Overview


Brain and Body Fitness Programming to Enhance Performance in All Populations

Developed by industry experts and scientifically proven to produce fast results, SMARTfit combines brain and physical health, with functional fitness and sports performance training technology. SMARTfit adds to the power of dual task (cognitive-motor) training by delivering all activities using gamification which increases both engagement and enjoyment, and in turn produces quick results. Combining exercise with cognitive tasks, as the SMARTfit products do, may provide neural protection across a person's lifetime. Researchers believe that such novel interventions designed to stimulate key cognitive domains during exercise may be especially beneficial to brain health over the adult lifespan. (Source)



Applications include: 


  • Neuro and Orthopedic Rehab in in-patient, out-patient, and medical wellness facilities
  • Brain Health Programs for Assisted Adults in Long-term Care, Memory Care and Skilled Nursing Facilities
  • Wellness and Active Aging programs for Independent Older Adults 
  • Sports Performance Training from Youth to Professional level
  • Tactical Training for Military, Police, and Fire


SMARTfit products engage players of all ages and abilities with a revolutionary and comprehensive baseline test of cognitive capabilities while the participant is moving, followed up by turnkey programs to improve brain health and physical performance. This is known in the Physical Therapy world as Dual-Task training. 




The first of its kind, HIPAA protected encrypted data will provide normative information that will help in the following circumstances and will allow: 


  • Pharmaceutical companies to test prescription dosage on motor and cognitive function (medication side effects are a leading cause of falls in seniors).
  • Neuro and speech therapists to compare and measure motor function in neuro-patients with acute and chronic conditions such as head injuries (Traumatic Brain Injury-TBI/concussion), stroke, Parkinson’s, etc.
  • Practitioners to track the rate of cognitive and motor decline in seniors, which can predict fall risk in order to effectively provide preventative training. 
  • Athletic trainers to measure and compare athletes’ ability to function under extreme cognitive and physical pressure and fatigue. 

The Problem


Today's Fitness Training neglects the Brain-Body connection, limiting transference to real life.

Today's Fitness Training neglects the Brain-Body connection, thus limiting transference to real life. Anthropologists and neuroscientists are working together to understand how humans' unique evolutionary history explains modern human physiological variation and how an evolutionary context can be used to improve health and well-being. (Source) Using an evolutionary-neuroscience approach to develop the Adaptive Capacity Model (ACM), they have detailed how and why physical activity improves brain function and the benefits of combining exercise and cognitive challenge to enhance neuroplasticity. (Source) They believe this perspective plays a major role in preventing and managing diseases that occur late in life. (Source)


As humans have become increasingly inactive, especially since the Industrial Revolution over 200 years ago, there has been a major decline in both physical and neurological health. (Source) (Source) (Source) In addition to rising obesity and increased inactivity, we face ever increasing rates of neurological conditions such as dementia (Source), Alzheimer’s Disease (Source), Parkinson’s Disease (Source), and autism (Source). Creating and connecting new neurons and neural pathways across the various domains of the brain is the first step to improving functional performance in all of life’s pursuits.


SMARTfit’s cloud-based, data-driven technology and video-supported programming does just that, both delivering and continually improving the world’s most advanced solutions for measuring, assessing, and training physical, cognitive, and dual-task performance. Designed by top clinicians, trainers, and engineers, SMARTfit’s highly engaging gamified solutions offer unmatched, industry-leading value to our customers and end users. Personalized and customizable for all ages, abilities, and levels, these solutions now include programming and data tracking for personal and group training along with multi-site organizational management capability.


  • SMARTfit produces faster results,
  • It is functionally transferable to real life,
  • Most importantly, it is fun!


SMARTfit brings the entire neurological system into cooperation with the mind’s intent. 


“All the best games are easy to learn and difficult to master.”

- Nolan Bushnell, founder of Atari and Chuck E. Cheese 



Traditional uni-planer exercise ignores the importance of the brain’s lead role as the “conductor of the orchestra.” Breaking down training programs into separate activities can result in joint injuries especially in older adults.

The Solution


Gamified Brain and Body Fitness Training

At SMARTfit, we developed our user-friendly neuro-cognitive fitness technology to address a broad range of markets in a single customizable app. SMARTfit systems provide rapid results with proven sustainability and adherence, and make training fun. 


This approach appeals to the kid in all of us, resulting in strong appeal to  a wide range of users. 


