The CR-Psychiatry Program
The Cognitive Remediation in Psychiatry Program provides a specific methodology for cognitive stimulation, which proved to be efficient in the treatment of schizophrenia and depression. The program comprises a set of specific exercises with pre-defined levels and sequences. The program was designed in partnership with Dr. Pascal Vianin from Lausanne Hospital in Switzerland and Pr Roland Jouvent La Pitié Salpétrière Hospital, Paris, France.
The CR-Psychiatry Program's exercises were shown to be clinically effective in the RECOS Method of Psychiatry Department of Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Vaudois (DP-CHUV) in Lausanne, Switzerland.

Sample of detailed control panel for selecting difficulty level
- Patient progression rules
- Each exercise has 10 pre-defined challenge levels
- The patient starts each exercise at level one.
- With two successful exercise results (100% accuracy) at one level, the patient graduates to the next level.
- Clinician has detailed views to the patient's progression through the program.
- Graphically view the patient activity level and progression achievement level for each targeted cognitive exercise.
Once you have selected your patient, you can see his/her results.
