Digital applications to improve cognitive and mental health

Sociable project logoSOCIABLE offers ICT-assisted cognitive training and social activation to senior citizens, older adults with Mild Cognitive Impairment and patients suffering from mild Alzheimer’s disease, helping them stay mentally fit. At the heart of the project is a single platform (a tablet, an 'all-in-one' PC or a 'digital table', a table with a touch-screen) and over 25 applications.

These include cognitive training exercises (covering logical reasoning, language and constructional practice and spatial orientation). They also include the “Book of Life”, a personal diary application, where people can store life experiences, memories and thoughts, in the form of texts, pictures and video, which can also be shared with others, thus remaining active socially.

SOCIABLE is the result of a European co-funded project under the CIP-ICT-PSP Programme and is being used in seven organisations in Greece, Italy, Norway and Spain. The project coordinator SingularLogic S.A. is planning further commercial roll out of Sociable and is negotiating with a big medical centre in Germany to include Sociable solutions in its services.
