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.
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.
SMARTfit® provides the youth development sector with a modern device which provides a new approach to combined exercise, learning, and fun. This is a complex device with thousands of possible real world applications, but integrating into your workflow is easy.
