SMARTfit

Brain research continues to confirm the concept of neuroplasticity, the brain’s ability to change and adapt, even rewire itself, when challenged to do so. Science is also confirming that exercise that simultaneously engages the full body and multiple senses (eyes, ears, feet, hands and vestibular system) requires more complex cognitive function to make decisions and execute skills. Neuroplasticity kicks in, the brain adapts, and performance improves. This is what SMARTfit™ delivers.

A unique multisensory brain-body experience

No other fitness product can engage such a wide range of people, ages, and abilities while providing cognitive training while working out. From personal training to an invigorating group session for baby boomers, then providing preschoolers with an immersive action based learning experience to letting off some steam after work.

For schools, our SMARTfit™ Trainers can take on a whole PE class at once. With no moving parts they are virtually indestructible under normal use. For gyms and fitness centers they represent the forefront of high intensity cognitive fitness training, a unique offering to members, and an additional revenue option with group classes and personal training.

SMARTfit™ has applications within rehabilitation environments providing motivating games and multi-planar movements to develop muscle tissue and restore proprioception. It can be used as part of developmental programs for ASD or SPD programs.

SMARTfit Technology

-How it Works-

SMARTfit™ High Intensity Cognitive Training™ – The Science

SMARTfit™ combines seven key elements to create a unique, fun, measurable and highly effective integrated multisensory brain-body training experience:

  • Multisensory stimulation
  • High-level engagement through gameplay
  • Instant feedback and trackable results
  • Real, tactile, resistance and impact based training
  • Multiplanar lower body movement over various distances & directions
  • Multiplanar upper body functional or sports movements
  • Social & Team interaction
Brain-Body Fitness and Neuroplasticity

White Paper: SMARTfit™ Multisensory Fitness Training: The Science Behind its Brain-Body Integrated Approach and its Effect on Neuroplasticity

When it comes to localizing and tracking moving objects, it is likely that the human brain evolved to develop, learn, and operate optimally in multisensory environments. Thus, multisensory training protocols can better approximate natural settings and are more effective for learning. SMARTfit™ programs are fitness training products for all ages and ability levels. Visual, auditory, and physical tasks are integrated in performing the motor skills required. These protocols, with their profound and SIMULTANEOUS brain/body stimulation, are the key element that differentiates a functional training program from a general conditioning program. This unique form of exergaming stimulates greater input to the proprioceptors of the motor system, and with it, greater subsequent refinement of movement patterns. The resistance and motor patterns encountered by the use of real sports equipment creates more dynamic neuromuscular control in a functional setting of play.

Sports Performance

When it comes to localizing and tracking moving objects, it is likely that the human brain evolved to develop, learn, and operate optimally in multisensory environments. Thus, multisensory training protocols can better approximate natural settings and are more effective for training athletes… When the brain is engaged by having to make decisions under pressure while playing interactive ball sports, the benefits are enhanced significantly because gross motor skills must be incorporated. Neurons develop only when the player is confronted with a demand for greater efficiency (skill development). As far as the brain is concerned, if you need a skill, you develop it only when you are confronted with the need, and then practice performing it.

Fitness and Childhood Obesity

White Paper: The Science Behind SMARTfit’s™ Fitness Games for Combating Childhood Obesity

Now called the “childhood obesity epidemic” the prevalence of overweight children and adolescents has increased dramatically over the past several decades. With it comes previously unheard of incidences of chronic diseases like obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. Why not engage them in real sports? The answer is that sports are not universally engaging to children. Dr. Bruce Bailey, Assistant Professor of Exercise Science at Brigham Young University says,”Previously we’ve focused on sports as a way to get children physically active,”but not all of them are interested in organized sports.

Boomers & Seniors

White Paper: SMARTfit™ Effects: The Science Behind its Brain/ Body Training for Seniors

According to the US Census Bureau, 76 million baby boomers were born between 1946 and 1964. Every day more than 10,000 baby boomers reach the age of 65. This will continue to happen daily for the next 19 years. In addition, modern medicine, science and technology have brought the majority of diseases and nutritional deficiencies under control, thereby increasing the average life expectancy from 65 to 85 years. The consequence delivers an average of 20 years of leisure time for seniors to spend either having a great active life or suffering from numerous age related conditions that rob them of the joy of their later years. As Dr. Henry Lodge, author of the best-selling book Younger Next Year: a Guide to Living Like 50 until You’re 80 and Beyond states, “You are likely to live longer whether you want it or not, but how you live those years is largely under your control, which is a good reason to make the last third of your life terrific”.
