Dakim expands distribution of dementia-fighting Dakim BrainFitness System to Canada

March 21, 2016

Requiring no mouse, keyboard or computer knowledge, the system offers original brain-building activities filled with colourful images, stories, and oldies film and music clips appropriate to senior audiences. Answers are given with the touch of a finger. Activities are updated every few days to sustain interest; self-adjusted for capabilities ranging from active users to early-stage Alzheimer's patients; and designed with the appearance and humour of a TV game show to keep users engaged for sustained use.

"For the last several years, we have focused our efforts to raise awareness about the benefits of Dakim BrainFitness on the U.S. market, but dementia and Alzheimer's are a worldwide problem," said Rick Sill, Vice President of Sales at Dakim. "Our relationship with Tock Tick will make the system available in Canada for the first time, helping families help loved ones who are facing or currently coping with cognitive decline."

"There is a reason that the Dakim system has taken the lead in the U.S. for senior-oriented brain fitness: it has all of the science-based exercises with none of the boredom. That is key because a program that won't be used can't be effective," said Scott Richards, CEO of Tock Tick. "This is an important new tool to fight the symptoms of dementia and Alzheimer's in Canada."
