CLINICAL STUDIES

Cognuse is open to initiatives and inquiries for conducting clinical studies, scientific and research projects using our products and database.

ONGOING STUDIES 

Feasibility of using a novel and interactive computer program to assess emotional health after a stroke at University of Arizona Stroke Center.

This feasibility study is the first step in a larger study which is to evaluate the effects of the use of the interactive computer application Rehabilitation Platform for the Continuum of Care on post-stroke depression.  No study of this kind has neither been conducted in any stroke population nor in the community in which the study will take place. The purpose of this feasibility study is to evaluate the barriers and/or ease of recruiting community stroke survivors into a study that will use an interactive application to assess cognitive function and depression and the usability of the Cognuse interactive program from the perspective of stroke survivors.
