Seattle, Washington (PRWEB) October 8, 2009
CogniFit, Inc., a leading maker of Brain Fitness Software programs (http://www.cognifit.com), announced today that its cognitive training was honored in three categories in the 2009 New Product & Technology Awards. This recognition is presented by the Mature Market Resource Center, a national clearinghouse for the senior market, and is the first awards program of its kind to recognize the most innovative products and services for older adults and their families.
The CogniFit training program received awards in the Fitness, Computer Technology and Prevention/Health Maintenance categories. CogniFit Personal Coach is scientifically proven and validated brain fitness software designed to keep people mentally sharp, healthy and active throughout their lives. The software uses a baseline assessment to define a personalized training program that improves cognitive abilities that are susceptible to aging. Personalization delivers training that targets the users' specific needs, and has been shown to be more effective than other mentally stimulating activities to build cognitive abilities.
CogniFit Personal Coach applies the latest scientific research to brain fitness. Available online, CogniFit Personal Coach includes the Individualized Training System (ITS); a set of sophisticated algorithms that enable the program to assess an individual's cognitive development on an ongoing basis and to adjust the difficulty of training as needed. The software also includes improvement such as expanded personal coaching features and enhanced feedback.
"We are honored that CogniFit was selected as a winner for the 2009 awards in multiple categories," says Amichai Bar Nir, CEO of CogniFit. "Mental sharpness is critical for seniors who want to maintain an active and healthy life as they age. We look forward to helping people maintain their brain fitness with our newest product launches, which will be announced during the AARP Vegas@50+ event."
Entries were judged by a distinguished panel of mature market experts from across the United States for overall excellence of design, content, creativity and relevance to the senior market. Judges considered how appropriate and user-friendly the products are for an older adult audience, including device assembly, set up, and ease-of-use. They also took into account how beneficial the product or technology will be to the user and/or their family and whether the product fills a need within the market.
CogniFit brain fitness software provides an initial baseline assessment of the cognitive abilities that are most affected by aging, before creating personalized training programs. No two training programs are the same. Based on more than 30 years of neuro-scientific research, CogniFit's scientifically validated, patented brain fitness programs are personalized to each user's skills and needs to help enhance their cognitive performance and health.
