Dementia App receives multiple awards

By: Herr
BERLIN - Aug. 2, 2020 - PRLog -- It has been known for some time from several studies that cognitive tests can "predict" dementia 10-12 years before the first clinical symptoms. The American "Rush Institute for Healthy Ageing" recently showed in a prospective study 1) involving 2125 participants that this is possible even 18 years earlier.

A group of physicians has therefore developed a simple, validated and easily accessible multi-dimensional cognitive test - the DST App (Dementia Screening Test). The reliability of the test results, especially in the asymptomatic stage (MCI - Mild Cognitive Impairment), has been proven by clinical studies (sensitivity >96%, specificity>91%). The test has therefore been recognised as a medical device by the competent authorities, including the entire EU, Switzerland, Iceland, Norway, Liechtenstein, Canada and Australia.

Since then, the test has received several awards, including the
- Vision.A Award in Gold, as best patient App.
- Digimeda 2020 award - Top Dementia App, the only dementia app that is recognized as a medical device and validated by studies.
- ORCHA 2020: 1st place, best dementia app, and among the best rated medical apps ever
- iMedicalApps: "excellent app...the simpler the better, that's true for the DST."
- Center for Telematics and Telemedicine, Germany: confirms high level of data protection.

Many patients worry about dementia and dependence in old age. With the DST, these persons can be relieved of this worry to a certain extent. Your patient can find information on installation and handling at The test is conveniently carried out at home and thus relieves the daily routine in the practice. For most people, the test can give the "all-clear". Only if the result is conspicuous will your patient be advised to seek further medical examinations. The interpretation of the test results is as follows:

Interpretation of the test results
29-30 points    normal / no limitations detected
27-28 points    in some areas slight limitations are possible / DD MCI
24-26 points    slight limitations are possible / DD early Dementia
0-23  points    limitations are probable/ DD moderate to severe Dementia
