Seattle, WA (PRWEB) October 9, 2008
CogniFit, Ltd., the leading producer of personalized brain fitness programs, announced today that it has been chosen by Aging with Grace™, a national eldercare management company, to be the exclusive provider of brain fitness programs to its members, business partners and affiliates. CogniFit has the only online brain fitness program that gives users an assessment of their cognitive functions, and then personalizes the computer-based training depending on each user's needs.
"We're excited that Aging with Grace selected our CogniFit Brain Fitness program to offer to its customers," said Shlomo Breznitz, Ph.D., founder and president of CogniFit. "Neuroscience has recently revealed the brain's elasticity; that something can be done to save the mind from age-related decline. This scientifically-validated product will help Aging with Grace members to lead healthy and active lives."
CogniFit's Brain Fitness program makes an assessment of a user's current brain fitness across 14 key cognitive abilities such as short-term memory, attention skills and perceptual skills, and then creates a personalized exercise program based on the user's results. Each user's exercise program is tailored to improve those abilities that are most in need. This is done through a series of 20-minute exercises (three times per week) that are fun and quick to do. By improving basic brain functions, CogniFit products have the potential to dramatically lower the cost of workers' compensation and health insurance premiums.
CogniFit will provide special introductory pricing on its products to Aging with Grace members. Initially, these members will have access to the CogniFit Brain Fitness application, and other CogniFit programs will be made available as they are brought online.
"We are impressed by how much scientific research went into developing the CogniFit programs to ensure they are as targeted and effective as possible," said Patricia Grace, founder and CEO of Aging with Grace. "Our partnership with CogniFit will help us share this remarkable technology with our members, partners and affiliates to enhance the quality of life for aging adults."
