Preventing dementia in the early stages of development
Dementia, the most severe expression of cognitive impairment, currently affects nearly 50 million individuals worldwide. It has been shown that non-pharmacological interventions seem to have a positive impact on the onset of cognitive decline and dementia related risk factors. The EU-funded LETHE project aims to provide a data-driven risk factor prediction model for older individuals at risk of cognitive decline building upon big data analysis of observational and longitudinal intervention datasets from four European clinical centres. It will establish novel digital biomarkers for early detection of risk factors based on unobtrusive ICT-based passive and active monitoring. The aim of the project is a digital ICT-based preventive lifestyle intervention through individualised profiling, personalised recommendations, feedback and support.
