The Promentia team was the Grand Prize Winner in the Mental Health and Professional Burnout track. Promentia’s project was an Alzheimer’s Disease prevention app, also named Promentia, with the tagline “Stay You.”

The team’s main point is that people do not realize that Alzheimer’s Disease is a highly delayable disease. More and more people are finding out that they are at higher risk of Alzheimer’s Disease as the popularity of at home genome services continues to rise.

They created a mobile prototype deployed on a Samsung Galaxy Note 9, and showed how they could use Samsung’s technology to develop a way to digitally enable ‪Alzheimer’s disease prevention.‬‬

By monitoring the results from blood tests for six specific biomarkers scientifically proven to correlate to the onset of Alzheimer’s Disease (hsCRP, Homocysteine, Fasting insulin, Hemoglobin A1C, Fasting glucose, and Vitamin D), sleep, and exercise, the app tailors personalized feedback.
