How Can iPAD Help with Brain Disorder...?

Re-directed article fully quoted as follows:
"... A “brain training” game improves the cognitive function of people with schizophrenia and facilitates everyday tasks, according to researchers at the University of Cambridge.
Wizard, which will now be available on iOS (Apple’s operating system) as part of the Peak app, was tested for four weeks by 22 participants with a schizophrenia diagnosis.
"... Schizophrenia is a long-term mental health condition which can contribute to behavioural changes, confused thinking, apathy and, in some cases, delusions or hallucinations.
People with schizophrenia may experience cognitive impairments, including poor episodic memory, which affects remembering things such as times and dates, and understanding context.
"... Wizard aims to improve the cognitive functionality and episodic memory of people with schizophrenia, with in-game tasks including users moving through rooms and identifying items in boxes and character locations.
"... Professor Barbara Sahakian, who developed the game alongside Tom Piercy at Cambridge, said: “We need a way of treating the cognitive symptoms of schizophrenia, such as problems with episodic memory, but slow progress is being made towards developing a drug treatment. So this proof-of-concept study is important because it demonstrates that the memory game can help where drugs have so far failed.
"... “Because the game is interesting, even those patients with a general lack of motivation are spurred on to continue the training.”
"... Another member of the research team, Peter Jones, added that further studies with larger sample sizes would need to be carried out to confirm the current findings, but that: “in conjunction with medication and current psychological therapies, [Wizard] could help people with schizophrenia minimise the impact of their illness on everyday life.” (Hannah Jane Parkinson. Aug 3, 2015. HERE) ..."
Brain training app could help people with schizophrenia - Yahoo News Canada: "Importantly, the patients also said they enjoyed the game and were motivated to play it across the eight hours of cognitive training. The researchers said this was important, since lack of motivation is a common feature of schizophrenia.

We haven't tested this App. If a person is schizophrenic, he often doesn't know it. And this App probably will become the most referred App in the world, because everyone will see its importance as it applies to "someone else," such as a relative, a friend, or a friend of a friend. Lord help us.

In our humble opinion, if you are sensitive or actually have a condition that inhibits your everyday activity, you might be interested in how "technology" can help you in your journeys.

It so happens that we noticed a long time ago that the computer age was developed by an elite class of journeymen scientists and politicians. We saw very little being done to make, for instance, the QWERTY keyboard more suited to those who cannot type. Any individual might not be able to type because they have no fingers, or because they have no cognitive engine. It is obvious that little to nothing has been done to make the Internet accessible for seeing impaired people, or for hearing impaired, or for speech impaired... and so on.

The biggest draw on the Internet is "Ridiculousness" ... that's right. The act of turning every effort into a monstrous exhibition of chaotic cacophonous rancor ... either via youTube, Social Media, or pornography. This is the aspect of the Internet that turns off the "older generation." Until Generation Jones is no longer the majority, Internet will suffer in areas of control and legislation.

If just one half-wit today realizes how useless the Internet is for those who cannot merge on the highway of information, due to personal infirmity, something could be done.
