This trial is evaluating whether iPACES (interactive Physical and Cognitive Exercise System) will improve 2 primary outcomes and 1 secondary outcome in patients with Dementia. Measurement will happen over the course of change from baseline to 6 months.
This trial requires 120 total participants across 2 different treatment groups
This trial involves 2 different treatments. IPACES (interactive Physical And Cognitive Exercise System) is the primary treatment being studied. Participants will all receive the same treatment. There is no placebo group. The treatments being tested are not being studied for commercial purposes.
"Cognitive decline and disability are linked via the path of Alzheimer. Although age is the most important factor in the development of cognitive decline, other risk factors are likely to be operative too, namely, substance abuse, genetics, cardiovascular disease, and traumatic brain injury." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Results from a recent paper provides further evidence that MCI is a clinically ndsign of cognitive decline. Furthermore, the occurrence of an nisolating symptom has positive repercussions for the progression of MCI." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Most people do not lose most of their cognitive function. In some cases this can be maintained with low-intensity cognitive training, and in others, this can be reduced and reversed by vigorous, intensive intervention. A meta-analysis of studies evaluating the effectiveness of intensive multimodal therapy for dementia patients is currently in progress." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"About 3.1 million people in the United States are diagnosed with some form of dementia annually. 1.3 million have Alzheimer's disease (AD). Half of all people who receive treatment for ADHD also have an underlying AD. About 0.6 million people in the United States have mild cognitive impairment (MCI) a year; about 2.5 million have mild AD a year. If a child has a parent who has AD or MCI, the child is likely to develop AD or dementia; if an parent has dementia, the child's risk increases threefold. If the child has the AD or dementia gene, the risk of AD or dementia doubles. About 0." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Cognitive decline is difficult to treat, though some treatments have been found to improve cognitive function. Specifically, cognitive training has shown to improve cognitive ability in Alzheimer's disease, and has been shown benefit in other diseases as well.\n" - Anonymous Online Contributor
"The majority of individuals age 50+ have a variety of cognitive impairments, including executive dysfunction, memory decline, and attention, executive control deficits. There is also an association between cognitive decline and a decreased quality of life." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Cognitive decline in late life is a common phenomenon that has negative implications regarding health. Due to our rapid aging society, we should develop a prevention for cognitive deterioration related to physical decline." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Participants who used the ipages for 6 months experienced a greater improvement in cognitive and functional abilities compared to participants in the control group undergoing similar intensity of exercise at baseline. The use of the ipages was found to be an effective, easy and safe method for the provision of exercise on AD, and improvements in several cognitive abilities were observed at the end of the study." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"The IPCS is a safe and feasible intervention for older adults with good adherence. More research is required to establish the optimum dosage and duration of intervention." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Iples may be a viable method to rehabilitate people with cognitive impairments. This could be achieved by integrating ipcles into rehabilitative procedures. Additional studies, with a larger sample size, should be conducted to examine the applicability of ipiles for this group of people." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"When all of the treatments were equally effective for relieving pain or improving physical functioning; however, IPES and IPES-only treatments were no more effective than a placebo for improving cognitive functioning in this study. Results from a recent paper indicate that further work is needed to identify which treatments (IPES or IPES only, or IPES-only-plus-IPES) are best suited for enhancing cognition." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Cognitive impairment is related to physical function and to the degree of mobility in older persons. Older people presenting to the general population with less severe cognitive impairment may have significant savings in time and, if left untreated, could be living an unaltered life with disability, compared with those with more serious impairment. We suggest using a multifactorial approach to the management of the elderly and limiting falls to the frail and very elderly in order to achieve maximal clinical benefit and to avoid undue morbidity as an inevitable consequence of the aging process." - Anonymous Online Contributor
