Purpose and goal
The main purpose of the projects is to provide people, who believe or know they are in danger of getting a cognitive disease, access to an easy-to-use tool. An aid that provides a reliable self-test, such as in case of suspicion of illness, helps the person to come into contact with a medical specialist and, in case of a diagnosis risk or illness, also help change his or her lifestyle. We want to improve the ability to self-test their cognitive ability to see if one is at risk of cognitive disease and to relieve the healthcare burden on society.
Expected results and effects
To create a credible and evaluated application so that anyone that worries about having dementia can have access to and can receive assistance. To create an ICT-based dementia diagnosis with the same assurance as a traditional dementia investigation. Providing individuals at risk of developing or having cognitive disease with a lifestyle change tool. In addition, the trip to USA is intended to help facilitate connections to make our vision a reality in that market and help spread Swedish knowledge to a much needed global population.
Planned approach and implementation
Geras plan is to launch in USA within 2-3 years. We have already made some partnerships with large Swedish and Chinese organisations, but wish to facilitate this further with the visit to USA. The goal is also to eventually launch to USA, so this trip will only help Geras raise more awareness about its mission and ensure that launching will be a success.
