SMARTfit® has designed a range of cognitive-motor training programs which can integrate into memory care programs in senior living communities, assisted living facilities, and dedicated memory care facilities.
Brain research continues to confirm the concept of neuroplasticity, the brain’s ability to change and adapt, even rewire itself, when challenged to do so regardless of age. Science is also confirming that dual tasking, the combination of cognitive and motor training that simultaneously engages the motor system and simultaneous cognitive tasks, creates better results than doing either exercise or cognitive training alone.
In addition to improving cognitive performance, combining cognitive training and exercise together can encourage healthy brain structure and function. Certain neurotransmitters are released during tasks that are particularly engaging and novel, combining with the beneficial neurotransmitters released during exercise to create a “brain-healthy cocktail” of chemicals that accelerate neuroplasticity, encourage healthy brain function, and can create improved outcomes in mood and physical performance.
Building lifelong vitality in both brain & body.
Engaging balance and dementia prevention activities for senior living communities.
Increasing cognitive ability.
Balance, general, and cognitive fitness for older populations.
SMARTfit provides a modern data supported, cognitive-motor training option that is a natural fit with memory programs as it is totally customizable and scalable to the ability level of each participant regardless of age or ability.
SMARTfit’s unique combination of enjoyable, safe, socially engaging and ability-scaled programming provides a perfect foundation for senior memory care programs.
Senior care specialists can use SMARTfit as an important component of their memory care with the long term goal of building neural pathways, strengthening cognitive functions, and warding off the onset or effects of age related cognitive impairment.
