The new application to be developed by Netis Zrt. and SimnNest Aviation kft., named PreDEM, is going to screen the earliest, otherwise unnoticeable signs of dementia by using early screening methods, risk management tools assisted AI technology, smart games measuring cognitive abilities as well as eye-tracking diagnostic tools.
