Abstract

Vascular Dementia (VaD) and Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) are the major causes of advanced cognitive decline. Serious Games (SGs) are computer games, recently proposed in the healthcare sector, specifically for the evaluation and rehabilitation of psychiatric and neurological disorders. The main objective of the GOAL project is to test a suite of SGs on a group of subjects with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) and Vascular Cognitive Impairment (VCI), conditions at risk of frank dementia, with the aim to characterize and quantify their functional, cognitive and motor abilities. The games were implemented using “ad hoc” ICT tools, for longitudinal monitoring and rehabilitation management directly from home. In this context, the Web-Application GOAL-App was developed for allow patients to access to scheduled physical and cognitive trainings. HTML5, JavaScript and CSS have been used to create a clear, intuitive and extremely easy to use UI. The back-end is JAVA-based. The preliminary results showed good feedback from the subjects, who regularly practiced the proposed scheduled trainings.
