CAIDE Risk factor App

... assesses the Risk of getting Dementia within the next 20 Years

The “CAIDE Dementia Risk App (Cardiovascular risk factors, Aging and Incidence of DEmentia) has been developed in collaboration with Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm and is available in the App Store for a free download. The CAIDE App may be used on an iPhone or iPad and comes in two versions: one for physicians and one for individuals. It is available in five languages: German, French, Spanish, Russian, and English as default.

CAIDE supports prevention of dementia

After entering gender, date of birth, height and weight, cholesterol level, blood pressure, physical activity and years of education the App calculates the risk of getting dementia within the next 20 years. If the risk is in the normal range an orange bar appears. The bar is green if the risk is lower and red if it is higher than average. Then the physician should discuss preventive lifestyle interventions.

Professor Miia Kivipelto who has done the research on which the App is based says: “The biggest risk factor for developing dementia is advanced age. Large epidemiological studies have demonstrated that what is good for the heart is good for the brain – in other words a healthy lifestyle with physical activity, low blood cholesterol levels, not being obese, and having normal blood pressure at midlife protect not only against cardiac disease, but also against dementia.”
