We present the first electrostimulating medical device targeting brain structures responsible for memory consolidation. Cogniguard® is the first non-invasive home use electronic device dedicated specially for patients suffering from Alzheimer's disease to boost memory and make their life easier.
Cogniuguard therapy is first effective treatment for memory disorders ∗
∗ ongoing clinical trials show a significant improvement of memory parameters in more than 60% of cases with no significant side effects.
The treatment of memory disorders is one of the greatest challenges of modern medicine. It is estimated that the number of people affected by this problem globally amounts to nearly 50 million cases and annual costs of treatment exceeds 300 billions USD.
Memory disorders may take various forms ranging from mild cognitive impairment (MCI) to advanced dementia during Alzheimer's disease.
Memory disorders can occur at different ages and accompany other disease processes, a particular sample are memory disorders occurring after Covid-19 virus infection.
To date, modern medicine has not developed an effective method for the treatment of memory disorders.
Research efforts to develop an effective treatment for memory disorders have been ongoing for a long time, and many of the new therapies are in clinical trials.
One of the most promising and clinically effective is Cogniguard Therapy
Cogniguard Therapy is based on a method of neuromodulation of the brain through the vagus nerve. Vagus nerve stimulation has been used in clinical practice for over 25 years and is a safe and effective treatment method approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of epilepsy, depression, and migraine.
Our method uses non-invasive stimulation, i.e. transcutaneous stimulation ensuring high safety of treatment.
The Cogniguard device is dedicated for patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI), specially for patients with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia above 60 years old.
The Cogniguard device will be a pioneering solution on a global scale, introducing a new method of therapy delaying the development or reducing symptoms of the disease.
Cogniguard consists of a headband with a built-in neurostimulator. The device will be working in wireless bluetooth connection to personal mobile devices, what gives great opportunity to monitor treatment compliance.
