DementiaGuide Inc. this week introduced the beta version of its new interactive web-based tracking and management application for persons with dementia and their caregivers.
DementiaGuide Inc., a Halifax, Nova Scotia based company, is showcasing its website and web based symptom identification and tracking application, SymptomGuide™, during the International Conference on Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Disorders being held from July 15 to 20 in Madrid. Nearly 5000 researchers, 2000 oral and poster presentations and exhibitors are gathered for the conference.
Dr. Kenneth Rockwood, DementiaGuide president and CEO, said, "Over a decade of research and conversation with patients and their caregivers has been the foundation for WWW.DEMENTIAGUIDE.CA and SymptomGuide™, which aim to offer an easy to use resource about all aspects of dementia. "Rockwood, a geriatrician and researcher, continued, “SymptomGuide™ is the result of extensive development and design to meet our goal – comprehensive, current information about dementia, its symptoms, stages and treatments and an easy to use method of capturing an individual’s information and experience in a manner that could be stored and used by their caregivers and health professionals to track progress."
"Timeless Medical Systems is very pleased to have been selected to partner with DementiaGuide to develop and implement the SymptomGuide™ web application," stated John Rowe, vice president of sales and marketing. "Translating Dr. Rockwood’s extensive research into an intuitive web-based environment has been an exciting challenge for our team, and we are proud to have contributed to this innovation in the field of geriatric medicine."
Like many diseases, although much is known about dementia, each individual may have symptoms that are unique to them in their severity, when they occur and how they respond to treatment. SymptomGuide™ will give people a sense of empowerment at a time when they need it most. SymptomGuide™, currently in beta testing, is an innovative tool for persons with dementia and their caregivers to select and track symptoms over time. They will be able to create reports to assist them in describing how they are coping, and share this with their physicians and other family members. SymptomGuide™ will be launching publicly in October 2006.
