Testimonials

During SMARTFit’s development phase, the SMARTfit team worked with various universities and industry recognized clinical experts who assisted with the development and refinement of the programming.  

The attached video includes extracts from some of these experts where they explain why they chose to be part of SMARTfit’s creation.  

Rehab

“SMARTfit is the only technology 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.”
Dr Mike Studer
DPT, world renowned expert in dual tasking.
“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. This solves the big missing part in rehab because we want carryover onto the field. SMARTfit is a great tool to test if this is happening before they return to play”
Dr. Chris Powers
PhD, PT, FACSM, USC Professor, Director, Biokinesiology Program,
Co-Director, Biomechanics Research Lab - Movement Performance Institute
“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.”
Dr. Beth Fisher
PhD, PT, FAPTA, Professor of Clinical Physical Therapy, USC
“SMARTfit is an incredibly engineered machine that can basically mimic any kind of neurocognitive test. It also brings in the capacity to do whole body movements in exercise in conjunction with it. You can look at dual task performance how much this alters cognitive ability while moving so it has real potential an assessment tool for alterations for neurocognitive function. It enormous potential as a treatment or rehabilitation device in which you can combine exercise, attention, cognitive testing and have fun while doing it which will work so much better than other alternatives. ”
Martin Teicher
MD, PhD, Associate Professor of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School
“Rehabilitating the body during movement is one thing, but with SMARTfit we can integrate cognitive, motor, and functional movements to stimulate neuroplasticity. SMARTfit has created interactive games that bring together cognitive dual-tasking with functional balance and movement.”
Jane Mead
PT. DPT, MS - Fyzical Therapy and Balance Centers - Glendale, CA
“Using the various activities, our kids are able to work on a variety of skills. Their reaction times and accuracy to hit the targets greatly improve over consecutive trials, demonstrating motor learning and quickened moto responses. We are able to work on static and dynamic postural responses, balance, and proximal stability crucial for participa- tion in playground games and Physical Education classes.”
Kimberly Koretoff
OTD, OTR/L, SWC, CAS
“SMARTfit is a smart choice! My patients love it and some refuse to leave without working out on it. It is a great tool as it 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."
Elizabeth McQueary
OT, Banner Sports Medicine and Concussion Center - Phoenix, AZ

Performance/Fitness

“At the Pacific Institute of Neuro Technology, we have found that SMARTfit can provide a turnkey solution to deliver a variety of training activities such as strength, balance, agility, mobility, and neuromotor all in one through a single technology. At its core, SMARTfit’s multimodal training incorporates scalable cognitive load through its turnkey programming for individuals at different stages of function offering both physical and cognitive engagement in different types of activities and we are seeing people have fun.”

“I see SMARTfit as a way for elite athletes to break through performance plateaus and develop the vital underly- ing reaction and motor skills for sports. More importantly, it helps to develop efficient on-the-spot mental process- ing which is great for sports as well as all high-pressure professions such as business, military and policing. This platform is limitless.”

"I have been working out on SMARTfit for 3 years and it has changed my life. It creates the engagement and demand that makes it all happen. I often I start with the intention to get in a few minutes' workout. Invariably, it turns out to an hour because it's fun. It is so engaging and fun time flies when I'm working out. I can feel the difference in my daily life. My processing feels quicker and I feel more confident about my ability to take care of myself as I age."
Leslie
Retired School Teacher
“Twelve weeks ago, my friends dragged me to the YMCA. I did not want to carry that six-pound ball all over the place or stand on one foot, looking like a fool. But halfway through the first class on SMARTfit, I was too busy laughing, sweat- ing, and playing with my friends to think about any of that. And now, 12 weeks later, I can stand on one foot without being afraid of falling, I can walk farther than I could five years ago, and I have a new group of friends who laugh with me and support me.”

Senior Living

“Lifestyle recommendations, purposeful engagement, and graded challenges are critical to the successful implementation of personalized brain health programming. So thrilled to have SMARTfit technology AND the brains of Dr. Rob Winningham as innovative partners.”

“SMARTfit can improve executive functioning better than physical exercise alone or cognitive alone through dual tasking. The research supports that, and, if we can improve executive functioning that generalizes to things that have never been trained. This includes the ability to create a new memory, ability to pay attention, ability to inhibit behavior, problem solving and reasoning.”
Dr Rob Winningham
Phd. Neuroscience, Published Author, Western Oregon University.

We incorporated SMARTfit into our BRAINHealth Program to help build routines that prevent, delay or reduce cognitive decline and memory loss by training the brain and body to work together more efficiently. Every participant in the BRAIN- Health Program has shown improvements in cognitive processing and motor neurocompetence. SMARTfit tracks changes and improvements. This data is significant to the trainer in selecting the appropriate activities to meet the participant needs. The SMARTfit System is also fun, further motivating participants to gain improvements in their cognitive and motor skills.”
