Abstract

This paper presents a novel cognitive intervention utilizing touchscreen tablet applications for self-training: TECH-'Tablet Enhancement of Cognition and Health' and examined its feasibility for older adults with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI). A single-blind randomized controlled trial was conducted and participants were allocated to TECH (experimental) or control group. This paper focuses only on the TECH group. Twenty-eight community-dwelling older adults with MCI (age range 65-87) participated in the TECH groups. Feasibility (adherence and satisfaction from the program) was high. Data collection is still ongoing to establish the effectiveness of TECH for people with MCI.
