PATHFINDER is an exercise for therapeutic brain capacity training.
The principle of the training is simple but challenging. The Program presents you with a path that you have to remember and repeat afterwards. In doing this the level of difficulty automatically adjusts to your individual performance, thus you are constantly challenged but never too much.

The exercise comes from the PC Program Fresh Minder 2 (www.freshminder.de) which has been designed together with therapists and the Department of Neuropsychology of the Institute of Psychology at the Albert-Ludwig-University in Freiburg, Germany.
Pathfinder has been newly developed and extended especially for the mobile platform.
The Pathfinder exercise has been optimized for the presentation on tablets and larger smart phones with 5 " or more, but it can be used with slight limitations of readability on smaller displays just as well.
The program saves your training results locally on your device. They remain there exclusively and will NOT be forwarded at all.
In case of errors you have the option to send an error log to the Fresh Minder-Vertrieb in order to contribute to the improvement of the program. This will only happen upon your explicit request. The content of the error log will be visible on your screen before sending it.