Furthermore, SMARTfit’s hardware solutions come in four configurable models and the pricing is highly competitive.  


SMARTfit Mini - Low Impact and High Impact Models

The SMARTfit Mini comes in two versions: Low Impact and High Impact Mini. Both versions are available as a wall-mount or a portable system and include nine computerized targets in a square training station. 


The SMARTfit Mini is the ideal training solution for workouts that focus on concentrated cognitive and motor training.  


SMARTfit believes that the SMARTfit Low Impact Mini’s smaller footprint makes it ideal for tight spaces and its portability makes it a perfect option for delivering dual-task training room-to-room in retirement communities and classrooms. 


Programs suited to the Mini include:

  • Neuro and Orthopedic Rehab

  • Sports performance training for non-ball sports

  • Early childhood education

  • Active aging

  • Geriatric rehab

  • Boxing and martial arts.

The combination of cognitive and motor skills training is known to significantly speed up neuromotor skills and improvements in cognition. 




SMARTfit Single

The SMARTfit Single can be wall-mounted, floor-mounted or portable, and can be optionally configured to interact with up to five portable Strike Pods to create a 360 degree training environment.


The Company considers the SMARTfit Single to be the ideal trainer for ball sports as it offers a larger playing area to catch rebounds.


Applications include turnkey personal training and small group training  programs for sports performance, youth sports, return-to-play sports rehab and for wellness.




SMARTfit Strike Pods

The SMARTfit Strike Pods are portable and can be set up in nearly any configuration, allowing the creation of endless workout environment combinations, each with unique ergonomic, physical and cognitive challenges.


The Strike Pods can both operate independently or can be connected as additional touch points with the SMARTfit Single and SMARTfit Mini systems.



SMARTfit ProTrainer/MultiTrainer Models

The SMARTfit ProTrainer can be configured in two, three, or four connected sections to form an integrated electronic backboard, or to form competing stations aligned side-by-side. Each section hosts its own scoreboard and 9 strike/touch-sensitive targets  individually registering the location of each strike.


When operating as an electronic backboard, the sections register a single score. When operating as stations, each station will register its own competing score. This versatility offers the benefits of both large group/team training as well as training for ball sports where the system doubles as a responding opponent. The ProTrainer adjustable sensing system can withstand impact from hands, feet, boxing gloves, and any air-filled medicine or sports ball.




SMARTfit considers the SMARTfit® MultiTrainer to be the perfect training solution for large groups. It links up to four separate stations with each station accommodating up to 12 team members in round robin games. Programming is available for fitness and team-building programs for all ages especially youth and seniors.


These large group SMARTfit models will soon join the previously mentioned SMARTfit models on the Cloud, offering multi-site management of programming, scheduling, individual baseline tests and progress tracking and reporting. This will deliver a powerful assessment tool to organizations that provide fitness programming for large groups.




How We Are Different

SMARTfit’s technology puts the brain in charge of exercise. The company has gamified its system so that it appeals to the general population, well beyond the 19.3% of people who already exercise every day, according to the CDC’s 2020 report.(Source)



SMARTfit provides multi-site organizations with the ability to deploy programming and monitor every individual site, trainer, and client to ensure quality of care. This meets the needs of large multi-site customers including retirement communities, fitness franchises, and hospitals. 




According to SMARTfit’s research, we are one of the only rehab equipment companies that provides both cognitive motor testing and training on the same piece of equipment, eliminating the need to invest in two separate technologies. 


SMARTfit works with individual, small group, and large group training. The systems are space efficient as they attach to the walls providing ease of use in any multi-purpose room.


Medical Research Confirming Our Effectiveness

A study at Keck Medicine of USC demonstrated that SMARTfit improved outcomes of patients with Parkinson’s when compared with traditional Physical Therapy. (Source)


Our Growing Traction

After nine years of technology development, SMARTfit’s product lines including its proprietary operating system are defined, field-tested, and shipping, thereby paving the way to accelerated growth post-pandemic.



SMARTfit won the Innovation Award when launched at the Physical Therapy Conference in Paris in October of 2018. 



SMARTfit applications for rehab, active aging/medical wellness, and both tactical and personal training/fitness are complete and available within the SMARTfit app on both iOS and Android platforms. SMARTfit’s continually growing program libraries feature over 2000 video-supported activities.


Currently, SMARTfit is working with and supporting an estimated 600 sites in 14 countries where early adopters have tested various aspects of the technology creating approximately $6 million in revenue since 2016.


