WE KNOW HOW TO ASSESS RISK

RISK IS UNCERTAIN AND CHANGES THROUGHOUT THE LIFESPAN. WE DON'T BELIEVE IN THE VALUE OF ASSESSING A PARTICIPANT'S RISK AT A PARTICULAR MOMENT IN TIME. INSTEAD, OUR RISK ASSESSMENT REFLECTS RISK ACROSS THEIR REMAINING LIFETIME

OUR APPROACH

WHAT CAUSES DEMENTIA?

 

A HETEROGENOUS MIX OF FACTORS  

 RISK TRACKS

BrainSpa TM has organized a growing body of evidence for the various factors that increase or decrease a participant's susceptibility to cognitive loss or dementia . This disparate array of factors has been logicaly organized into an ontology that makes risks understandable, meaningful, and actionable

SURVEY-GENETIC-CLINICAL 

dynamic CAPABILITIEs

Risk for cognitive loss is non-absolute. What's absolute is that any provider may debate our interpretation of what the evidence shows regarding risk. For this reason,  BrainSpa intends to offer providers the flexibility of customizing our model parameters to reflect their views of what the evidence supports for participant's under their care

three pronged data capture

Data points for participant risk are captured utilizing three sources to ensure a comprehensive assessment of risk. A digital survey is the starting point to capture the participant's personal, medical and family histories. This initial assessment of risk is enhanced with optional genetic and clinical lab assessments 

ADJUSTABLE MODEL INPUTS AND PARAMETERS

open for input

Open to peer communities. Our risk assessment application allows for contributions from scientific and medical peers. Providers may submit their own model parameters, powered by published or non-published data for reveiw by their peers

WHAT WE OVERCOME

A DISCONNECTED EXPERIENCE 

THE PROBLEM

Current state of the art risk assessments rarely assess more than one domain of risk and do not present results in an understandable, meaningful or actionable way

GENETIC TESTING

YOU TESTED POSITIVE

YOU TESTED NEGATIVE

Positive is good, right?

Negative is bad, right?

"No not really, sorry about the news. Please take a brochure."

CLINICAL TESTING

"No, you are in the clear! Oops, forget to mention your poor diet"

YOU HAVe met syndrome

don't have met syndrome

Ok, now what? 

Ok, now what?

"Sorry about the news, here are several prescriptions."

HISTORY

"No, you are in the clear! Oops, forget to mention your high BMI."

Now what?

YOU ARE HIGH RISK

Now what?

YOU ARE LOW RISK

Now what?

"Sorry about the news. Read this blog and try to live healthier."

"Your in the clear. Carry on as usual."

CURRENT STATE OF THE ART IS DISCONNECTED

BRAINSPA IS COMPREHENSIVE

OUR APPROACH

SURVEY OF

TESTING

GENETIC

TESTING

Comprehensive assessment of risk considers inherited as well as non-inherited factors.  For this reason, BrainSpa includes genetic testing and lab testing along with a comprehensive understanding of each participant's historical exposures to non-inherited hazards

FOR A PARTICPANT'S RISK TO BE UNDERSTANDABLE, RISKS MUST BE PRESENTED ALONG THE CONTINUUM OF THEIR LIFESPAN AND RELATIVE TO THE OVERALL RISKS OF THE POPULATION

RISK IS MEANINGFUL AND ACTIONABLE WHEN YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT IS IN AND OUT OF YOUR CONTROL
