Pompton Plains, New Jersey – Acuity Games, a leader in brain health assessment-based brain games for iOS, has unveiled an infographic titled “Preventing Dementia with Brain Health Assessment.” The infographic provides an overview of the impending global dementia epidemic, and presents brain health assessment as the key to dementia prevention.

The Infographic highlights six keys points:
* Brain health declines begins around age 27
* Longer lifespans will lead to a global dementia epidemic by 2050
* Over 50% of Alzheimer’s (the most common dementia) may be preventable
* Lifestyle choices impact the rate of brain health decline
* Measurement is crucial in fighting disease, but isn’t used to fight dementia
* Brain health assessment will lead to the lifestyle choices that prevent dementia

“All of the 1.5 billion people who will be at risk for dementia in 2050 are already 29 years of age or older, and have begun the brain health decline that can lead to dementia. If we’re going to prevent the looming global dementia epidemic, we have to act now,” said Dan Hansen, founder of Acuity Games. “Brain health assessment can nudge us into making the lifestyle choices that improve brain health and prevent dementia.”
