Evangelical Homes of Michigan Adopts Dakim BrainFitness System, Becoming State's First Senior Facility With Brain Training Machine
Date:1/21/2009

akim BrainFitness meets that need better than any other product on the market."

The Dakim BrainFitness System is the result of eight years of development in consultation with top senior care providers and brain health researchers, inspired by studies indicating that regular cognitive stimulation can help fight memory loss and related ailments. One 21-year study published in the New England Journal of Medicine, for example, linked a 63% decreased risk of dementia to frequent participation in stimulating mental activities.

To encourage that sustained use, the Dakim BrainFitness System transforms standardized neurological tests and exercises into proprietary multimedia brain games that are presented in a game show-like format complete with colorful screen images, stories, voiceovers, and pre-1950s film and music clips that evoke seniors' youth. Activities are updated every few days to avoid boredom and played on a touch screen computer appliance that requires no mouse, keyboard, computer knowledge, or software loading by care providers.

The system self-adjusts the level of challenge for ability levels ranging from active seniors to early-stage Alzheimer's patients, enabling most seniors to use it without help from caregivers. Users are given positive verbal feedback even when they give the wrong answers to prevent discouragement and build self-esteem.

Each 20-minute session exercises short- as well as long-term memory, critical thinking, visuospatial ability, calculation, and language for a thorough brain workout. Activities range from anagrams and name-that-tune challenges to interactive puzzles and narrated literary passages with follow-up questions requiring use of short-term memory and deductive reasoning.

Online demos of assorted Dakim BrainFitness System exercises are available at www.dakim.com . A free 30-day trial is availa
