Enhancing Military Performance by Training the Brain and Body Simultaneously

Tactical Warfighter, Rehab, Fitness, Support Functions, Youth Programs

The Unique Needs of Military Operations:

“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

SMARTfit’s Solution:

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.

check

Cognitive and physical speed and endurance

check

Tolerating distractions – visual, cognitive, manual, auditory 

check

Tolerating high-pressure conditions with consequences 

check

Integration of semantic (facts), episodic (prior events) and automatized procedural memory (“motor memory” skills/habits) 

check

Task interruption, prioritization, switching, resuming 

check

Physical and cognitive demands to the point of exhaustion 

check

High demands on capacity and accuracy in working AND long-term memory 

check

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.