Moving forward, the company is working on designing applications for sports training and youth development.  In the new year SMARTfit plans to commence the building of its subscription model and live streamed gamification for sports, fitness, and home markets. 

 

The company’s software improvements are able to continue indefinitely in response to customer feedback.




Over the past six months, the company has been signing major distributors and dealers who are positioned to distribute the products in the rehab, fitness, and sports markets. 


SMARTfit has already acquired its first two major accounts – one to supply systems to 160 memory care facilities and the other to provide the anchor technology for an age 55+ fitness chain. Dozens more are in the pipeline. 



In addition to system sales, SMARTfit plans to also generate revenue through the app via online subscriptions from B2B customers as well as B2C customers. Additionally, the Company has the ability to sell statistical data in the future while still protecting the privacy of all users.

Basketball Star Steph Curry’s Training Teaches Us How to Prevent Falls, Improve Military Performance, and Slow Dementia

9 days ago

Dr. Mike Studer, world-renowned expert on dual-task training, explains how the principles behind Curry's regimen work to improve performance at any level


CAMARILLO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, June 14, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- What can pro basketball star Stephen Curry’s training program teach us about fall prevention, military tactical performance, stroke or concussion rehab, and slowing or preventing the progression of Parkinson’s disease or dementia? Or for that matter, any other daily activity that requires the brain and body to work efficiently together to achieve optimal performance?

Dr. Mike Studer, DPT and world-renowned expert on dual-task (aka cognitive-physical or brain and body) training, believes Curry’s program tells us much about how we can all train to live healthier, happier, and more productive lives. Dr. Studer has been using SMARTfit in his practice for almost four years and developed the company’s exclusive Dual Task Cost Test, which measures and suggests programming to improve performance.

“Curry starts every warmup by dribbling two basketballs simultaneously,” observes Dr. Studer. “What he’s doing is known as dual tasking. When he’s in the game and only having to dribble one basketball, he’s trained himself to be so automatized, what’s known as procedural memory, that he doesn’t require any of his cognitive resources to handle one basketball. He practices repeatedly by dribbling two basketballs so that his proficiency with one basketball and cognitive attention to the rest of his game is highly elevated.”

On Tactical Performance

“What if I translated that idea into the decision-making processes required of our “tactical athletes” in the armed forces, police, and firefighters,” continues Dr. Studer. “If I need to make quick decisions that my life and those around me depend on, I need to be able to run, decision-make, stop, fire, and consider everything in the environment at once. A tactical athlete needs endurance of the body, endurance of the mind, rapid decision making, and the ability to not only dual, but multi-task. So SMARTfit has already created an entire programming platform specifically for them.”

On Dementia, Alzheimer's

“Imagine I was a tenured professor at Harvard. I taught there for 45 years, but I got Alzheimer’s disease that started to become detectible at 82 years old. Because I’d built such a resource, or redundancy, of my intelligence, my Alzheimer’s might have developed and been detected at age 68, but it couldn’t be detected because I had developed a reserve. That’s what we want SMARTfit to be able to do for people of all ages – train their brain and body together to develop cognitive reserve.”

On Other Degenerative Diseases, Stroke, Concussion

“Another important reason for training cognitive reserve is if you’re stricken with a degenerative disease like Parkinson’s or a one-time insult (medical term) such as stroke or concussion, you will have elevated your nervous system capabilities so that the insult takes from a larger pool of resources that would not have been available if you had not pre-habilitated or trained your brain and body over time to work more effectively together.”

On Preventing Falls

“There is clear evidence for the functional significance of DTI (dual task intervention) on gait speed, fall frequency, and independence of gait. Dual task training can simulate attentional demands such as talking, texting, cleaning glasses, and assessing a dynamic environment while walking. Neuroplasticity (learning) comes when sufficient demand during therapy or training pushes the organization of the motor control of gait into the procedural memory centers.”

The Ability to Elevate Your Game is Not Limited by Age or Ability

“People of all ages and abilities can improve their game by engaging, gamifying, and practicing intensively their physical and cognitive attributes together. As my friend and colleague Dr. Rob Winningham will tell you, you don’t have to be young to start and benefit from a cognitive-physical, dual-task training program. The research is clear that neuroplasticity, the ability of the brain to enhance and create new neural connections in the brain to improve human performance, is not limited by age. You can improve physical, cognitive, and dual-task performance throughout later life.”

