Product Background

MCI (mild cognitive impairment) and signs of early dementia are hard to detect; however, studies show that playing the piano has the ability to highlight even the slightest cognitive abnormalities.
Playing the piano involves multiple sensory processing, comprehension, quasi-simultaneous decision-making, and action execution. In short, it is a sure-fire way to analyze and evaluate brain functions and train minds. In order to test and prevent cognitive disorders, our client (a musician) came up with the idea of building a piano emulator from scratch.


In order to build a piano emulator app that could detect and calculate the probability of developing cognitive abnormalities associated with MCI and early-stage dementia, the emulator had to be:
  • Fast and accurate, with gamified cognitive checkups that fit the clinical workflow
  • Suitable for assessing pre-clinical, early dementia and MCI
  • Operable by a non-specialist

The app was released with the following features:

  • Visuospatial and motor encoding
  • Time-stamped finger responses
  • Audio cues
  • Integrated the tool for different PACS archives/VNAs compatibility
  • An algorithm that collects user-response and analyzes data
  • Integrations with EEG and eye-tracking
  • Recording history
  • Data export
  • GDPR and HIPAA compliance


This app evaluates executive functions, such as inhibition control, attention, multisensory memories, and various brain-region activities.
In this way, the software acts as a dementia prevention tool, contributing to remote care for cognitive monitoring. As for now, our client is looking for opportunities to collaborate with Philips as their headsets could enhance app performance and function.
This software is expected to launch as a medical device in the EU at any moment.
