About

As part of Phase II of the NIH SBIR grant, the study will conduct a randomized controlled clinical trial in which the MapHabit system's gamification is investigated to determine whether the assistive technology facilitates user engagement and retention. Additionally, the study will examine if the gamified software improves the quality of life of persons with dementia and reduce the burden of the respective care partners. Participants will be individuals with Alzheimer's disease or related dementias in mild to moderate stage of cognitive impairment, in tandem with their respective care partner (i.e., primary familial caregiver). The study will be a randomized controlled clinical trial, in which three conditions will be investigated: 1) experimental condition in which MHS+G is implemented into the daily care received by participants 2) control condition in which the MHS alone is incorporated into the participant's daily care 3) exploratory condition where virtual reality gamification is incorporated into the MHS+G experience. The sample size will be a total of 40 individual-caregiver dyads, 20 in each condition-5 of the 20 subjects in the experimental condition will be included in exploratory condition. The study duration will be a 6-month intervention.

Gamified Intervention
Experimental group
Description:
This condition will involve the implementation of an assistive technology software (named the MapHabit system) with added gamification features into the daily care of individuals with mild to moderate stage of dementia. The MapHabit System (MHS) is a commercially available visual mapping software application that utilize visual, audio, and text media to create step-by-step visual guides to assist individuals and their caregivers in structuring and accomplishing activities of daily living (ADLs). The application will be made available to families through compatible tablets.
Treatment:
Device: The MapHabit system
Non-gamified Intervention
Active Comparator group
Description:
This control condition acted as the active comparator to the experimental condition. The same assistive technology, the MapHabit system, will be given to a separate group of participants. The difference here will be that the software will be a version that does not include gamification features.
Treatment:
Device: The MapHabit system
Exploratory Intervention
Other group
Description:
The exploratory condition will be given the same MHS version as the active comparator (control condition). However, for this group, participants will also engage in virtual reality games throughout the duration of the study. These virtual reality games are integrated with the MHS and includes cognitive games revolving around mental acuity, motor skills, etc.
