  • Cognitive therapy tool for clinicians. These therapies are not designed to replace the clinician, but tools to augment their important work with patients.The results need specialist interpretation to be factored into the total picture of what’s happening with a patientIn the face of managed improvement of cognitive impairments, guidance from human coaches is critical to engagement and improvement
  • We are introducing the platform with 2 programs from the outsetRehabilitation and Schizophrenia with an ‘Aging Well’ program and ‘Depression’ to come in the coming months.
  • Let me comment briefly on how the programs are developed.It’s a straight forward process that relieves the designer of a lot of developmentTo illustrate this is, I’ll run through the current programs – schizophrenia and rehabilitation – and show how they were developed and how they are used
  • So, I mentioned earlier that, through the professional interface, a patient account is establish and the various modules from the schizophrenia program are assigned to the patient.What you see here is typical of that the patient will see when they log into their account that has been set up by their therapistThey see all the exercises that have been assigned to them.
  • Here’s an example of the results screens seen in the schizophrenia programVisually it’s easy for the clinician to see the progress of a patient in all areas based on the level they have achieved in the exercises.On a given exercise, they can drill down into the detail and see how much effort it has taken to achieve that level of performance.HAPPYneuron PRO is a tool for the informed therapist or clinician, not a replacement. Key to treating any condition is full knowledge of the patient.
  • We are please to bring an enabling platform to the marketplace that has features and clear benefits for all stakeholders.
  • For Researchers – delivers an unprecedented level of control enabling them to easily customize the type of cognitive stimulation delivered.

    24. 24. Endorsements<br />“The advantage of the HAPPYneuron PRO platform is that it allows individuals to receive a more consistent dose of cognitive enhancement, thereby enabling the flexibility to design innovative research studies not previously possible.” Christopher R. Bowie, PhD, Dept Psychiatry & Psychology, Queen’s University, Ontario, Canada.<br />&quot;The HAPPYneuron PRO platform delivers engaging cognitive skills training programs. Our patients are motivated to work on these web-based exercises because of the appeal of the exercises themselves, and because they are able to track their own progress and performance.“ Enid Gertmenian, LMSW, Lieber Recovery and Rehabilitation Clinic, New York City.<br />&quot;The program for schizophrenia offered at is the best material I have ever seen for cognitive remediation for my patients.&quot; Torben Christensen, Ph.D., Clinical psychologist. Aarhus University Hospital, Risskov, Denmark<br />
