10 Predictions on How Digital Platforms will Transform Brain Health in 2013

Just a quick note: we’ll host a webi­nar on Jan­u­ary 30th to dis­cuss key mar­ket pre­dic­tions based on “The Dig­i­tal Brain Health Mar­ket 2012–2020: Web-based, mobile and bio­met­rics-based tech­nol­ogy to assess, mon­i­tor and enhance cog­ni­tion and brain func­tion­ing”, our new mar­ket report.

Here are 10 pre­dic­tions, many of which will like­ly be real­ized before the end of 2013:

  1. More than one mil­lion adults in North Amer­i­ca alone will take a self-admin­is­tered annu­al brain health check-up via their iPad or Android tablet.
  2. More than one mil­lion ama­teur ath­letes will bet­ter man­age pos­si­ble con­cus­sions by tak­ing cog­ni­tive base­line tests via a mobile device.
  3. More than 150,000 teenage and adult AAA mem­bers will access web-based brain train­ing to become safer drivers.
  4. Bio­met­rics-aid­ed med­i­ta­tion will become the next big thing in cor­po­rate and con­sumer wellness.
  5. iPad-based cog­ni­tive screen­ings will inform more diag­noses of Alzheimer’s dis­ease and MCI than neuroimaging.
  6. Patients with Mul­ti­ple Scle­ro­sis in at least 10 coun­tries will be offered online cog­ni­tive train­ing togeth­er with drug-based ther­a­py to help address their condition.
  7. Insom­nia and depres­sion will be first-line treat­ed with com­put­er­ized Cog­ni­tive Behav­ioral Ther­a­py in at least two nation­al health services.
  8. The industry’s first brain-based bio­mark­er to pre­dict depres­sion treat­ment respons­es will be cleared by the FDA.
  9. Brain train­ing firm Lumos Labs and/or bio­met­rics-based devel­op­er Neu­roSky will file for an IPO.
  10. At least one major insur­er will launch an edu­ca­tion­al cam­paign to help adults proac­tive­ly take charge of their own “brain fit­ness” nav­i­gat­ing emerg­ing research and dig­i­tal brain health tools.

When and how:  Wednes­day, Jan­u­ary 30th, from 1:00 to 2.30pm ET. The webi­nar will be reserved for indi­vid­u­als and orga­ni­za­tions who order the mar­ket report. The agen­da will include:

  • Main mar­ket find­ings and predictions
  • Brief updates from CES 2013 in Las Vegas and the World Eco­nom­ic Forum Annu­al Meet­ing in Davos
  • Intro­duc­tions and open Q&A
