SMARTfit focus on Improving Cognitive Motor Connectivity

SMARTfit offers new options for physical therapists to address a variety of neuro and orthopedic needs. Exercise that engages cognitive function positively affects brain neuroplasticity and central nervous system health. Research also indicates a strong correlation between the delay or reversal of age-related brain function declines and an active lifestyle. SMARTfit's excells in its ability to deliver customized, scalable and evidence based programming to address specific cognitive and neurological training needs of each client.

“We find the SMARTfit is an incredible adjunct to progressive resistance training and manual therapy. We have also incorporated the SMARTfit training as part of our Total Joint and Stroke Rehabilitation protocols. SMARTfit technology allows us to incorporate activities which improve dynamic balance on both stable and unstable surfaces, standing reach activities and improve reaction time for our geriatric patient population. Our higher level stroke patients’ benefit from the many SMARTfit programs focused on improving cognition and motion.” Mary Rozina, Rozina and Smith Physical Therapy.

Using Specialized Training Activities
to Promote Physical Therapy Outcomes

With proper instruction from qualified professionals, introduction of SMARTfit may assist in the following neuro-cognitive strategies:

  • Train/re-train visual fields
  • Increase speed and span of visual processing
  • Improve visual attention and memory
  • Train visual reaction time
  • Improve decision making
  • Increase concentration
  • Improve problem solving skills
  • Improve bilateral coordination and eye-hand coordination

SMARTfit used with proper instruction from qualified professionals, may assist in the following training strategies:

  • Fall risk reduction
  • Promotion of postural control and correction
  • Facilitation of proprioceptive/balance training
  • Functional mobility improvement
  • Increases in balance and vestibular fitness
  • Improved strength and physical endurance

Our Scientific Advisors

Our scientific advisors have an amazing collection of credentials and include individuals who represent prestigious clinical organizations and are actively working as authorities in their fields of study.

Beth Fisher
PhD, PT, FAPTA
“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.”
Professor of Clinical Physical Therapy Director, Neuroplasticity and Imaging Laboratory Division of Biokinesiology and Physical Therapy University of Southern California
Christopher Powers
PhD, PT, FACSM, FAPTA
“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. It solves the big missing part in rehab because we want carry-over onto the field. SMARTfit is a great tool to test if that is happening. Further studies will help us to measure its full effectiveness.”
USC Professor
Director, Biokinesiology Program
Co-Director, Biomechanics Research Lab
Charles Y. Liu
PhD, MD
“I am extremely intrigued and optimistic that SMARTfit will prove to be an exceptionally effective and important tool that combines cognitive and motor training in unique and endless combinations to address a multitude of indications within the athletic and medical realms.”
Professor, Neurosurgery, Neurology, and Biomedical Engineering USC Director, USC Neurorestoration Center
Charles Flowers
MD, FACS
“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.”
Clinical Associate Professor of Opthamology at USC Roski Eye Institute at Keck School of Medicine
Director of Sports Vision Training and Visual Rehab Center at USC Roski Eye Institute

SMARTfit equips the physical therapists with a functional and brain training solution that is based on Hebbian Theory (neurons that fire together, wire together), to engage motor and cognitive focused activities that stimulate neuroplasticity and neurogenisis.
