Neofect Cognition: An Attention and Memory Training Tool

Neofect Cognition for Cognitive Training

ComCog is a brain re-training software that focuses on attention and cognition.

Cognitive training is essential for successful community living and independence in everyday life. This software has been shown to improve working memory for users with Alzheimer’s. ComCog has also helped patients with brain injuries increase their attention span. This June, as we acknowledge Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness month (https://www.alz.org/abam/), we’d like to introduce this new cognitive training software, Neofect Com/Cog.

cognitive training with ComCog


Cognitive training software ComCog has existed for a number of years in Asia but has only recently come to the US under the US rehabilitation technology brand, Neofect, the makers of the Smart Glove and other Smart Rehabilitation products.


cognitive training with ComCog

Com/cog uses computer assisted cognitive rehab along with Neofect’s learning algorithm to guide a user through cognitive training based on their skills. Cognitive skills refer to the intellectual activities that encompass memory, reasoning, attention and language. Damage to cognitive function can cause difficulties in ones’ daily life. Promoting brain neuroplasticity is a key element to the cognitive rehabilitation process after a brain injury. Neuroplasticity is a concept that states that the brain will essentially rewire itself to compensate for the area of injury or damage. Cognitive rehabilitation focuses on the importance of retraining the brain.

4-week cognitive training program using ComCog

After utilizing the ComCog software for a 4-week training period, patients with traumatic brain injury were shown to improve their attention to more closely resemble that of their healthy counterparts. This is due to the concept of neuroplasticity which says that the brain will rewire itself to work even when parts of it are injured..

In Alzheimer’s dementia patients, a 4-week cognitive training program using ComCog was shown to significantly increase memory capabilities. Patients were able to better remember words and objects that had been presented to them previously and scored higher on tests of orientation and recall.
