent dementia.
The science behind BrainCheck:
We turn gold-standard neurocognitive tests into interactive mobile games.
For decades, doctors and scientists have relied on pencil and paper tests to measure brain health. But modern technology enables us to bring these tests into the 21st century and offer people everywhere easy, affordable access to their cognitive health.
*10 Minutes: A snapshot of brain performance in about 10 minutes.
*40,000+Users: A robust normative database validated across ages 10-99.
*20 years: Backed by 20 years of research at Baylor College of Medicine.
1 in 3 Seniors dies with Alzheimer’s or another Dementia:
Know the signs: As people age, their cognitive abilities decline. However, when memory loss interferes with daily life there may be reason for concern. If you notice the warning signs in yourself or a loved one, don’t ignore them. Ask your doctor about BrainCheck.
*Forgetting new information: important dates or events or asking the same question over and over.
*Problems communicating: remembering words or following conversations.
*Getting lost: difficulty driving or forgetting where you are or how you got there.
*Difficulty completing familiar tasks: like managing your bills or making your favorite recipe.
*Psychological changes like inappropriateness, paranoia or agitation.
