The use of computers as training tools is now well established in a growing number of fields. Space, aviation, and medicine are some of the areas where computer simulations have been useful. The use of computers as therapeutic tools is now finding a foothold in rehabilitation institutions. The Adaptive Cognitive Orthosis Shell (ACOS) is a computerized cognitive aid that will provide a set of instructions (subtasks) to guide a client (a trainee at work, or cognitively challenged person) in completing a task, thereby reducing that person's dependence on a supervisor or care-giver. The ACOS will also keep track of the response-times of the client for each subtask, and will adapt according to the client's performances by reducing or increasing the number of cues. The coding for ACOS is done in Visual C++, and the program itself is executed from Windows 95.
