Questionnaires or computer-based tests for assessing activities of daily living are well-known approaches to screen for mild cognitive impairment (MCI). However, questionnaires are subjective and computerized tests only collect simple performance data with conventional input devices such as a mouse and keyboard. This project explored the validity and discriminative power of a virtual daily living test as a new diagnostic approach to assess MCI.




  • Reviewed existing measures for early dementia screening
  • Built 3D CAVE (Cave Automatic Virtual Environment) system to assess activities of daily living
  • Identified key kinematic markers that characterize the early onset of dementia
  • Tools: Immersive virtual reality, kinematic analysis and visualization, classification of early dementia
