iPad assessment for testing dementia within 10 minutes – CANTABmobile [VIDEO]

CantabCANTABmobile by Cambridge Cognition is an iPad assessment for testing memory to help doctors decide if someone’s memory is normal for their age, or if there are real concerns. The following video shows doctors discussing the benefits of CANTABmobile and the ability to diagnose Alzheimer’s disease more quickly:

  • Why should we detect dementia earlier?
  • What test are currently used?
  • What does CANTABmobile do differently?
  • How can CANTABmobile be used by medical practitioners?

NB: CANTABmobile is available only to registered healthcare professionals in the UK and not to the general public.
