Supported by clinical research

Clinical research by Rovner et al. has shown that behavioral activation therapy can significantly reduce the risk of progressive dementia.


“We found that after 2 years, participants in the behavioral activation group were only half as likely to show deterioration in cognitive tests at a given time point.” – Dr. Barry Rovner

Easy to use

The app is specifically designed for people with mild cognitive impairment and early dementia. Simple controls, large font size and visual support help users to navigate the app. Only basic smartphone skills are required.

At each stage of the development, people affected by MCI and mild dementia were involved to make sure the app meets their needs.

Slow down cognitive decline

You cannot cure dementia. But you can slow it down. 

Behavioral activation therapy stimulates the brain in three important areas: social, physical, cognitive. This can slow down cognitive decline and help stay independent for longer.


“There is no other digital therapy that uses the behavioral activation approach for dementia. It is a unique approach designed to give back some degree of control over the rate of cognitive decline.” – Patrick Fissler, PhD
