Stroke and dementia patients often show symptoms of being unable to name objects around the house. More importantly, they can struggle to recognise their own friends and relatives. With tablet use increasing in the elderly generation, and AI solutions becoming more readily available, we can begin to design apps that are able to alleviate these symptoms.

RESPOND utilises this technology, allowing a patient to take a photo using their mobile device and then feeding back to the user what or who that is. This feedback can either be by text or voice. To add to this, the user interface has been specifically designed with the elderly in mind, ensuring that it is both simple to use but capable of performing complex AI tasks.

Since development, RESPOND has placed as a finalist in both European and Global tech competitions as well as being accepted onto the medical technology accelerator HS. Build.
