Tech Beat: Yardi’s RENTCafé Reach, BrainHQ App Research

BrainHQ App Improves Brain Function in Senior Housing Community Population, Study Finds

A recent study of seniors living in assisted living and independent living communities revealed significant improvement in brain processing speed among those who used the BrainHQ web and mobile apps from Posit Science.

The study was published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society.


“Our findings have important implications for the care of older adults,” the researchers wrote. “They provide … support for the use of SOPT [Speed of Processing Training] with the generally older and less healthy adults in independent and assisted living, because SOPT benefits were not significantly different between these groups, and their outcomes were comparable with those of prior studies of younger, healthier older adults.”
