Dakim BrainFitness Now Used in 286 Senior Living Communities, Adding 136 Sites in 12 Months for Dementia-Fighting System
Date:7/14/2009

SANTA MONICA, Calif., July 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Dakim Inc. announced today that the Dakim(R) BrainFitness(TM) System has now been adopted by 286 senior living communities in 34 states to help residents build their defenses against dementia and memory loss.

The emphasis on promoting sustained use - unique in the brain fitness market - is based on numerous studies demonstrating a substantial reduction in dementia risk with consistent, long-term mental stimulation. One 21-year study published in the New England Journal of Medicine concluded that the risk can be lowered by as much as 63%, apparently by building a cognitive reserve that can help compensate for brain aging.

The system is also useful for residents with mild dementia.
