“Warfighters and support personnel must perform a diversity of tasks across military training and operational environments. Optimal execution of these tasks requires ongoing coordination of physical and cognitive resources to meet the common and unique demands presented by both task and setting.” – Military Cognitive Performance and Readiness Assessment Initiative, 2017
Designed by top neuroscientists, clinicians, and trainers, SMARTfit enhances high-level cognitive function, physical mobility, and overall human performance by training the brain and body simultaneously. Its gamified technology and programming engage users while measuring and training a comprehensive range of cognitive, physical, and brain-body (dual-task) performance.
This approach has been scientifically proven to be more effective than training the brain and body separately. Training them together simulates real-life challenges so the brain and body learn to work faster and more effectively together.
SMARTfit specifically measures and trains the unique challenges of military operations.
Cognitive and physical speed and endurance
Tolerating distractions – visual, cognitive, manual, auditory
Tolerating high-pressure conditions with consequences
Integration of semantic (facts), episodic (prior events) and automatized procedural memory (“motor memory” skills/habits)
Task interruption, prioritization, switching, resuming
Physical and cognitive demands to the point of exhaustion
High demands on capacity and accuracy in working AND long-term memory
Inhibition of self-centric behaviors that are counter to mission fulfillment
SMARTfit tests and trains dual-task performance with not only visual, but tactile, high impact, math, language, multiple-object, and other stimuli to enhance physical and cognitive speed and agility, reaction time, inhibition control, proprioception, vestibular function, executive function, attention, situational awareness, and cognitive stamina while under physical stress.
The ability to deploy SMARTfit into a variety of indoor or outdoor training settings further enhances its training potential.
SMARTfit programming activates all domains of the brain
Gamification ensures higher engagement and motivation.
