NeuroPage is a reminder system that was developed by the father of a young man who suffered a brain injury and the young man’s neuropsychologist.


NeuroPage uses a simple pager worn by the person with the memory impairment to provide reminders of things to do and other information. The memory impaired person or a relative/carer provides a list of reminders that are entered on to computer (at the Oliver Zangwill Centre in Ely) and then this computer automatically sends out the message to the persons pager at the correct time.

The pager beeps or vibrates and the person receives their message, one button is pressed and the message can be read from the screen. Because the system is automatic, reminders can be sent out at any time of the day or night.


 



This simple system has been shown through extensive research to be effective in helping people with memory problems arising from a wide range of conditions.
