 digital medicines you want to take

 

Imagine therapy work that doesn't feel like work.

At Cognivive, we are making that happen. Our evidence-based cognitive treatments are delivered through commercial-quality video games to make therapy regimens people will want to come back to, over and over.

Imagine faster recovery with less effort.

Backed by decades of scientific research, Cognivive is building treatment games to ease the burden of stroke recovery. Our products will provide targeted stimulation to specific cognitive processes to help improve important brain functions. Patients can freely self-administer these therapies, potentially reducing recovery time and cost.

Imagine rehabilitation that's actually enjoyable.

Cognivive is working with patients and clinical professionals to create effective treatment games that are approachable and fun specifically for our target populations. We create age- and ability-appropriate designed games to maximize retention and benefit from their embedded cognitive treatments.
