Neuro fitness training

In tactical military professions like Air Force pilots, Fighter Controllers, Special Operations Forces, but also civil professions like Pilots, Aircrew, Air Traffic Controllers, Police and Fire Departments, competences like Situational Awareness and fast and accurate decision making during highly stressful situations are of utmost importance. In some cases lives can even depend on it. Such competences, that are absolutely essential for an optimal and safe performance in these type of professions, can be significantly enhanced by specific Perceptual Cognitive training.

Product Description

The Neuro Fitness Training Concept (NFTC) was set up based on the identified increasing need of cognitive abilities in many aspects, whether that would be high dynamic professions like Aviation, Military, Top Managers, Athletes or any other Top Sports or just day-to-day life ranging from elderly people needing to find their way through busy traffic to younger people that need some tools to help them concentrate better at school. Further to that the training methods used by the NFTC have even proven to be very successful in medical situations like Burn-out, Hyperactive Disorder, Dyslexia, Concussion and Rehabilitation in general.

The NFTC has created by integrating three scientifically proven techniques that improve our perceptual cognitive abilities by training our eyes, which are responsible for approximately 80% of our perception, and our brain. The results of this training are astonishing and can be noticed in only a matter of weeks by significantly and rapidly improving quality of life and performance. Your brain’s capacity and performance will literally increase as new so-called “neuro-connections” will be generated in the brain expanding the neuro-network.

When looking at everything we do during the day, even every simple task is preceded by the process as shown in the illustration on the right. First we “Perceive” something with our senses (see, hear, feel, smell, taste) then we “Recognize” it, put it into “Context”, we “Process” the information and then take appropriate “Action” (which can also mean doing nothing at all). Quite interesting enough hardly any attention is paid to this process as usually training is mainly focused on the “Action” part itself. We are convinced that adding this unique concept of Neuro-Fitness to your life will help you perform better, feel better and hence improve your quality of life in a simple and unparalleled way.

Applications
Tactical Professions (Aviation, Military, Police, Fire Services, Emergency Response Teams, etc.)

We offer specialized training for tactical professions that operate in highly dynamic and stressful environments enhancing core competence, situational awareness and performance.

In tactical military professions like Air Force pilots, Fighter Controllers, Special Operations Forces, but also civil professions like Pilots, Aircrew, Air Traffic Controllers, Police and Fire Departments, competences like Situational Awareness and fast and accurate decision making during highly stressful situations are of utmost importance. In some cases lives can even depend on it. Such competences, that are absolutely essential for an optimal and safe performance in these type of professions, can be significantly enhanced by specific Perceptual Cognitive training.

The Perceptual Cognitive training that we offer will lead to increased peripheral vision, enhanced auditive and visual perception and faster processing of information. Decision making is most crucial in stressful situations and it is exactly in those moments that things tend to be overlooked and remain unnoticed. Professionals that have trained to optimize their perceptual cognitive skills will be able to make better decision faster and hence will operate safer and more reliable. In close coordination with our Subject Matter Experts the training will be matched with the exact type of work and environment in order to optimize the results.

Methodology

The Neuro Fitness Training Concept (NFTC) Techniques

The training techniques that we use are scientifically recognized, used under close supervision of highly skilled optometrists and produce astonishing results. The NFTC has integrated three techniques into one unique integrated concept that addresses the full process from perception to action. For each individual method the results that have been achieved in both Canada and the USA are already impressive, but by combining all three and using the specific protocols these results will add up like 1 + 1 + 1 = 5 or maybe even 10 instead of just 3. All methods are fully complementary and have a small overlap in order to ensure smooth transitioning and optimal results. These three techniques are the following.

Vizual Edge
vizualedgeinactionThis computer based training addresses the mechanics of the eyes. Good eye movement, strong eye muscles and an optimal ability to focus will result in improved depth perception, better converging and diverging abilities, simply seeing things better and quicker and being able to track objects better as well. Vizual Edge measures and trains the muscle strength of the outer eye muscles, which stimulates these visual and cognitive effects.

 

 

 

NeuroTracker
neurotrackerThe most revolutionalized and core part of the training is NeuroTracker. Through a seemingly simple technique of presenting objects in an active 3D environment that have to be tracked your ability to perform so-called “multiple object tracking” will improve which actively stimulate the brain and actually will expand your brain’s neuro network by creating new connections. As a result of this you will become sharper, improve your conscious peripheral view, improve your concentration and significantly enhance your focus. Developed by the University of Montreal, NeuroTracker already has quite a track record of proven results and is in use within many professional sports clubs in Canada and the USA as well as being successfully applied for medical purposes like ADHD, Dyslexia, (traumatic) stress, burn-out, etc.

 

Dynavision D2
dynavision-d2-7With the Dynavision D2 the relation between your eye muscle (move ability), cognitive skills and motor skills will be tested, trained and improved. Since “Action” is the final step in the process that starts with perception the HVC methodology ensures an optimal alignment with and swift transitioning into this third part of the integrated concept. Dynavison D2 training is recognized and approved by the American Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and has proven results in various areas ranging from medical (brain injuries, strokes, concentration disorders, etc.) to tactical professions and sports (improving reaction time and peripheral view).

Dynavision D2 thereby completes the full process as mentioned in the introduction and illustrated once more below, including the various areas that the integrated training addresses.

NFTC Manager
Although data is already being stored in the respective systems we have designed a NFTC Manager that collects all data into a central NFTC Database which will enable much better correlation of data and reporting functionality.
