Smartphone as Prospective Memory Aids after Traumatic Brain Injury

Read article at Massey Research Online: MRO icon

Individuals living with traumatic brain injury commonly have difficulties with prospective memory (the ability to remember a planned action at the intended time). This can result in difficulties with day-to-day functioning and increased reliance on others. Ms Bos investigated the efficacy of a memory notebook and a smartphone as a memory aid for individuals with moderate to severe traumatic brain injury. The smartphone demonstrated benefits over and above those seen with the memory notebook. Ms Bos’s results suggest that smartphones have the potential to be a useful and cost effective tool in neurorehabilitation practice. Her results also inform clinicians about factors that may be important for successful implementation of smartphones as a neurorehabilitation tool.
