What is cognitive impairment?
Causes and symptomps
After a stroke or a head trauma, the brain can be damaged in different ways. Such damage can cause cognitive dysfunction, an expression which refers to the impairment of those skills that our brain uses to effectively navigate the world.
These skills are sometimes in place without us even noticing: think for example when we simply follow the course of an action unfolding in front of us.
Other times, they require some conscious effort from our part - such as when we try to remember what we had yesterday for lunch – or be really quite complex, such as when we have to plan something by taking many small decisions to coordinate the course of our actions. After a stroke or brain injury, all of these cognitive skills can be impaired to a different degree.
Different kind of cognitive impairments can also happen in certain portions of the neurodevelopmental disorders spectrum (think attention in ADHD) and in neurodegenerative diseases.
There is no such thing as “the perfect recipe" to treat cognitive impairments. Planning an effective therapeutic intervention requires a careful assessment of what caused the impairment, its characteristics, and the patient’s situation - including other health conditions.
In general, therapies that don’t involve the use of drugs aim at reducing the impairment. and/or slowing down further decline.
Rehabilitation usually stresses the importance of the recovery of every day functions - a goal that often benefits from activities that stimulate the brain on specific cognitive functions (memory, planning, speaking, paying attention to external stimuli etc.)
In MindLensens Professional, such stimulation is carried out with special videogames designed to tap on specific functions, and made more effective with a brain plasticity-boosting neuromodulation protocol.

Frequently asked questions
Questo dipende da tantissimi fattori, come la gravità del deficit cognitivo, l’evento o la patologia che lo ha causato, l’età e le caratteristiche personali.
In generale, molti pazienti beneficiano da un trattamento con MindLenses. Il tuo medico o specialista di fiducia saprà indicarti la terapia più indicata.
Neuromodulation is a technique used in the rehabilitation and treatment of cognitive and psychiatric disorders, which consists in “perturbing” the activity of the neurons of our brain through specialized instrumentation.
In our case, this instrumentation consists in a pair of prismatic lenses. Neuromodulation using prismatic lenses is non-invasive because it does not involve the use of external factors such as electrodes or magnets directly in contact with the patient’s body (which occurs in other neuromodulation techniques, such as tDCS).
Neuromodulation through prismatic adaptation is completely painless.
The neuronal “perturbation” effect obtained with the prismatic lenses is calibrated to bring the brain into a more “reactive” state for the limited period of time to conducting behavioral therapy.
MindLenses è un dispositivo medico di Classe I progettato proprio per i disturbi cognitivi post-ictus.
Come sempre, la decisione di intraprendere una terapia dipende da molti fattori, e va sempre concordata con il tuo specialista di riferimento.
Sì, a partire dall’età scolare. MindLenses è indicato per accompagnare una terapia per il trattamento dell’ADHD.
È possibile che qualche specialista non sia ancora informato dell’esistenza di MindLenses.
MindLenses è infatti uno strumento nuovo, anche se già utilizzato nei centri di neuroriabilitazione più avanzati in Italia, come l’IRCCS Fondazione Santa Lucia di Roma e l’IRCCS San Camillo di Venezia.
