Abstract:
Significant demographic changes in developed countries in recent decades have reflected the worrying trend of an ageing population, including the Portuguese population. In light of this scenario, there is an urgent need to create solutions that help to mitigate the collateral effects of ageing. This paper describes the development of an occupational health component aimed at enabling technicians and specialists to define and personalize therapeutic intervention programs for cognitive rehabilitation and maintenance, specific to various types of cognitive disabilities. The occupational health component of Mind.Care is being developed under the TICE.Healthy project, whose main objective is to provide a range of activities for the cognitive stimulation, maintenance, monitoring and rehabilitation of the cognitive functions – memory, attention, language, executive functions, visual and special abilities – suited to different user profiles. In addition to the scientific framework, there is an emphasis on conceptual and development decisions, illustrated by the various stages of functional specification, with a definition of usability and accessibility guidelines, design and implementation. The work has a strong scientific foundation and has been developed with great care in terms of design and technological issues, with a view to making a significant contribution to healthy ageing.
