Abstract

Thailand has an increasing number of elderly people. As a result, Aging society at present,and recently years will be going to agedsociety.Abnormalities to be followed with the elderly population is dementia. Dementia has long process and the largest cause of death in the elderly and effect to total carepeople in activities of daily living from otherand result to decreased quality of life of patients and families and economic cost problem. Current dementia can not cure. The most effective thing to do is to quickly diagnosis, provide quick treatment, cognitive intervention in pre-aging for return to normal cognitive in mild cognitive impairment phase before the disease progresses to mild dementia and reduce risk factor.Mobile Applications is alternative non phamaco treatment to stimulating brain function. This article aims to present mild cognitive impairment, use mobile applications cognitive training the brain onmild cognitive impairment, with comparable advantage between mobile application games and traditional gameson the speed of processing, accuracy, flexibility, convenience, cost and creativity in use. Mobile Applicationsavailable on both iOS and Android smartphones in Thailand 4.0. Conclusion Mobile applications have a number of advantages over traditional methods in almost every aspect, provided they are tailored to the needs of the user, as well as user readiness and reduce technology panic.
