“At Savonix, we envision a world without dementia, where digital cognitive assessment solutions are used to routinely monitor and track individual health to ultimately prevent Alzheimer’s Disease,” said Dr. Mylea Charvat, CEO and founder of Savonix. “Our lead product Savonix Mobile administers a wide range of neurocognitive domain tests, including executive function as well as impulse control and different types of memory. Memory loss and impairment are often the symptom most people associate with Alzheimer’s Disease and other dementias, but screening for memory alone is not sufficient to identify risk and misses the early signs of dementia. Given that we know lifestyle factors play a vital role in the development of dementias, it is important that early detection and other cognitive screening solutions are multi-domain instead of single domain tests, to identify individuals when there is often still time to intervene and slow disease progression through lifestyle changes and behavior modification.”
Savonix will also be co-hosting “Preparing Us for a Cure,” a breakfast panel discussion with UsAgainstAlzheimer’s and other global leaders in brain health on Wednesday, July 17, 2019, from 8:00 am – 10:00 am. The event will discuss how the healthcare system can ready itself to deploy new interventions, treatment, and tools to build a brain healthy population, free from Alzheimer’s. The event will be held at the South Park Center, North Suite, 1150 S Olive Street, in Los Angeles, CA. Interested parties can register here: [email protected].
