About Altoida

A New Gold Standard in Brain Health with Precision Neurology

Why Altoida?

At Altoida, we are radically changing the standard for monitoring and managing brain health. Traditionally, understanding brain health involves old-school pencil and paper cognitive tests or highly invasive and expensive clinical procedures. Old-school memory tests and questionnaires lack the ecological validity required to truly understand brain health. Such testing methods are not designed to evaluate the cognitive and functional abilities required to execute real day-to-day tasks.

Altoida is developing a digital medical device to measure and analyze nearly 800 unique digital biomarkers associated with neurocognitive impairment. Our iOS- and Android-based activities are designed to feel like games, but simulate complex Activities of Daily Living to generate highly personalized measurements and provide a comprehensive and robust approach to monitoring brain health. With FDA Breakthrough Designation, we are implementing our innovative AI to assist in predicting the onset of neurological diseases, like Alzheimer’s. We envision our device and platform supporting a breadth of early neurological disease diagnoses.

Conventional methods for diagnosing neurological disease are expensive, invasive, and require significant time and resources. The very nature of such approaches to diagnosing Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia makes receiving a diagnosis inaccessible to many individuals, depriving them of the opportunity for early detection and early intervention and treatment.

Altoida's Precision Neurology platform and app-based device provide an easily accessible, cost-effective, and non-invasive method for assessing neurological disease.

Revolutionizing Brain Health

Today, our augmented reality platform delivers robust measurements of cognitive and functional brain health across 13 unique neurocognitive domains. Tomorrow, our platform and innovative artificial intelligence will power early Alzheimer’s disease identification.
