HeadApp is computer-base cognitive rehabilitation therapy. The program was developed for therapists in medical rehab centers, hospitals, geriatric facilities and doctor’s offices. Experts have long known that brain capacity training helps. What is new, is that affected people can also use HeadApp from the comfort of their home by using the HeadApp Home Version.
Due to internet-based information and data storage, training at home can be controlled and supervised by therapists.
The training consists of difficulty levels ranging from easy for patients to crazy for the most challenging training. Details can be found under Product.
Training with HeadApp usually starts in a rehabilitation center. After a stroke, concussion or brain surgery, patients have to practice concentration and mental recall. The specific term for this training is “Computer-based Cognitive Rehabilitation Therapy”.
Cognitive therapy, however, doesn’t only have an effect in case of severe deficits in brain capacity. HeadApp is also helpful in case of milder forms of concentration and memory disorders. Further classical areas of application are:
More detailed information can be found under Users.
Brain injuries often cause the loss of brain cells. Even the basic aging process affects brain capacity. Luckily, this doesn’t mean that the functions of these nerve cells are lost forever.
The maintained neurons can reconnect and form new networks. However, this doesn’t happen by itself. As with a muscle, which grows through training, new neural connections form in the brain through training. New areas undertake the skills that were lost earlier due to brain damage.
Many recent studies show that brain capacity training helps – see page Science. Train with HeadApp, make use of your possibilities and have fun doing so!
The HeadApp has in comparison to many other cognitive training programs a very appealing design, which makes the exercises interesting, so that no boredom comes up.
Due to the individually selectable degree of difficulty, the programs can be well adapted to the current performance of the patient, so that the training is neither too difficult nor too easy.
Very practical is also the option to underlay the programs the optokinetic stimulation. So you can combine every training program with neglect therapy.
Dear HeadApp team, first of all a 'thank you' for this great program.
I'm as a non-affected person have my pleasure in the good clear presentation of the tasks too.
For my husband we bought a tablet to use HeadApp, it's big enough and he can use HeadApp by tapping and wiping very well.
From the middle of last year we treated my husband by the program, a recommendation of his neuropsychologist.
My husband had a posterior infarction on the left, is completely mobile, but has amnesia, alexia, agnosia and hemianopia.
My name is Detlef E.
I had a severe traumatic brain injury. My therapist recommended HeadApp to me and I'm thrilled!
This is such a good therapy program, unimaginably good. It is great fun to train the brain, and you can see progress every day.
I use HeadApp 3 times 45 minutes a day....
My short-term memory was improved, on mental math I'm better than before the accident, and the reaction time is also much better.
Thanks for this great program!
