Abstract

Mobility disabilities represent the most prevalent disability among seniors. Emerging evidence indicates that executive functions play an important role in maintaining mobility. However, the use of cognitive remediation programs to enhance mobility has not been investigated in a full-scale randomized control trial. The CREM study is a single-blind randomized control trial to examine the effect of computerized cognitive remediation versus computer-based health education training on mobility in 420 seniors. The primary outcome is change in gait speed during normal walking and walking-while-talking conditions from baseline to postintervention. Secondary outcomes are change in mobility, mobility-related cognitive processes and neuroplasticity. Results of this study will fill an important gap in the efficacy and feasibility of cognitive remediation to improve mobility in seniors.
