Abstract

The authors introduce a computer-based cognitive assessment tool and two different types of training systems. CoCoMO is a new computer based cognitive assessment tool for middle-aged and old people in South Korea. CoCoTA is a computer-based cognitive training tool considering cultural aspects. E-CoRe is a new cognitive training platform in order to reinforce the coupling of human body and cognition. E-CoRe was built with a tangible tabletop interface with real tangible objects and computerized table. These cognitive rehabilitation systems were aimed to detect cognitive impairment in early time and improve cognitive function and gross motor skills of older adults by providing daily life training and by interacting with real tangible objects.
