“NouKNOW”, a Self-Check Tool for Brain Health

NouKNOW (non-medical device) is a tool that uses a simple card test using a PC, tablet or smartphone device to perform tests evaluating psychomotor function, attention, learning and memory, and working memory. The results screen displays quantified indicators of brain performance, such as “memorization”, “cognition”, and “decision”, along with lifestyle advice. This digital tool allows users to self-assess independently and in a short time frame (approx. 15 minutes), enabling regular assessments in instances such as daily life and health checkups. It has been adopted by a number of medical and research institutions, municipalities, corporations and universities. It is expected that use of this tool to perform regular self-checks of brain health will become an opportunity to help the generation currently in their prime working years to gain a correct understanding of brain health and diseases, as well as to reconsider daily lifestyle, greater preventive measures, and consultation with doctors and other healthcare professionals.
