We are Geras Solution AB (Company), a limited company from Sweden. Our headquarters are located in Stockholm, 115 22, Karlavägen 86.
You may have access to our services via one of our partners, for example an insurer, employer, nursing home, or other organisation (Partner). In such case, additional Terms may apply. Such responsibility will fall with our partners to provide such terms, if applicable, and you should check directly with them.
All of Geras Solutions’ services are available to you via our App, which consists of three modules.
- The Geras Clinic: users are able to create a profile, fill in a detailed medical history, complete a digital cognitive test, and engage in discussion, with a professional via mobile video chat consultation with both a nurse and physician, experts in dementia to receive an assessment of their cognitive health.
- The Geras Support: users who have received a diagnosis of dementia (via Geras or via another institution) have access to our disease management tools and have access for follow up consultation with our specialist who will monitor the state of their health carefully. Those caring for the patients also have access to support modules and knowledge resources.
- The Geras Risk Reduction: users are able to make use of tools to track their diet, social engagement and physical activities, while also having access to brain training games. Diet, social engagement, physical activity, and cognitive training have been scientifically proven to be key to both reducing both risk for and severity of dementia. You can find more information on this by reading the scientific note included in the “Geras App” section https://gerassolutions.com/geras-app/.
In addition to the App accessible by you as a user, we provide a web based back-office to the dementia specialists working with us. This is necessary for them to visualize your test results and be able to give you the most accurate assessment possible. This also provides them with a venue to schedule appointments and meet with patients via videochat.
It should be noted that we provide solely dementia care. Other medical conditions fall out of our service area.
We are CE marked as a Class I medical device. This means that we are a diagnosis support tool. As such, we are not legally allowed to provide a final diagnosis via our App alone. However, a doctor is able to make such a decision as we function as a decision-making tool for them. We are able to safely and effectively give an assessment of a user’s risk of developing or having developed dementia. In certain cases, we may need to refer the users to a physical consultation with the closest memory clinic or dementia specialist, in order for them to further ascertain and engage in intrusive diagnostic procedures, such as PET, lumbar puncture or blood samples. A final diagnosis may also be provided by such a referral to a specialist.
We cannot always prescribe dementia medication via remote consultation, but we can make a recommendation to the specialist to which users at high risk are referred to. This is completely dependent on the regulation, law and requirements within individual and separate countries.
When it comes to users’ medical data, we believe in complying strictly to all privacy regulation and will not disclose it to anybody, except to those specialists we refer to, or if legally required to do so.
Our App is available on Android and iOS devices. We recommend using a tablet device when using our App, as the bigger screen makes it easier to read the on-screen instructions. The App is, however, also available on mobile phone devices for those who prefer it. We support both iOS and Android devices, with some limitations. The oldest iOS version we support is iOS 9, while the oldest iPhone able to run our App is the iPhone 5 model. With regards to Android, we require devices to run Android 5.0 or newer.
You must have a good Internet connection in order to have an effective interaction with our Practitioners. For safety and privacy reasons, we strongly suggest you don’t use a public wireless network to access the App, opting for a personal WI-FI connection instead.
Updates for the App will be occasionally and constantly made available. We suggest always updating to the latest version of the App via the Apple or Google Play stores.
Regulation of our services
Our services are only available to adults concerned about their cognitive health, family members and to carers of people living with dementia.
We operate in different countries. When accessing our services in one of the particular countries we operate in, you are receiving services delivered from that same country. For example, if you are using our App in Sweden, the Practitioner you will be interacting will be licensed to practice in Sweden, and will be physically located in Sweden. As such, our services are regulated by each country of operation’s medical device regulatory body. In Sweden, this is the Swedish Medical Product Agency (Läkemedelsverket). Other examples would be China, which is regulated by the Chinese Food and Drug Administration. In the USA, the Food and Drug Administration would regulate such a product.
As mentioned above, we are not always able to give a final diagnosis at this stage of development. We are, however, confident in assessing one’s risk for dementia. In case one our users will be considered at risk of having developed or developing dementia, they will be referred to a “physical” dementia specialist, to obtain a final diagnosis.
Our goal is to provide a dementia diagnosis to those in need of it as quickly and conveniently as possible, and we will be therefore referring to the memory clinic or dementia specialist closest to the users. Memory clinics we will be referring to, may be our Partners. We will, however, always give the option to the users to have a say in where they are going to be referred.
Limits to our service
We cannot guarantee the availability of any particular or specific Practitioner working for us. They are the ones setting their own availability and there may be at times be various specialists that a patient will meet.
Consultations are mainly to be limited to 15 – 20 minutes. There may, however, be situations arising that require more or less time.
Please keep in mind that different Practitioners may have different opinions regarding one’s condition. Should you happen to have doubts, or feel like you want a second opinion after a consultation with one of our Practitioners, you are encouraged to either get in touch with a different Practitioner working for us, or to any other healthcare provider.

We may ask you for certain personal details and information in order to access our services. If you do not wish to provide us with those details, it may not be possible for us to provide you with our services.
