Short description
The Alzheimer’s Disease Prediction Service (ADPS) employs an easy smartphone test to predict whether someone is likely to develop Alzheimer’s in the next six years, using data that has shown 94% accuracy. It will be one of the first validated solutions to enter the EU market as a pre-symptomatic biomarker to predict Alzheimer’s risk for people over 50. Current diagnostic measures of Alzheimer’s Disease are invasive, expensive and time-consuming, and thus have limited use as frontline screening tools. Although experts realise the potential of screening with virtual reality, augmented reality or activity tracking technologies, routine examination is only carried out after symptoms appear and brain damage is already done. Early screening enables prevention and could dramatically reduce future costs of dementia care. ADPS unites leading academic and industry partners with a focus on computational dementia diagnosis. It involves memory clinics specialsed in data on pre-symptomatic patients – in Dublin, Barcelona, Zurich, Lausanne and Amsterdam.
The practice/case/tool is “on the market” and integrated in routine use. There is proven market impact in terms of job creation/spin-off creation or other company growth
