Introduction: Global increment in the patients suffering from non-communicable diseases such as Alzheimer’s and varied Dementia conditions is a global burden and a great challenge for the healthcare systems. The standardized UMACE screening tool research directed finding solution to the problem and led to the development of ‘BrainNext”, 18 sets with 500+ memory and cognitive exercises (2011 - 2015). The exercises are in a form of laminated sheets, cloth and acrylic material, having external application and no side-effects or invasion; safe, durable, affordable and applicable to normal population < 10 years to find subtle cognitive deficit and neurology disabled population from 2.6 years to elderly, mild to severe conditions. “BrainNext” exercises encompass almost all cognitive functions that any human brain may perform, provides testing page in each Set.

Methods: Patient-centered Memory and Cognitive rehabilitation, systematic step-by-step 4 months program for N = 42 varied dementia profile patients, ages 33 to 84 years, Male = 25, Female = 17, using “BrainNext”, with hospital and caregiver support and appropriate time intervals based on “Synaptic Plasticity”. Varied dementia patient profiles, Alzheimer’s N = 04, Vascular N = 13, Parkinson’s N = 04, Age-related atrophy N = 13, Trauma, brain diseases induced memory loss N = 08 were treated. Patients had varied socio-economic, educational and cultural backgrounds. The caregiver and neuro-physiotherapists at the hospital were trained, covering 2 to 3 cognitive domains at a time as applicable, minimum 2 hours training a day at home and 1 hour at the hospital for first 2 weeks, later continued training at home and 3 follow-ups every 15 days, 2 follow-ups for 2 months then as required, adding new exercises each time for 4 months. To measure the progress, 1 to 10 rating scale was used, score1 as 10% and 10 as 100% recovery.

Results: Patients N = 23 with caregiver support and regular follow-up for 4 months improved memory, cognitive tasks and behavior in few weeks with 45% to 75% from the baseline condition, amongst 12 improved up-to caregiver’s satisfaction later needed few visits. Patients N = 19 with moderate caregiver support, intermittent gaps and irregular follow-up for 4 months improved memory, cognitive tasks and behavior with 25% to 45% from the baseline condition. “BrainNext” is National and Global award winning product for Neurorehabilitation Innovation and recognized by Indian Academy of Neurology and Govt. of India are safe, durable, easy to use, yield positive results for varied profiles of dementia, establishes evidence of no permeant memory loss in dementia and successfully reverts cognitive deficit up to 75% from baseline condition.