On SMARTfit

“There continues to be much to learn, but I can tell you this: SMARTfit is the only technology I’ve found that can scale cognitive demand while concurrently executing a wide variety of physical movements and skills. Progressive increments in cognitive demand while concurrently scaling physical demands ensures leveling and prevents overwhelm or boredom. This allows the concept of demand and supply to produce optimum results for neuroplasticity. This applies to new learning, recovery, and preventions.”

Improve Executive Functioning to Extend Healthspan for Older Adults

16 days ago

Dr. Rob Winningham, leading neuroscientist and gerontologist, was recently interviewed about the critical role executive functioning plays in maintaining independence and quality of life and extending healthspan as we grow older.

 

“SMARTfit can improve executive functioning better than physical or cognitive exercise alone. 20 years of research says that generalizes, or transfers, to real-world function – things that have never been trained before like activities of daily living that can maximize independence and quality of life," says Dr. Winningham, Provost and Dean of Academic Affairs at Western Oregon University.

 

“Here’s a goal!  If we can delay dementia by four years, it’s predicted that we can cut the number of cases in half.  If you improve executive function – the ability to pay attention, make a new memory, the ability to remember the stove is on, then the research says it generalizes to everything.

 

The research is clear that dual tasking improves executive function more than cognitive exercise or physical exercise alone. The right program can also save a facility big dollars! A study in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that $12,000 per year was saved, on average, in Memory Care facilities that just gave people the option of physical exercise.”

Is the Brain the Next Frontier in Fitness & Rehab?

about 1 month ago


Neuroscientists say the benefits of training the brain and body simultaneously (aka dual tasking) to enhance cognitive function, physical mobility, and overall human performance have been clear for some time.  Act!vate, which opens its first location in Cincinnati in June and plans to open more, features SMARTfit’s gamified dual-task assessment and training technology.  The following are highlights from a story on WKRC in Cincinnati titled “The Science Behind Brain Aging in Reverse”.

CINCINNATI (WKRC) – If you’ve noticed you’re having trouble remembering what you never used to forget, it might be time to start exercising not just your body, but your brain.

Scientists say the pandemic has been especially hard on our brains.  From the isolation to the virus itself, brain fitness experts say if we want to age in reverse when it comes to memory and thinking, we might need to change the way we work out.

Adam Ortman is part of a research team conducting a trial with Miami University of Ohio to find out how exercise impacts memory and thinking skills. “So, the research shows that when your heart rate is elevated, and you challenge the brain, you can improve your focus, your attention time, reaction time and processing speed,” said Ortman, the Chief Exercise Science Officer at Activate Brain and Body.

Act!vate Brain & Body’s new facility features SMARTfit

John Spence, Activate’s CEO, adds “One of the things that we know is that if you start living your lifestyle a certain way that you can actually have some control about how your brain ages.  Research shows you improve it by “managing a cognitive task while you’re doing something physical, which is also known as dual-tasking”

Ortman’s team is also specifically exploring its effects on people who report that, after two years of the pandemic, “’I’m more isolated,’ and two, ‘I’m feeling this COVID brain fog,’” said Spence.

"Beyond Yoga: Elevating Mind-Body Exercise to Battle Cognitive Decline"

about 1 month ago

“Combining physical activity with cognitive training yields better results than either alone. Here’s what you can do.”

We’re pleased to share highlights from this fascinating and educational article in NextAvenue.org.  Author Rashelle Brown explores the history and science of efforts to slow the aging process by combining physical with cognitive training. She takes us through the evolution of this proven concept, from traditional “mind-body” exercises like Yoga to emerging “mind+body” solutions including SMARTfit.

“Physical activity and cognitive training are two lifestyle factors that have been widely studied, with each showing a degree of benefit” writes Brown. “More recently, however, scientists, and a few entrepreneurs, have been combining the two in hopes of achieving better outcomes. In this article, we take a look at that science — and the emerging technology it is spawning.

Dr. Esther Karssemeijer, who wrote her PhD thesis on the topic of combined physical and cognitive exercise at Radboud University, Netherlands noted that doing physical activity at the same time as performing cognitive tasks, known in the research as “simultaneous” training, seems to be more effective than doing physical activity right before or after a session of cognitive training, known as “sequential” training.” 

Brown continues by explaining simultaneous training and its benefits…

“Yoga is often thought of as “mind-body” exercise: an activity that seeks to bring the mind and body into harmony through movement and breath. That can be fantastic for reducing stress and improving focus, all while creating a little movement and improving flexibility.

