Over the past several years, York University has studied the use of cognitive-motor integration. This neuroscience research has resulted in the development of a computer tablet-based application called BrDI, which has shown strong potential as brain health assessment tool.
BrDI is able to indicate functional problems related to head injury and dementia risk.
Prior to this project, the front end of the application had been developed and was in the beta testing stages. However, the crucial component of ‘back end’ development for broad deployment had yet to be accomplished. Further research validating the application itself in ‘in-field’ situations was required. As part of this project, the development and research teams worked in conjunction with application developer, Andy Fire Games, to further enhance the technology.
