Smart Ageing is an electronic test for the early assessment and training of mild cognitive disorders. It consists of five daily life tasks in a familiar 3D environment to assess different cognitive functions: executive function (reasoning and planning), attention (selective and divided ), memory (short and long-term perspective) and orientation (visuospatial).
The game reports automatically a diversity of parameters on the behavior of the user within the game, that are used to evaluate the cognitive skills. The ambition of the game is to bring motivation and fun in comparison to traditional paper and pencil tests.