However, the simultaneous training being studied by brain scientists is more like “mind+body” exercise: two different activities done at once, each requiring a different type of focus and attention.

It’s this “dual-task” training that appears to confer the greater benefits. By way of example, here are three companies that have created products or services based on the simultaneous training concept.”

SMARTfit is one of several “beyond Yoga” examples Brown features in the article:

“In Camarillo, California, Cathi Lamberti, a former schoolteacher turned entrepreneur, has come up with a very different approach to simultaneous training. SmartFit is an electronic gaming system Lamberti described as “a 360-degree cognitive gym that you respond to with your decision-making brain.” The system can be configured in countless different ways, making it accessible to people with a wide variety of physical abilities.”

SMARTfit Inc. Reviewed Financials Officially Released

2 months ago

SMARTfit Inc. today reported its financial results for 2021, reflecting an industry turnaround in the latter part of the year.

"2021 has laid the foundation for accelerating growth in 2022," said Cathi Lamberti, Chief Executive Officer and Board Chair. "These results reflect growing market recognition and acceptance of our Company's game-changing rehabilitative and fitness solutions that integrate brain and body performance."

Financial highlights in 2021:

  • New Product – 4th Q results – The SMARTfit Low-Impact Mini was developed for mass production in 2021 and started shipping in October 2021. The 4th quarter 2021 revenue was $755,000 representing over 50% of annual sales. Of the total 4th quarter 2021 revenue, $443,000 is attributed to the Low-Impact model. This demonstrates the importance of the Low-Impact Mini to the scalability of the Company.
  • The development of multi-site software was completed in July 2021 prior to the launch of the low-impact portable system. This prepared the Company to fulfill an opening order of 60 systems from a customer that provides rehab services to 380 long-term care facilities.  This new software deploys programming across an entire organization and tracks both baseline and progress reports on individuals, trainers and groups at all facilities. This data will be used to market the effectiveness of the organizations’ services and serves as a test case for our Company’s technology.
  • The world’s first Cloud based Dual Task Cost Assessment for independent and assisted level older adults is complete. We believe this Assessment is the first to objectively measure the loss of cognitive and/or motor capability when a cognitive task and a motor task are done simultaneously.  The loss of reaction time has proven to be a reliable indicator of fall risk, according to research published in the American Journal of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation.  Researchers believe SMARTfit's systems provide the first standardization of physical reaction time testing.

CAMARILLO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, April 19, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- SMARTfit Inc. is pleased to announce the appointment of Jason Polete to its board of directors. Mr. Polete is the Chief Executive Officer of MDAmerica Group. He has spent nearly three decades in healthcare technology and administration, with extensive experience in the rehabilitative/rehabilitation service industries, involving operational, administrative and revenue cycle aspects of the business. MDAmerica is SMARTfit's dealer in New York and New Jersey.

“Given his history and experience with building medical technology companies, Jason Polete brings to our board of directors a specialized focus that we believe will significantly contribute to advancing our goals for growing the company in the medical rehabilitation and senior markets,” said Cathi Lamberti, SMARTfit's CEO and Board Chair. “We are pleased to add Jason to our board to help guide our company going forward. Jason will be focusing on corporate level guidance, introducing the company to business opportunities in the medical and retirement markets, procuring government contracts, and applying his expertise in obtaining business with Medicare.”

Mr. Polete discussed his motivation for joining the board of directors as an incoming investor. “Medicare allocates $30-$50 billion for prevention of debilitating accidents and diseases. Proper and targeted training can prevent or reduce the effects of most accidents. For example, fall prevention and balance training are critical in this regard. SMARTfit’s ability to not only identify specific needs but also to provide the appropriate training programs is unprecedented.

SMARTfit's technology is able to meet this stringent requirement with objective data, as opposed to subjective reporting," he said. "I am excited by the impressive capability of SMARTfit's systems to address all of these issues, and I look forward to assisting the company in navigating the approval process with Medicare and other government institutions.”

Mr. Polete has spent nearly 3 decades in the healthcare technology and administration industry and has extensive experience in the rehabilitative fields in the operational, administrative and revenue cycle aspects of the business. He has worked closely with hundreds of OT and PT providers, as well as premier rehabilitative institutions such as Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation. His knowledge of the the industry and extensive experience in assisting clients with management and development of their businesses will be advantageous to SMARTfit's growth.

