HeadApp for clinics, practices and at home –
Therapy for patients with acquired brain damage

Modules of the group “Attention”

Most affected people have problems in the fields attention / concentration / focus, in the area of memory and in the area of speech (aphasia).

HeadApp training starts in these very areas.

Pick It:
Attention and focus

The trainee views a set of images. They look very similar, but have hidden differences. The task is to find differences and similarities.

This action requires a high degree of focus. In addition to attention, visual scanning (for patients with visual neglect and hemianopsia) is trained.

With increasing difficulty, the number of images increases and the distinctness decreases.

See It:
Divided attention / Scenic memory

The trainee is eyewitness to a street scene. The surroundings and the events happening (visual and acoustic stimuli) have to be memorized.

After a short period, the events seen and things heard have to be reproduced from memory. Using multiple choice, individual contents and events are reviewed.

Match It:
Finding pairs, visual scanning, calculating and money

The therapy module “Match It” visually trains aspects of the selective, divided and spatial attention.

4 training modes are implemented: comparing images, calculating, tasks with money and tasks for mental rotation.

The ability to visually scan is trained because further areas of the screen have to be scanned permanently to solve the task.

Modules of the group “Memory”

Memory disorders after brain damage occur in around 50-65% of the patients treated in the rehabilitation clinics. Although these do not completely disappear despite therapy, our modules help to mitigate the consequences.

Learn It:
Communicating learning and memory strategies

HeadApp has a module to communicate learning and memory strategies. LearnIt explains with interactive examples, how to memorize things easier. Voice output is taken for granted.

Flip It and Pair It:
Short-term memory

Imagine having 800 memory games in your locker. You don’t? Then simply make use of HeadApp!

In two game modes, one can memorize and rediscover images. With an increasing degree of difficulty, one has to memorize more and more items. Additionally, the complexity of image contents can be adjusted.

For patients with aphasia, a special version of the program was created. Transferring memory contents from images to words or from words to images can be practiced.
