Cognitive training to preserve the mental abilities of your residents

You know the problem: after moving into a care facility, residents often mentally decline because they no longer have to do familiar activities such as planning and preparing lunch, shopping or gardening. The loss of these activities can often not be fully compensated by everyday companions and employment offers. Some activities that require handling in the kitchen are not feasible, for example, due to hygiene protection regulations, risk of injury or simply lack of time.

This is where we come in with our teora mind software application. It is a software application that uses virtual reality to simulate realistic situations in a playful way. The focus is on activities of daily living (ADL). In various scenarios, your residents can practice making coffee, organizing the refrigerator or gardening, for example. This gives residents the opportunity to deal with situations they used to encounter on a daily basis in a safe environment.

Cognitive Training and Mild Cognitive Impairment.

teora mind is a medical device certified in accordance with the MDR. It is approved for the treatment of cognitive deficits in Mild Cognitive Impairment, Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, among others. In particular, teora mind can be used in the early stages of these neurological diseases. The basic idea behind this is to counteract or slow down the deterioration of cognitive abilities through targeted, everyday-based training and to enable those affected to live (as far as possible) independently for as long as possible.

Cognitive training for rehabilitation purposes in short-term care

The medical device teora mind is already being used in some clinics for rehabilitation. If you admit residents in short-term care who have been discharged from inpatient rehabilitation but still need outpatient support to regain their full cognitive abilities, you can also use teora mind.

More information

In ourbrochure you will find all information summarized at a glance. Feel free to share them with residents and their families.


What does teora mind cost?


The costs of our application vary depending on the number of VR glasses required and the contract term, among other things. Please contact us for more information.

Does virtual reality therapy have side effects?


When first using virtual reality, some people report mild nausea, mild headaches or mild dizziness. These symptoms are also called motion sickness. They sometimes occur when the vestibular organ and the eyes report two different signals to the brain. For example, the balance system "says" "We are not moving - we are sitting" and the eyes report "We are riding a roller coaster and moving forward very fast." This conflict between the eyes and the organ of balance can cause "confusion" in the brain and lead to nausea, dizziness or headaches.
To minimize the risk of motion sickness, we take care in each of our applications not to create conflicting signals between the eyes and the vestibular organ.
More detailed information about side effects can be found here in the Health and Safety Warnings of the VR headset manufacturer.
