The Pacific Brain Health Center at the Neuroscience Institute in Santa Monica, California has included SMARTfit in their 4-week UCLA study.
“When you do exercise you grow new neurons within the hippocampus which is our memory center. However those neurons will quickly die off in the absence of a cognitive simulation environment,” Said Dr. Sarah McEwen during a recent ABC News interview. “So doing cognitive training and physical exercise training at the same time has a greater effect than doing either separately.”
SMARTfit can be used to capture the evidence of conditions, the treatment/training, and the progress of the interaction between the cognitive and motor functions. SMARTfit focuses on dual-tasking coupled with high-level engagement through gamification to enhance cognitive-motor performance.
