  24. 24. Pilot Site Profile <ul><li>Pilots in Greece will be held in Thessaloniki and Athens. Pilots will run under the scientific co-ordination of the Medical School, and certain Neuropsychiatry/Gerontology experts. </li></ul><ul><li>The intervention will be held at the premises of the Greek Association of Alzheimer’s Disease and Relative Disorders – centre of St. Eleni, where all installations will be carried out. It is a non-profit organization founded in 1995, promoting support to people suffering of Alzheimer’s disease. The association establish collaborations with foreign institutions promoting scientific clinical and research activities. </li></ul>Athens, 20 May 2010
  25. 25. Physical description <ul><li>The LLM solution will be installed in two distinct rooms at the buildings of the Greek Association of Alzheimer Disease and Relative Disorders – St. Eleni. </li></ul><ul><li>The CTC intervention will be performed in a room equipped with 15 personal computers and an equal number of headphones. </li></ul><ul><li>The second room will be equipped with both the ILC and the PTC equipment. </li></ul><ul><li>A limitation posed by the physical layout of this room is the fact that the PTC will be performed in groups, much like the CTC part of the LLM intervention. Therefore, the ILC functions will be limited to those of the scenario where fall detection is feasible but the participant’s identity cannot be extracted. </li></ul>Athens, 20 May 2010
  26. 26. Access to pilot target population <ul><li>Participants will be: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Mild Dementia (Alzheimer) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Cognitively Healthy Elderly </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Control Group(s) – </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Active Control Group (group with cognitive stimulation and performing daily life activities, but not LLM solution) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Passive Control Group (no cognitive stimulation; treatment as usual; waiting list for future iteration of pilot) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The staff at the Greek Association of Alzheimer Disease and Relative Disorders – St. Eleni psychologists and technicians will help during both recruitment and intervention. </li></ul>Athens, 20 May 2010
  27. 27. Pilot dates <ul><li>Acquisition of equipment (already acquired and tested a sample of Wii devices) </li></ul><ul><li>Acquisition of total equipment – February 2010. </li></ul><ul><li>LLM system completion – Late March – early April 2010 </li></ul><ul><li>Equipment installation and system configuration April 2010 </li></ul><ul><li>Initial Users tests May-June 2010 </li></ul><ul><li>Initial active use in a planned pilot phase - September 2010 </li></ul>Athens, 20 May 2010
  28. 28. # of iterations <ul><li>3 pilot iterations will be carried out in the buildings St. Eleni and St. Ioannis. The iteration’s duration was formed considering both the intervention requirements and the limitations posed by the Greek holidays (summer, Christmas, New Year’s Eve and Easter). Therefore the first one starts on September (month 16) till November (month 18). The second iteration starts on December (month 19) till March (month 22). The third iteration starts on Mid March (month 22) until June (month 25). </li></ul><ul><li>Before the initiation of each iteration, the screening procedure will take place for all the participants. After each iteration, the cognitive and physical status of the participants would be evaluated using the outcome measures. </li></ul>Athens, 20 May 2010
  29. 29. Timeline <ul><li>The intervention will be held in Saint Eleni and Saint Ioannis buildings in Thessaloniki. </li></ul><ul><li>The LLM intervention would be divided in three groups. </li></ul><ul><li>The first group would be consisted of Mild Cognitive Impaired (MCI) participants, the second by mildly demented Alzheimer Disease and the third group would be consisted of cognitively healthy participants. </li></ul><ul><li>The same division would be followed for the cognitive intervention and for the active control participants performing stimulation tasks </li></ul><ul><li>Therefore, there are 9 groups, of 10 participants each. </li></ul><ul><li>The participants will be expected to complete 40-48 cognitive and 40-48 physical sessions. </li></ul><ul><li>The intervention is consisted of 4 sessions per week for a period of 12 weeks. The session’s duration is 1 hour (clear time). </li></ul>Athens, 20 May 2010
  30. 30. Cognitive Training Procedure/Duration <ul><li>The cognitive training procedure is expected to utilize 10 PCs equipped with headphones. </li></ul><ul><li>The cognitive intervention would be performed using the Brain Fitness software (provided by the Posit Sciences) containing auditory stimuli. </li></ul><ul><li>During each training session, the participant is expected to work with four of the six exercises for 15 minutes per exercise (clear time). </li></ul>Athens, 20 May 2010
