The global rise in cognitive health issues, notably dementia, has spurred Korean startup Silvia Health to forefront with its groundbreaking age-tech solution. Led by CEO Myung Jin Ko and CTO Jaemin Cheon, Silvia Health addresses the pressing challenges of cognitive decline through its Silvia platform—an advanced digital healthcare application emphasizing early detection, prevention, and management of cognitive health issues, particularly dementia.
CEO Ko’s personal journey sparked the creation of Silvia Health. Witnessing her grandmother’s struggle with cognitive decline, Ko was inspired to find innovative ways to alleviate the challenges faced by both patients and caregivers. The Silvia platform’s core focus is to equip individuals with tools and guidance for effective cognitive health management, particularly during the early stages of decline.
At the heart of the Silvia platform is an AI-powered system that assesses users’ mental health through voice analysis, offering insights into their emotional and cognitive states. By detecting early signs of cognitive decline, the platform empowers individuals to take proactive steps toward prevention and management. The platform’s unique feature lies in its personalized approach, tailoring cognitive function management content based on user profiles, including age and gender.
This personalized approach is backed by collaborations with cognitive psychology experts and clinical studies conducted in Korea and internationally. Beyond individual users, Silvia Health’s impact extends to institutions such as dementia care centers, university hospitals, and corporate organizations. Corporate partnerships with KT, Korea Elderly Association, and Hyundai Marine & Fire Insurance underline the platform’s scalability and relevance.
In governmental and public institutions, Silvia Health aligns with the growing emphasis on dementia prevention and management in national health policies. Its engagement in research projects supported by government agencies showcases the platform’s commitment to broader healthcare initiatives. Combining AI technology with clinical insights, Silvia Health aims to refine its interventions further and expand its impact on cognitive health.
