MEMO is an interactive telehealth platform based on the 'Making the Most of Your Memory Program'. In that original program, the clinicians would run face to face sessions with participant groups to equip them with memory strategies. As a result of the program, participants were able to meet their memory related goals, expand their memory capacity and experience more independent and confident lives.
Due to the recent pandemic, clinicians and patients are restricted from holding face-to-face meetings and some clinicians are now successfully running rehabilitation programs online using video-conferencing software. To date, however, these interventions have not taken advantage of the full gamut of digital tools available to supplement rehabilitation. In the digital age, we can do better!
Our company aims to develop an online memory rehabilitation platform, called MEMO (Making Everyday Memory Optimal), to benefit participants and clinicians. This program will provide a dedicated video-conferencing platform for supported, weekly group-based interactions, pre-session educational videos as well as engaging, strategy centred exercises with feedback to enhance improvements in everyday memory. Through collaboration with patients and clinicians, our aim is to redesign what rehabilitation looks like and use technology to bring memory rehabilitation into the digital age.
