The Karman Line is the first set of games based on a number of proven effective treatment-compensation strategies, which are used in cognitive rehabilitation to improve everyday functioning within different cognitive domains.
The Karman Line is distinctive because it not only focuses on improving specific cognitive functions (such as memory) but on improving functioning in daily life. This "switch" from function recovery to the application of compensation strategies to achieve better everyday functioning was already used years ago in the clinical practice of rehabilitation. Strikingly enough, games often fall short in this area, because they are still focusing too much on improving function (with very poor or unproven effect on daily functioning).
The Karman Line is the first set of games based on a number of proven effective treatment-compensation strategies that are used in the cognitive rehabilitation rehabilitation to improve everyday functioning within various cognitive domains (such as attention and planning skills). By translating these treatment protocols into games, people can train their brains and cognitive functions in an attractive and challenging way. In addition to this "everyday" use, the games can also be used as a supplement to treatment in cognitive rehabilitation.
