Californian digital health startup Neurotrack is on a mission to transform the diagnosis and prevention of memory loss and related diseases like Alzheimer’s. The company's flagship product is the Imprint™ Check-Up, a 5-minute assessment that uses eye-tracking technology to assess cognitive decline before symptoms appear. The early diagnosis of memory loss is critical for prevention of cognitive decline and this assessment is the only tool that can predict memory loss before it starts. In addition, Neurotrack offers a Cognitive Health Program that provides users with tools and advice to make lifestyle changes scientifically proven to reduce the risk of cognitive decline and diseases like Alzheimer’s.
Alzheimer’s disease is the greatest healthcare challenge of our generation. Worldwide, nearly 47 million people have Alzheimer’s or a related dementia and this number will triple by 2050. The global cost of Alzheimer’s and dementia is estimated to be $605 billion, which is equivalent to 1% of the entire world’s gross domestic product. Unfortunately, there are no disease-modifying drugs approved for Alzheimer’s to date.
At Neurotrack they believe cognitive decline and Alzheimer's disease can be prevented and there is a solution: (1) identify people early in the disease progression and (2) prescribe a digital cognitive health program focused on diet, exercise, and cognitive training to prevent the onset of Alzheimer’s disease.
