VOL. 23, ISSUE 3 Remote Assessment of Cognitive Impairment Level based on Serious Mobile Game Performance: An Initial Proof of Concept
The number of individuals with permanent cognitive disabilities is increasing worldwide due to aging societies. It is important to longitudinally monitor changes in the cognitive functional and impairment levels of these individuals in order to evaluate the effectiveness of the prescribed intervention and enable individually-tailored therapeutic programs. In practice, different aspects of individuals’ cognition are assessed by clinically validated tools, such as the Mini Mental State Examination (MMSE). However, such a tool needs to be administered by trained clinical staff to achieve accuracy and reliability. This constraint serves as a major barrier that makes the frequent and longitudinal assessment difﬁcult.
