Primary Outcome Measures:
  • the five-point Likert scales for satisfaction and compliance [ Time Frame: after 4-weeks treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To evaluate the feasibility of the U-SMART, the five-point Likert scales for satisfaction and compliance were applied to all participants.

  • Word List Memory Test of the CERAD Neuropsychological Assessment Battery [ Time Frame: after 4-weeks treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To evaluate the efficacy of the U-SMART, the Word List Memory Test (WLMT) of the CERAD neuropsychological assessment battery was applied to all participants.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE) [ Time Frame: after 4-weeks treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Device: U-SMART
4-weeks' training

Detailed Description:

The Spaced Retrieval-based Memory Advancement and Rehabilitation Training (SMART) which consisted of 24 one-hour face-to-face sessions (Lee, Park et al. 2009) was developed based on the spaced retrieval training (SRT), which was effective in improving memory retention span of very mild to mild Alzheimer's disease patients. The Ubiquitous SMART (U-SMART) by transforming the current SMART to a self-administered program using an application working on IPAD was developed, and was examined its feasibility and efficacy in the elderly individuals with mild cognitive impairment.
