There is no cure, but reducing Alzheimer’s Risk is Possible

Mahalo develops digital cognitive health solutions that enable people to assess, monitor and strengthen their brain health to reduce the risk of Alzheimer's and other dementias. Our solutions are built on a digital platform, enabling convenient and remote cognitive testing from the privacy of home. Mahalo's approach is focused on preserving and strengthening cognitive health now as opposed to managing its decline later.

Our products are available to businesses, universities, researchers, and health organizations to provide to individuals.

The Science Behind Our Cognitive Health Program

The FINGER Study

The FINGER study (The Finnish Geriatric Intervention Study to Prevent Cognitive Impairment and Disability) was a multi-year study of 1,200 adults at risk for cognitive decline. People who engaged in a multi-domain lifestyle intervention, including diet, exercise, and cognitive training, demonstrated improved cognitive performance.

This landmark study provides strong scientific evidence that targeted intervention can positively impact cognition over time – even in people who are at risk for decline. The FINGER study has been adapted on a global scale, with clinical studies taking place in multiple countries. Read more about World Wide FINGERS.

The Mahalo Cognitive Health Program

Our Cognitive Health Program is modeled after the multi-domain intervention that was proven to be effective in the FINGER study. Six lifestyle-related domains are included in our program, all of which are considered modifiable risk factors for dementia and Alzheimer's.

The Science behind our Cognitive Assessments

Eye tracking reveals insights into cognitive function

We have developed a clinically-validated suite of cognitive assessments that leverage eye-tracking technology. These digital assessments, taken regularly and over time, can serve as an early detection tool for identifying cognitive changes early.

Our technology uses the groundbreaking research of renowned neuroscientist, Dr. Stuart Zola, whose breakthrough clinical study on Alzheimer's Disease showed that eye movements, tracked through a camera, reveal important data about the state of our cognitive health and its potential for decline in the future.

What do Mahalo's assessments measure?


Our assessments measure multiple cognitive domains (and the brain has many!) and provide a detailed report of one's cognitive condition.

Processing Speed

The rate at which you take in new information, reach judgment on it, and formulate a response. For example, seeing a car run a light and responding by slamming on the brakes.

Recognition Memory

The ability to recognize previously encountered events, objects, or people. When you see a face at a coffee shop and remember it’s the guy who sat behind you in high school geometry, that’s recognition memory.

Associative Learning

The process of learning the link between items and concepts. Some examples are learning a new coworker's name, or learning that the sound of a siren means an emergency vehicle is near.

Associative Memory

Related to Associative Learning, this is the ability to remember the relationship between items. For example, smelling smoke and knowing that something must be burning on the stove, or walking down your street and knowing that this is where you live.

Inhibition

Your ability to control your thoughts and actions. For example, not looking at your phone while you are getting important work done, or stopping yourself from eating that second slice of chocolate cake.

Attention

Your ability to process information.

Examples include listening to your partner in a restaurant while ignoring everyone else (selective attention), watching a movie (sustained attention), talking to a passenger while driving (divided attention), or reading a recipe and cooking a meal (alternating attention).

Executive Function

Your ability to get tasks done. Planning a vacation, organizing household items, switching your thoughts from one task on your to-do list to another are all examples of executive function.

Our Three Pillars of Brain Health

PILLAR 1

Assess

Evaluate current cognitive condition with Mahalo's digital assessments and eye-tracking technology to establish a baseline
PILLAR 2

Monitor

Take assessments regularly over time to monitor cognitive health and detect any changes.
PILLAR 3

Strengthen

Learn and incorporate targeted behaviors, like building quality sleep or brain training, that are clinically-proven to benefit cognitive health.

There is no cure, but you can reduce your risk


Currently, there is no cure for dementia-related diseases like Alzheimer's. Clinical trials in the past two decades have seen 146 failures with only 4 drugs approved for Alzheimer's treatment1. These FDA-approved drugs only treat the symptoms of the disease2. None of these drugs can slow or stop progression of the disease and symptoms often return over time.

So, what can you do?

It's not rocket science, but it is brain science. Mahalo invests in and leverages the latest neuroscience research to deliver convenient, digital solutions to help businesses and individuals better manage their cognitive health for customers and themselves.
