Youth development through immersive gameplay.

Functional, Motor and Active Learning Solutions for Youth

SMARTfit® has designed a suite of functional, motor and active learning solutions for use in youth development organizations, including special needs schools, children's hospitals and clinics, and early childhood education programs.

The youth development space uniquely combines elements of clinical care, specialized educational research, and recreational activity in order to address specific cognitive and physical development in children and teenagers. SMARTfit® functional, motor and active learning solutions provide a tool for youth development specialists to design gamified fitness and learning activities which provide a range of benefits relating to cognitive and motor skills. The ability to develop these skills through the use of a fun, gamified programming makes SMARTfit® a natural fit into youth development programs.

FUN

Brain and Body Fitness
and Youth Development

Continuous research has demonstrated the ability of functional, motor and active learning solutions to establish and strengthen neural pathways that develop during combined physical and cognitive activities.

In the hands of a skilled trainer, cognitive and motor development can be incorporated into specialized training programs intended to create specific developmental or learning benefits in youth. The SMARTfit® line of systems give teachers, trainers and clinicians a unique modern tool to provide enjoyable exercises that deliver well on expectations. Kids get a great workout, learn quickly and develop social skills concurrently.

How SMARTfit® Works
in Youth Development Environments

Regular physical activity is thoroughly demonstrated to be an important component in the physical and cognitive development of children and teens. SMARTfit® takes this concept further by providing physical training centered around play and activities incorporating scalable levels of cognitive, motor and physical intensity. The entire experience is connected by elements of fun, skill development, challenge accomplishment, and friendly competition. SMARTfit® quickly becomes an indispensable tool to youth development by creating multisensory stimulation in a game based format.

Educators, coaches, and other professionals associated with youth development have historically expressed the need for methods which make learning and exercise interesting for children and teens. By satisfying these needs in a unique format, SMARTfit® is a natural fit with youth organizations focused on child care, children’s clinics, youth sports clubs, children’s hospitals, and youth learning centers.

Application Companion

SMARTfit® is a workout console with an integrated CPU which allows users to configure a comprehensive collection of games, drills, and training modes to fit a variety of clinical scenarios. Custom lesson plans can be designed which allows clinicians to create their own nuanced approach to therapy, rehab, or coordinated healthcare, and engage patients in varying levels of cognitive intensity from mild to aggressive. Users can control the CPU from a remote application that is compatible with iOS and Android devices allowing users to develop their own personal workflow.

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.”
