    Project: Research project

    Project Details

    Description

    This project aims to develop and implement cost-effective screening for mild cognitive impairment, dementia and hearing loss for elderly in the community. The project team will develop a prototype with the automated cognitive screening test (dichotic digits recognition test and digits-in-noise recognition test). The prototype developed will be added to the existing pure-tone hearing screening test system as new modules. This screening tool will improve the quality of life in elderly and promote healthy aging, as well as prevent or delay cognitive decline.
