“NouKNOW”, a Self-Check Tool for Brain Health

NouKNOW (non-medical device) is a tool that uses a simple card test using a PC, tablet or smartphone device to perform tests evaluating psychomotor function, attention, learning and memory, and working memory. The results screen displays quantified indicators of brain performance, such as “memorization”, “cognition”, and “decision”, along with lifestyle advice. This digital tool allows users to self-assess independently and in a short time frame (approx. 15 minutes), enabling regular assessments in instances such as daily life and health checkups.
