A group of scientists and innovators over at University College London in the U.K. have developed a language therapy app that is designed to help stroke patients with reading difficulties to improve their command of language.
Available on the Apple App Store and Google Play, the 'iReadMore' app focuses on helping users read individual words. It offers different levels of difficulty, ensuring that users are challenged in a manner that helps them improve, without causing frustration or hurting their confidence. What's more, the app also offers feedback and reading tests so that users can be engaged with their progress.
It's common knowledge that language therapy and rehabilitation is vital to help stroke patients improve their quality of life, but the fact of the matter is that this sort of assistance can be difficult or expensive to organize, and can be ineffective if not properly guided. The 'iReadMore' language therapy app gets around this problem by helping to stimulate stroke patients' reading capabilities on a simple phone-based platform.
