Meet Our Scientific Board

Our scientific board has an amazing collection of credentials and include individuals who represent prestigious clinical organizations and are actively working as authorities in their fields of study.

Chief - Charles Y. Liu, PhD, MD

Professor, Neurosurgery, Neurology, and Biomedical Engineering USC Director, USC Neurorestoration Center

“SMARTfit is unique in that endless combinations of cognitive and physical challenges can be presented to each user. Furthermore, IT and big-data ecosystem allows not only tracking of individual progress, but machine-learning and AI algorithms can be applied to fully quantify the neurological phenotype of entire populations and sub-populations and predict the effect of parallel training paradigms on SMARTfit.

In this way, the individual expertise of human virtuosos involved in therapy can be scaled up in almost limitless ways. The applications are of course endless, from neurorestoration to maintenance of wellness. We have a series of validation studies already in process or planned to start in the near future. These include: Quantifying the neurological phenotype; Parkinson’s; Stroke Rehab; and Dementia.”

Martin Teicher, MD, PhD

McLean Hospital: Director, Developmental Biopsychiatry Research Program. Harvard Medical School: Associate Professor of Psychiatry

“SMARTfit is an exciting technology and I’m looking forward to being part of its validation, where I expect to see the assessment as the treatment and the treatment the assessment.”

Beth Fisher, PhD, PT, FAPTA

Professor of Clinical Physical Therapy Director, Neuroplasticity and Imaging Laboratory Division of Biokinesiology and Physical Therapy, University of Southern California

“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.”

Christopher Powers, PhD, PT, FACSM, FAPTA

USC professor, Director, Biokinesiology Program, Co-Director, Biomechanics Research Lab

“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.”
