The Cognitive Systems Teletherapy System is an innovative Internet Enabled technology that provides a clinical approach to regeneration or “rewiring” of the neurological connectivity in the brain. These neuronal connections are critical to optimal functioning of cognitive processing of information, memory, problem-solving, decision-making, and sight and sound due to conditions. With unlimited access through the Internet, clients can interact with the clinically controlled cognitive activities in their homes or in clinical settings. The following conditions, that are brain-based, may be substantially improved through challenging exercises which provide cognitive stimulation through the Cognitive Systems Teletherapy System when appropriately administered by specially trained clinicians through dedicated computer units placed in the clients’ homes and connected to their designated therapists via the Internet:
- Traumatic Brain Injuries (mild, moderate, severe [with limited brain stem damage])
- Strokes (mild, moderate, severe [with limited brain stem damage]
- Hypoxia with cognitive impairment [with limited brain stem damage]
- Developmental Delays
- Learning Disabilities
- Brain Anomalies due to surgical or disease processes
- Dementia (mild to moderate)
- Short-term Memory Loss
- Long-term Memory Loss
- Personality Disorders including:
- low self-esteem
- schizophrenia (mild to moderate)
- lack of self-control
- Alcohol and Drug Abuse (drug free during rehab process)
- Low I.Q.
- Downs Syndrome
- Cerebral Palsy
- Multiple Sclerosis
Cognitive therapy is maximized when it is combined with other therapies that require physical conditioning, i.e., physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy. Also, to establish baseline data, it is highly recommended that neuropsychological testing is part of the overall cognitive therapy program.
The Cognitive Systems Teletherapy System can also help improve a person’s ability to process information more quickly and maximize his or her thinking skills. This is based on the concept that everyone has some cognitive deficits; however, the brain has the capacity to “work around” the deficit allowing the person to function but not optimally. Additional research has demonstrated that diet and exercise can help to accelerate the cognitive development process in the brain.
