Exciting Visual-Cognitive-Motor Training Solutions for Occupational Therapy
Visual-Cognitive-Motor Training Programs for Occupational Therapy
SMARTfit provides some powerful cognitive-motor training solutions to engage patients in multisensory activities that facilitate crutial cognitive processes.
Engaging Learning Activities
in Occupational Therapy Settings
“Using the various activities, our kids are able to work on a variety of skills. Their reaction times and accuracy to hit the targets greatly improve over consecutive trials, demonstrating motor learning and quickened motor responses. We are able to work on static and dynamic postural responses, balance, and proximal stability crucial for participation in playground games and Physical Education classes. Furthermore, the numbers and letters games allow our therapists to address sequencing, letter and number identification, visual discrimination, and visual tracking/scanning abilities, essential for school readiness.” Kimberly Koretoff, OT.
In general, the SMARTfit is one of the best comprehensive activities to address all aspects of sensory integration treatment and our clients have seen wonderful results that translate to their academic, personal, and social lives.” Kimberly Koretoff, OT.
How SMARTfit Works
in Occupational Therapy Environments
SMARTfit allows occupational therapist to design individualized programs for visual, auditory, and proprioceptive training, and then track and validate results using the real-time data collection feature in the iOS/Android App. Results can easily be exported to integrate with other reporting standards.

Everything in Parkinson’s research points to the need for combining cognitive challenges with physical activities - I cannot think of a better way to do that than with SMARTfit.

SMARTfit takes the focus of the player off the mechanics and moves it to the external, forcing the brain to solve two problems at the same time.

I have been using SMARTfit on patients who have post-concussion syndrome and seeing most of their symptoms completely resolved within 2-3 weeks. I look forward to conducting a formal study to validate my findings.
