Computer Use May Predict Cognitive Impairment
A recently published an article in Alzheimer's & Dementia highlights ORCATECH research where more than 230,000 computer sessions from 113 computer users (mean age, 85 years; 38 with Mild Cognitive Impairment, or MCI) were acquired during a mean of 36 months. Results indicate that computer use change can be monitored unobtrusively and may help to detect individuals with MCI.
