Flip It and Pair It: Short-term memory
Aim of the training
Imagine that you would have 800 memory games in your locker. You don’t? Then take the opportunity and use HeadApp!
The task is to memorize images and find them again. Therefor, two game modes are available. With increasing difficulty, more and more items have to be memorized. Additionally, the complexity of image contents can be adjusted.
For patients with aphasia, a special version of the program has been developed. The transfer of memory contents from images into words and from words into images can be trained.
Stars per level
The stars represent the number of tasks to be solved before the performance is finally evaluated. In case of a good performance, the difficulty degree increases. However, in case of a very weak performance, the difficulty degree can also decrease.
Limit training duration
In institutions with a limited duration of the therapy sessions, the duration of the training can be limited. A training time between 10 and 60 minutes can be set.
Aphasia mode (dimensions)
If necessary, the aphasia mode can be enabled.
The aphasia mode Image-Word is enabled. In this example, one has to search for the position of the correct image matching the word “banana”.
Course of the training
The difficulty degree of the training automatically in- or decreases, depending on the percentage of the correctly found images. There are 4 degrees of difficulty (Easy, Medium, Hard and Challenge); each degree has 8 levels of difficulty.
6 of the 10 cards are still visible. Two of them – those with the same dishes – are revealed. A 15-points-coin indicates that the cards match.
Six cards are visible. Four faces down, the other two show the same picture of a black-haired woman. The 15-points-coin indicates that the correct pair has been found.
