Dakim BrainFitness Now Available for Stroke/TBI Rehabilitation; #1 Brain Training System for Seniors Offers Entertaining Workout
Date:11/19/2009

NEW ORLEANS, Nov. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Dakim, Inc., today announced a new touchscreen-based alternative for stroke and traumatic brain injury (TBI) rehabilitation that provides a rigorous workout in an entertaining interactive format. Dakim® BrainFitness(TM), already the #1 brain training system in senior living communities, transforms standardized neurological tests into thousands of game-like activities with colorful graphics, music, film clips and friendly voiceovers, exercising six cognitive domains per session while also self-adjusting to users' abilities in real time.

Originally developed to help maintain brain health and combat dementia symptoms in the elderly, the Dakim brain training platform is currently used by more than 300 senior living communities to provide residents with daily cognitive stimulation. The new expansion into the rehabilitation market was spurred by therapist interest as well as use of the system at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C., to assist soldiers with TBI in regaining cognitive function.

"The feedback we're getting from speech pathologists in particular is that Dakim BrainFitness is more enjoyable for patients than conventional workbooks and exercises. It provides a thorough cognitive workout with the appearance and humor of a TV game show, customizes the 'show' for each user based on his or her responses, and adds variety to the therapy experience," said Dakim CEO Dan Michel. "All of these factors help produce results by keeping users engaged."

Patients with both mild and severe deficits also benefit from Dakim's use of practical, real-life situations in system activities that can help simplify the transition back to home and the community. Clinicians benefit from receiving novel therapy material individualized for each patient on a daily basis, helping to reduce preparation time and increase productivity as well as making each therapy session engaging a
