A new app could help prevent the onset of Alzheimer’s disease, according to research unveiled last week.
The Gray Matters app, developed by Ulster University in the UK and Utah State University in the US, encourages users to set lifestyle goals, ranging from exercise and nutrition to stress management and brain stimulation – all of which are known to have an impact on the onset and progression of Alzheimer’s disease.
People can use the app to track their lifestyle across a range of areas, including diet, physical activity, mental wellbeing and social engagement. It also provides visual progress reports to help users be more aware of their general health and encourage healthy behavioural change, as well as daily facts on the link between a healthy lifestyle and improved cognitive health.
