South Korea, like many other industrialized nations around the globe, suffers from a rapidly aging population. Around 6.5 million out of the country’s 50 million population were 65 years or older in 2016. In the next 10 years, one out of five South Koreans will be retired, according to a Statistics Korea report in December 2016. As this population ages, CogniFit brain fitness solutions can help people maintain their brain health and better manage their cognitive function. It can also help users with memory, attention, coordination, perception, and reasoning. CogniFit cognitive assessments and brain training programs have been validated by the scientific community and independent universities around the world.

Education is highly regarded in South Korean culture and is perceived as the means to climb up the socio-economic ladder. The schools a child attends can determine everything from social status to job opportunity. South Korean parents spend more on education (15% of their gross national product) than any other nation in the world. The country is a leader in leveraging technology in the classroom, by implementing devices such as tablets, LCD blackboards, and other high-tech products  with an educational component that reflect the ever-changing technology market, like the CogniFit for Education platform.  This digital platform includes a neurocognitive assessment and brain training program designed to help teachers assess, train, and track students’ cognitive progress through intelligent brain games. The program works by identifying the students’ strongest and weakest cognitive skills, and help improve those in need over time.
