Non-invasive neurotechnology reaches senior housing via ASHA-NeuroVigil innovative partnership



Senior Liv­ing Sees Huge Poten­tial in Res­i­dent Brain Data (Senior Hous­ing News):

The Amer­i­can Senior Hous­ing Asso­ci­a­tion (ASHA) has announced a new part­ner­ship that aims to use neu­ro­science to deter­mine whether senior liv­ing com­mu­ni­ties are ben­e­fit­ing their res­i­dents. As part of the ini­tia­tive, La Jol­la, Cal­i­for­nia-based Neu­roVig­il will mon­i­tor the aging brain and col­lect mas­sive amounts of data from senior liv­ing res­i­dents through its non-inva­sive iBrain technology…which con­verts elec­troen­cephalo­gram (EEG) into maps of brain activity.

The pro­gram, the orga­ni­za­tions say, will be option­al, on a vol­un­tary basis, non-inva­sive, will not require hos­pi­tal­iza­tion nor will it inter­fere with med­ical care, and all data will be anonymized.

We could not ask for a more sophis­ti­cat­ed neu­rotech­nol­o­gy part­ner to pro­vide assis­tance to our lead­ing mem­ber oper­a­tors and own­ers who have invest­ed tremen­dous ener­gy to devel­op var­i­ous cog­ni­tive enrich­ment, nutri­tion­al and well­ness pro­grams,” said David Sch­less, pres­i­dent of ASHA, in a writ­ten state­ment. “There is a con­sid­er­able need to objec­tive­ly ana­lyze the impact of these activ­i­ties on a very broad scale and we are excit­ed to be assist­ed by NeuroVigil.”
