Head device reduces memory loss in 7 out of 8 people
🔬🧠Recent research involving eight Alzheimer’s patients found that a new wearable device emitting electromagnetic impulses was able to significantly improve memory loss in seven of these participants within two months.🧠🔬
Researchers worked with the participants with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease and their caretakers. The participants wore the device twice a day for two months, with each session lasting one hour.
At the end of the two months, none of the participants had experienced any side effects. The investigators also used The Alzheimer’s Disease Assessment Scale-Cognitive Subscale test (ADAS-cog), the most widely recognized method of assessing cognitive function. It was found that seven of the eight participants saw an increase of over 4 points in cognitive performance on the ADAS-cog scale after two months. According to the researchers, it is as if the participants’ cognitive function had “rejuvenated” by a year.
While far more research is needed regarding the device, scientists are encouraged by these preliminary findings. It is reported that another trial is due to last around 17 months, on average, and will include about 150 participants with a diagnosis of mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease. The findings from this study have been published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease.
