Cognetivity Neurosciences well placed to help individuals and health services deal with unprecedented challenge of Covid-19 as global demand for telemedicine surges
VANCOUVER, April 1, 2020 /CNW/ – Cognetivity Neurosciences Ltd. (the “Company” or “Cognetivity”) (CSE: CGN; FWB: 1UB; OTCQB: CGNSF) is continuing to monitor the development of the Covid-19 pandemic worldwide and expects to be able to deliver its technology to mitigate the strain placed by the crisis on both healthcare services and self-isolating individuals. The company’s digital assessment capabilities are well matched to the burgeoning importance of telemedicine and telecare in the UK and beyond.
As the elderly are forced to self-isolate and mental health services are curbed in an effort to divert resources, waiting lists for dementia assessment services are forecast to multiply once the crisis is alleviated. The Integrated Cognitive Assessment (ICA), the company’s flagship product and CE-marked medical device software, offers the potential to curtail this backlog before and as it arises, with a 5-minute computerised test of cognitive function that is suitable for remote administration.
Cognetivity is also in conversation with potential customers regarding the use of its wellness app to enable self-monitoring for corporate employees and others whose cognitive and mental health is likely to be negatively affected by their isolation at home.
Hence, the company believes it is well placed to make a positive impact on society and encourage wider uptake of its technology, consistent with its long-standing goals, by empowering clinicians and isolated individuals to cope with the Covid-19 crisis.
All employees are currently working from home in accordance with guidance from the World Health Organization and national health authorities. Cognetivity has established robust practices in the use of remote-working technology to permit meetings to be held with colleagues, collaborators and clients. As such, it expects to continue delivery of its ongoing projects, including an Innovate UK-funded study of the ICA in clinical care at Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust. The company will regularly update its plans to ensure business continuity over the coming months.
Further updates will follow as necessary.