Further, Mr. Polete sees the benefit of the investment opportunity in SMARTfit. He plans to take on distributorship of SMARTfit solutions in the states of New York and New Jersey. He states, “I have a very well-qualified team on the clinical side, and once I have the product in place and my staff trained, they will successfully execute on the plan. I will focus personally on corporate level support and on larger contracts as well as fund raising.”

Mr Polete will be filling a vacant seat on the board until the next annual shareholder meeting at which time he plans to run for another term.

Play Smart, Get Fit and have Fun With SMARTfit – A Brain-Body Wellness Solution for 55+ Facilities

2 months ago

CAMARILLO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, April 12, 2022 -- Surveys show that older adults fear loss of independence more than they fear death. A decline in cognition or physical ability is worrisome to anyone, and the aging “baby boomer” population’s willingness to invest in delaying these declines opens a strong business opportunity for fitness providers who want to provide solutions that are attractive to this demographic.

This is where SMARTfit shines! It is the reason it has become the go-to choice for 55+ fitness and wellness facilities. Research suggests that engaging in cognitive-motor training simultaneously can be more beneficial than one or the other separately. SMARTfit’s cognitive-motor gamified programming is fun, socially engaging, and offers appropriate, flexible challenges. Participation can have a profound impact on fall prevention, cognitive decline, and general fitness.

SMARTfit’s gamified training not only attracts participation, it actually simulates real life by triggering mental goals that are achieved with physical engagement which results in neurogenesis across the entire neurological system. Because its diverse activities are experienced as games rather than tedious or boring exercise, SMARTfit assists participants in rapidly meeting and exceeding both their mental and physical fitness goals.

“I’ve been working out regularly on SMARTfit for 3 years and it has improved my life,” says Leslie Brtek, a 73-year-old retired school teacher from Santa Barbara, CA. “It creates the engagement and demand that makes it all happen. I start with the intention to get in a few minutes’ workout but it invariably turns into an hour because I’m having fun. I see the difference in my daily life; my mental processing is quicker and I’m staying fit. Thanks to SMARTfit, I have more confidence about my ability to take care of myself as I age.”

Older adults can greatly benefit from SMARTfit because it is fun and engaging and keeps them motivated as their mental and physical skills build rapidly. Brtek sums up, “SMARTfit meets you were you are and takes you were you want to go. I enjoy it and I look forward to my workouts.”

Atlantis Physical Therapy Relies on SMARTfit in Their Neuro-Rehabilitation and Brain Health Programs

3 months ago


CAMARILLO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, March 22, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Atlantis Physical Therapy, located in Torrance, CA and a franchisee of the Fyzical group, has long been a trusted partner by the region’s physicians in vestibular and balance rehabilitation. Since 2019, as one of the first PT facilities to purchase SMARTfit, owner Ruth Kurihara, has expanded to offer a more comprehensive approach by combining traditional physical and occupational therapy featuring dual-task training that employs both cognitive and physical activity simultaneously.


Brain research continues to confirm the concept of neuroplasticity: the brain’s ability to change, adapt and even rewire itself when challenged to do so. Research also confirms that patient engagement and high repetitions of motor movement are needed for neuroplasticity to begin. Because constant motivation for neuro rehab patients is often challenging, SMARTfit has been designed to be fun and engaging while also scaling all games to meet each individual’s cognitive and physical ability.


“SMARTfit is an amazing piece of equipment. It has allowed us to take our neuro and ortho rehab programs to a new level. Best of all, its scalable to meet the varied needs of our patients regardless of their abilities. The patients find it engaging unlike anything they have done before. They look forward to using it and feel a real sense of accomplishment and progression. The SMARTfit system has become a cornerstone of our new Covid-19 Rehab program and allowed us to develop a more robust Functional Aging/Brain Health Program. It has truly transformed how we deliver patient care.” Explains Kurihara.


SMARTfit Technology Helps Improve Physical Performance and Brain Health with Dual-Tasking


The SMARTfit Physical Therapy program puts a focus on improving motor and cognitive outcomes, both independently and simultaneously. It can aid in the treatment of orthopedic and neurological conditions in an integrated manner, eliminating the mind-body dualism of most rehab approaches. By leveraging the most cutting-edge methodologies in rehabilitation, Atlantis therapists can now implement dual-tasking, optimal motor learning, gamified rehab, and target-based movement to any need, from post-operative knee surgeries to traumatic brain injuries.


