SMARTfit Software Updates in First Quarter of 2021

The SMARTfit App will be receiving an upgrade to attend to suggested improvements to the dual task cost and neuropsychological tests by our clinical advisors in order to make them more accurate.  In addition, they have suggested some small changes to some of the games to ensure we are challenging all domains of the brain.  During the year we will keep releasing more games focused on providing a comprehensive battery of tests loaded with variety to keep participants from getting bored.

We Have Simplified the Tabs in the Play Tab and Provided Videos to Explain How Each Section Works:

Learning how the App works. Here are the revised videos that will help you to find what you need quickly:

Games:

In an effort to make it easier to understand how the games work we have sorted them into folders by type and provided a training video in each folder.  At this time the majority of our customers are still only using the games which is fine if trainers are clear on the physical activity they want their clients to do while playing the games. These videos will help trainers quickly learn the benefits of the different games.

All games are featured in all modes but are played differently depending on the SMARTfit system. In other words, the SMARTfit strike Pods play differently from the SMARTfit Mini or Single but still give you access to all of the same games except in cases where they are impractical such as not enough targets or the layout does not work for the game.

Free Activities Tab is now labeled Predesigned Activities:

This Tab provides folders that add physical exercises to the games showing the right form and function while the games are being played.  These set up the right conditions for the specific cognitive-motor engagement to achieve the desired outcome.  Trainers and therapists can use these activities to build out a program for each client within their client accounts.  Within each folder, we have further sorted the activities into specifically labeled folders to guide trainers/therapists more directly to what they need.  Also, the search feature allows you to find exercises more quickly as well.

Free Programs Tab is now labeled Predesigned Programs:

This Tab provides folders of predesigned activities that are grouped into programs that are ready to go.  Each programs has a list of activities that cycle through showing videos before starting and collecting data for progress reporting purposes.  This ensures that the trainer is using safe practices when playing the games.  

SMARTfit Neuro Programming for the Strike Pods:

This wonderful package of 72 exercises designed for older adults and patients recovering from stroke and Parkinson’s is now available in the commercial fitness mode.

Modes:

The pre-designed activities and programs appear in the following modes.

  • Rehab/medical: Orthopedic rehab, Neuro-rehab, Motor-Vestibular, and Brain Health for Older Adults https://smartfitos.com/
  • Commercial Fitness/Sports: Fitness by Gunnar Peterson, Brain Health for Older Adults, Youth Programming and Sports Performance.  Sports Performance is going to get a great new make-over in early 2021. https://www.smartfit.rocks/

What to Expect in Software Upgrades First Quarter 2021:

  1. Improved Test Tab and report writer.
  2. Group training: This feature will allow multiple participants to track their data in a single workout session without logging them out and in each time.
  3. Organization groups: This feature will allow multiple sites to work under one password protected group allowing them to build shared programming and review progress data at each site.
  4. Sports Performance/tactical training for military/police/fire: This section is currently being rewritten to cater for high performance sports and tactical training.  It will be backed by science, competitive and loaded with fun challenges for all demographic levels.
