PerkUp aids in improving your cognitive functions through use of games, especially designed to boost the cognitive functions of the brain that suffers or get impaired due to mental disorders. PerkUp paces the learning by being relatable and fun to play. Our only aim is to contribute in quick recovery of people who undergo such reduction in mental ability.