SMARTfit’s pre-designed programming offers easy-to-access activities for all of our patient population including:


- Seniors with Balance and Gait Issues

- Concussion Patients

- Stroke Patients

- Parkinson’s Disease Patients

- Patients with Movement Disorders

- Patients on the Autism Spectrum

- Anyone Looking to Improve Cognitive Abilities

SMARTfit Positions Itself to Be at the Forefront of the Global Cognitive Assessment and Training Market

3 months ago

CAMARILLO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, March 16, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- With the global cognitive assessment and training market projected to grow over 600% by 2028, SMARTfit Inc., a technology platform focused on training the brain and body together sets its eyes on capturing a significant portion of this multi-billion dollar market opportunity with its unique blend of gamified, customizable and scalable training programs.


Already in over 600 locations in 14 countries, SMARTfit is targeting neuro rehabilitation, physical therapy, active aging, senior care, fitness, and human performance training facilities which are all part of this same, fast-growing market.


The idea is simple – The brain and body can be trained to work more effectively together using new gamified SMARTfit technology, which enhances cognitive function, physical mobility, and overall performance.


The results are compelling – reduced fall risk, improved daily activity function and rehab outcomes, quicker athletes, superior soldiers, and more.


Implementation is easy with SMARTfit’s evidence-based gamified technology and programming.


SMARTfit founder and CEO Cathi Lamberti explains: “At the start, we quickly realized the challenge of capturing the reaction time of the fastest humans in a 360-degree playing environment. We realized there was no operating system fast enough to achieve this on an affordable computer processor.


SMARTfit technology had to fully engage the very fastest performers as well as the most frail without ever under-challenging or overwhelming either. It had to be adaptable to cognitive and physical input ranging from a single person to a team in a group training environment. It is reminiscent of Microsoft having to create the Windows operating system before it could offer MS Office. To ensure SMARTfit’s solutions could be affordable, a major challenge to SMARTfit’s engineers was to enable a micro-computer to achieve results previously available only with a costly supercomputer. They also had to capture individual personal performance data for baseline and progress-tracking purposes in a 360-degree training arena with up fifty participants. ”


Lamberti continues: “Today we are excited to affirm that these challenges have been met, and have created a strong and versatile foundation for today’s SMARTfit products, as well as for those planned for the future. Our decision in 2012 to create our own operating system rather than trying to adapt to existing ones proved essential to our success today.


SMARTfit is a disruptor to human training programs. Our choice to launch our fundraising campaign on StartEngine is also a disruptor as it allows us to bypass venture capital in order to better protect the interests of our founding shareholders. SMARTfit’s technology and product lines are complete and the concept has been proven in over 600 rehab, retirement and performance facilities, now allowing incoming investments to go toward funding our growth.”


SMARTfit develops gamified technology with interactive programming that enhances cognitive function, physical mobility, and overall human performance by training the brain and body to work more effectively together. Applications for all ages and abilities include neuro rehabilitation, physical therapy, active aging, assisted living, functional fitness, tactical training, youth fitness and learning, and sports performance.

This proven approach improves results for a variety of rehab, wellness, and human performance applications. It’s perfect for concussion rehab.


Banner – University Sports Medicine and Concussion Specialists use SMARTfit as a key component of their comprehensive approach to concussion care. They provide baseline concussion testing for children and adults to identify neurocognitive, balance, fine-motor and visual integration challenges.


“SMARTfit is a smart choice,” says Elizabeth McQueary, OT, and Concussion Specialist. “I really enjoy this tool. I use it every day with almost all of my patients. They love it! Some refuse to leave without working out on SMARTfit. It is a great tool that advances otherwise basic care plans and makes it more engaging and motivating for patients.


I use it for patients from all age groups. My youngest patient is 7 and my oldest is 70. It is so versatile and maximizes my ability to treat in the short time available. I use my iPad to choose programming and I can easily change things up as I go. It gives the patient insight into how they are doing because you can track results and show how they perform one day to the next.


I find SMARTfit’s Dual-Task Cost tests and retests helpful as a great way to track, objectively, how a patient is progressing and how they improve over time. They are a great time saver to print out data that can support the benefits of the treatment and assist in effective and clear documentation.


SMARTfit is wonderful. I can use it in so many different ways and it is a great tool in my clinic.”

