Research1 shows that the most effective therapy is personalized therapy.  Easily use your own media directly in your therapy regimen.


Cortex makes neurological therapy a daily reality by bringing therapy activities directly to your smartphone or tablet.

Nearly 1 in 5 Americans live with a CCSD

It’s time we make neurological therapy accessible to them all.

What is a CCSD?

Communication, cognition, or swallowing disorders (CCSDs) can result from a variety of medical incidents or diagnoses, such as a stroke, traumatic brain injury, or any type of dementia, like Alzheimer’s.  These disorders can be life-shattering for everyone involved, as they can greatly impede the individual’s ability to maintain healthy, independent lives.  Though the geriatric population is especially at risk, anyone can develop and suffer from a CCSD.


An Overwhelming Prevalence

Because CCSDs vary considerably, few realize just how widespread they truly are.

The Therapy Gap

Speech-Lanuage Pathologists (SLPs) are the medical professionals who provide treatment to individuals with CCSDs.  Unfortunately, they aren’t able to easily provide therapy resources given the abstract nature of neurological treatment.  This is especially true after the patient discharges from SLP services.  This inaccessibility can often lead to decline, which may result in rehospitilization or worse.  In fact, it is estimated that 20 percent of all patients re-admit to the hospital within the first 30 days from discharge. Cortex addresses these problems by providing neurological therapy activities right on your mobile device.
