I’m delighted to let you know that I am now working with the fantastic team at Cambridge Cognition in bringing their touchscreen assessment software for detecting Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) to the Corporate Market.
As with any health risk, the earlier something is detected the better the chances of a positive outcome. This is particularly important for MCI because those people affected have a highly increased risk of eventually developing Alzheimer’s or another type of dementia.
Cantab Mobile is more sensitive to mild cognitive impairment than any other cognitive assessment – click here to find out why.
It also differentiates between memory problems and mood disorders which is an area of significant mis-diagnosis.
The demographics of the workforce are changing. By 2020, people aged 50+ will represent 48% of the adult population and 32% of working age population (ONS). For whatever reason whether it be the abolition of the default retirement age, personal economic necessity or filling shortfalls in workforce numbers, we are all working longer.
Employers are now beginning to realise that cognitive impairment is one of the biggest health risks that needs to be addressed. With over 30 years of optimising mental health through research, treatment and diagnosis, Cambridge Cognition have what it takes to help.
More to follow soon.
