Worldwide, 60 million people are suffering from dementia and the number is assumed to get triple in next 10-12 years. According to World Health Organization, in every 3 seconds, someone is taken as a victim of dementia. National Institute on Aging has recently in a study stated that with a change in lifestyle, adapting good living and change in nutrition habits can slow down early stage dementia.

Brain U Online has more than 20,0000 exercises for memory strengthening.

Developed by a geriatric clinical neuropsychologist and researcher Dr. John DenBeor focused the exercises on the app on executive function and processing speed of the human brain including speech, memory, language, concentration, and attention.

The other Brain U Lite app has hundreds of exercise designed to be used anytime after physical exercise.

Brain U Lite has various exercises in smaller sections of exercises. Brain U Lite and Brain U Online aren’t for teaching purpose. They don’t teach you how to use your brain’s capabilities, nothing like a brain training game. They are more like a therapy which uses new learning of brain that unleashes the areas of the brain.

This releases the neuroprotective chemicals which do not let the brain cortex shrink and slow down the cognitive impairment. Both the apps take into account visuals and hearing impairments. The person on the screen reads the exercise and also handwriting help and incorporating larger text.
