About the Study:

The Alzheimer's Disease Discovery Study (ASSIST) digitally collects cognitive and health data from up to 400,000 individuals to create a patient registry that will drive improved pre-clinical risk determination and prediction for

Alzheimer's and other dementias.


The study will ask people to donate their health data including smoking, alcohol intake, diet, and exercise combined with direct measurements of daily behavior from their digital devices including sleep, heart rate variability, exercise, blood glucose levels, and other critical bio and psycho-social markers.

Purpose:

ASSIST will lay the foundation for a population-level understanding of both normal cognition and cognitive decline across the age span as well as the important modifiable risk factors that can lead to dementia. Our aim is to generate data, on an unprecedented scale, to assist researchers, universities, biotech and pharma companies in the fight

to better understand individual differences that hold the key to treatment, prevention, and ultimately the elusive cure for Alzheimer's disease.

The ASSIST study takes about 45 minutes to complete. You are asked to review and sign a consent form, followed by a short questionnaire about your current and prior health conditions.


After you provide consent, the study will direct you to register for the test link. You will download the Savonix Mobile app to take the test on an Android™ smart device such as a tablet or phone, or an Apple® device such as an iPad® or iPhone®. Savonix Mobile will also ask you to share your Health App data, (for iPhone® user only) including body measurements and your health habits such as exercise, nutrition, and sleep. Take the Savonix test when you have time and are in a quiet space. It will measure your cognitive abilities in terms of reaction time, ability to remember numbers, words, and pictures, and to think flexibly.


At the end of the test, you can view your result on the Savonix Mobile app. One year after your initial test we will contact you and provide a link to re-test. You will then receive a report of your individual cognitive results compared to other study participants. The study also allows you the option of retesting in the future to see how your cognition changes over time.
