Why It's Better
BrainCare facilitates better monitoring and recommendations
With BrainCare, patients and their families have access to reports on patient test performance, as well as activity recommendations based on the latest clinical research. Clinicians can more easily provide research-backed recommendations to help patients better track progress.
Research involving tests by NeuroTrax, the company behind BrainCare, has been published in over 75 peer-reviewed scientific articles. In all, over 190 research studies have been performed involving over 28,000 subjects from 16 countries. Also, over 100 international conference presentations have featured our tests. No other brain fitness testing system has as much scientific backing.
BrainCare is based on optimized technology that achieves accurate measurements of response times. That translates to better estimates of how quickly the brain can process and analyze information – a key dimension of brain fitness.
BrainCare is easy to re-administer, making it ideal for tracking longitudinal changes. In addition, there are features to minimize practice effects.
We designed BrainCare tests to work in the “real world" and ensure that accurate data are gathered as long as the testing computer fits the basic technical requirements. For example, our system conducts practice sessions before each test and automatically determines whether a client has adequately mastered the “mouse” buttons and has the visual acuity and color recognition necessary to perform the tests.
No prior computer experience is necessary
As reported in a study involving nearly 3,000 older people, most clients report that our tests are easy to use. This was true even for people with no computer experience.
