Objectives

The core scientific and technological objective of COGKNOW is to achieve a breakthrough in the  development of a successful, user-validated cognitive prosthetic device with associated services for people with mild dementia. We are addressing this core objective by focusing on scientific and technological objectives for the device, including:COGKNOW demo image

  • Remotely configurable reminding functionality
  • Communication and interaction functionality
  • Supportive technology for performing activities of daily living (ADLs), e.g., via voice prompts
  • Anomaly detection and emergency contact.

In order to achieve our aim of helping people with mild dementia to have greater actual and perceived autonomy and improved quality of life, we wish to help sufferers navigate through their day. Through cognitive reinforcement, our aim is to assist people to remember, maintain social contact, perform daily life activities and enhance their feelings of safety.

The objectives of COGKNOW can be explained in the context of improving functional status as outlined in the recently released International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF1).

COGKNOW is funded by the European Comission within the IST-2005/2006-2.5.11 (Unit H3 - eInclusion) Contract #034025
