Introduction of new paradigm where patients are rewarded by sharing their research data would facilitate large scale screening and gathering of big data on prevention.
AlzheimerChain connects novel Fin-tech industry with screening and preventive initiatives and brain disease research to offer alternative to existing, frequently inefficient ways of Alzheimer's disease research funding. Bridging these areas offers many synergies and brings new opportunities for both fields.
AlzheimerChain main components
AlzheimerChain project consists from following principal components:
AlzheimerChain application
Will focus on screening test, verbal tests, questionnaires, artificial intelligence mainly in evaluation of MRI, physical activity and cognitive training. Blockchain technology will be used for recording and storing data. Application will be available in both mobile and PC version.
Terrapino mobile app
