Preliminary Investigation of a Newly Developed Tele-Rehabilitation Program for People Living with MCI Condition

Abstract

Mild cognitive impairment is a borderline condition between normal aging and first stages of dementia. Programs based on multidimensional trainings appear to have a role in reducing cognitive decline. A 8 weeks tele-rehabilitation program, administered through an ad-hoc designed web-application, was developed. The design of the web-application was based on feedback received from specialists, patients and caregivers. The program comprised three trainings: cognitive, physical and social. Thirty subjects (age 73 ± 4 yrs) with mild cognitive impairment were included in the study to investigate the feasibility of the proposed program. 25 participants completed the program and showed a high adherence to the proposed activities (85% and 83% for cognitive and physical activity, respectively). Good usability and high level of appreciation (mean appreciation = 3.7 ± 0.8, scale range 1–5) were reported together with physical and memory benefits. The proposed program seems thus suitable to provide multidimensional trainings to subjects living with mild cognitive impairment.