USC Research Team Completes 3-year Pilot Study on Parkinson Disease Using SMARTfit

4 months ago

CAMARILLO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, February 22, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Exercise and physical therapy (PT) have become central features of the treatment for Parkinson’s Disease (PD) and is considered disease-modifying. A University of Southern California (USC) study is the first to evaluate the feasibility of employing an innovative gamified training platform for PD https://www.mdpi.com/1660-4601/18/23/12384/ . The platform, SMARTfit, facilitates visual-tactile interaction and is ideal for dual-task training. The study was co-led by Dr. Charles Liu and Dr. Beth Fisher and was a collaboration between the USC’s Neurorestoration Center and the Division of Biokinesiology and Physical Therapy.


“Our SMARTfit technology is focused on the entire spectrum of human health and brain-body fitness,” said Cathi Lamberti, CEO of SMARTfit Inc. “This USC Neurorestoration Center-PT Biokinesiology study provides initial evidence that SMARTfit-based dual-task therapy may be better for Parkinson’s Disease patients compared with traditional single-task PT delivered by excellent therapists. Furthermore, we provide a solution that is both economical and scalable. SMARTfit is currently working with and supporting an estimated 600 sites in 14 countries where early adopters have tested many aspects of the technology.”


Dr Charles Liu, Director of the USC Neurorestoration Center, explains why he focused on Parkinson’s Disease for this research: "Many researchers have established the immense value of physical therapy for Parkinson's Disease, including the coauthors of this paper. In fact, PT has become an essential component of PD treatment. However, good physical therapy is often not available to large numbers of PD patients, and this has been exacerbated by the COVID-19 global pandemic.


In this study, we wanted to explore the feasibility of using a novel device called SMARTfit as a tool for therapists to use dual-task cognitively engaged training in treating PD patients. Although the study included only a small cohort of patients, the results were quite promising, showing that dual-task training using SMARTfit may be better than single task standard PT. Furthermore, SMARTfit dual-task training can be delivered by the therapist in a physical distancing way. We look forward to exploring this concept further."


In announcing the results of the study, Dr. Beth Fisher, Professor of Clinical Physical Therapy and well-known for her work on PD, emphasized: “It’s all about practice, practice, practice, and SMARTfit is an efficient way to accomplish this.”


The study clearly demonstrated the feasibility and safety of using SMARTfit to deliver gamified dual-task training to PD patients. Furthermore, more patients in the small cohort studied had greater improvements in the Unified Parkinson’s Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS) scores with SMARTfit’s gamified dual-task raining compared to a conventional well-designed single-task therapy program. The research team is conducting additional studies to further explore the benefits of SMARTfit for a variety of indications that benefit from physical therapy.

4 months ago

CAMARILLO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, February 15, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- SMARTfit Inc., a technology company dedicated to developing, enhancing, and preserving brain health and physical performance in everyone, regardless of age or ability, announced its launch of a Regulation CF capital raise via StartEngine and has reached its preliminary goals in the first week.


 


"We’re very excited to offer our community the ability to make an early-stage investment in SMARTfit,” said Cathi Lamberti, SMARTfit Founder and CEO. “Unlike traditional venture-capital raises, StartEngine’s platform allows small investors to participate in and benefit from the company’s mission by purchasing shares in SMARTfit for as little as $280.”


SMARTfit’s proprietary technology provides brain-body training solutions that simulate how humans function in real life. Our unique technology was created to appeal to the ‘kid in all of us’ by engaging people to participate and continue practicing. Our technology then measures, tracks, scales, motivates and validates results so that clients and their therapists or trainers can ensure the effectiveness of their training.


“As hunter-gatherers we humans evolved to move but beginning with the industrial revolution the need to move has steadily declined. The neurological consequences of this loss are fast becoming a leading cause of illness and loss of physical functionality. SMARTfit is dedicated to the conviction that YOUR BRAIN MATTERS!”, continued Ms. Lamberti.


SMARTfit's solutions are already being used in approximately 600 sites in 14 countries. SMARTfit addresses numerous populations and conditions including independent and assisted living, physical and occupational therapy, neuro-rehab (stroke, Parkinson's, concussion, autism spectrum), sports performance, military training, and youth programs.


Added Dr. Mike Studer, world renowned expert in dual tasking and developer of SMARTfit’s brain-body baseline assessment, “SMARTfit is the only technology that can scale cognitive demand while executing a wide variety of physical movements and skills. This produces optimum results for neuroplasticity and improved brain-body performance, with applications for new learning, prevention, and recovery.”.
