The research field presented a vast category of cognitive intervention (cognitive testing, cognitive training, and cognitive-motor rehabilitation) applications used in correlation with dementia needs.

The resulted platform aims to train different cognitive abilities of the users but also ensure a pleasant and engaging experience.
