A system has been designed to help people with memory and organizational impairments perform daily living, vocational, or recreational tasks with greater independence. Veterans are susceptible to cognitive disabilities caused by brain injury or other conditions. This system provides scheduling assistance and task guidance on any device with an Internet connection and Web browser. A prototype has been developed that focuses on task guidance. In preliminary testing of the system, including simulated trials and monitored use of the prototype in a clinical setting, participants with brain injuries were able to respond to cues provided by the system and complete prescribed tasks.
