After medical events such as a loss of consciousness, stroke, or injury to the head, doctors often need to measure a patient's cognitive function to identify any concerns and ensure a proper treatment plan is followed to restore the patient to health. CognoLizer is a system that both assesses a patient's cognitive function and helps medical professionals provide therapeutic treatment. Doctors are able to better understand their patients' functioning abilities, plan treatments, and generate reports that can be shown to other professionals if additional opinions are needed. Educators are able to use the online environment to provide their students with practical experience in diagnosis and treatment planning.
To complete activities in CognoLizer, the most common interface is similar to typing. Patients use a particular finger to select a corresponding key on the keyboard. Adaptations have been created and are available for patients who need to use a touchscreen, as well as for those who need verbal instruction instead of written instruction.
