Towards an easier dementia diagnosis – digitally

Dear Sir or Madam,

The majority of neurodegenerative diseases is not diagnosed at all today. Cognitive changes are often pinned on aging, people do not dare to seek a physician’s help because of this, or their problems are too unclear for diagnosis. The Swedish company Geras Solutions AB has now digitalized early test methods to make diagnostics more accessible. Read more about this in our current interview.

Stay healthy!

This is why we need to consider how we can reconcile the necessary safety in medical technology with issues of sustainability.
