BrainBike

Designed and used by doctors and neuropsychologists, The BrainBike Powered by NeuroActive and Gamercize offers 22 stimulating exercises to make the brain healthier and better performing.

BrainBike! The complete body and brain work...

NeuroActive BrainBike is powered by patented Gamercize technology.

Gamercize interacts with the BrainBike by simply activating the mouse when you are pedaling then stopping the mouse when you are not. You can pedal at your own pace (fast or slow) to keep the program moving at a comfortable level for the user. This is a key feature on the BrainBike so that the users can fuel their bran and prepare it to start learning as they play a variety of games developed by medical specialists.

Improve your Brain with BrainBike's NeuroActive Software

Developed by a team of neuropsychologists and medical specialists, the Neuroactive® brain-fitness program improves both your brain and your life with a diverse array of fun and easy brain exercises that revitalize every aspect of your cognitive, psychological and physical health. Using state-of-the-art artificial intelligence to customize your training, Neuroactive® stimulates 16 key functions, optimizing your brain for memory, processing speed and vital skills like the ability to remember new faces.

NeuroActive’s® powerful brain-training, anti-aging program helps keep your gray matter sharp and youthful. Based on cutting-edge science, it’s a natural, no-side-effects way of delaying the onset of age-related mental decline and Alzheimer’s.

Think you’re too busy? Just three 15- to 20-minute sessions a week deliver quick, long-lasting results. To save more time, you can even fit NeuroActive® into your cardio workout, maximizing your free time while you optimize your brain!

Neuroactive®, The Scientific Brain-Training Program

The most recent neuroscience confirms it: Like your muscles, your brain can grow stronger, sharper ? even regain its youthful vigor ? no matter what your age. The bad news: like your muscles, too, lack of activity can make your brain slow down and grow weaker. Fortunately, you can fight back with a scientifically-developed brain stimulation program that targets various brain functions to significantly improve its performance.

That’s where we come in.

Developed by Brain Center International in collaboration with medical specialists and neuropsychologists, the NeuroActive® brain training program includes all the elements required for top cognitive, psychological and physical health: brain and physical training, nutrition, emotional balance and lifestyle. NeuroActive® is much more than a sophisticated brain gym limited to memory exercises: It’s a holistic new way of life that unleashes your brain’s full power so you can think, work, play ? in short, live -- better than ever.

What exactly can you expect? The NeuroActive® brain training program is based on the most recent neuroscience, which shows that scientifically-engineered brain training can provide:

  1. A higher performing brain for all ages-slashing years off for older folks
  2. A 20% gain in memory performance
  3. A 20% increase in brain processing speed
  4. Measurable results within weeks, that will last for years

An Ideal Addition to a Regular Exercise Program

Busy schedule? No problem: NeuroActive® was designed to train your brain while you work out! More than just saving time, a combined brain/body session takes advantage of the increased oxygen, glucose, and blood flow to the brain that happen naturally during cardio exercise to help you get more out of your cognitive training. Whether you set up a laptop by your stationary bike at home, or train on a specially-engineered NeuroActive® Bike at one of the growing number of gyms that have partnered with Brain Center America, you will quickly benefit from the mind-body workout synergy that only NeuroActive® offers.

A Complete Brain Gym that Trains 16 Brain Functions

The Scientific Basis of the BrainBike XG Training Program Powered by NeuroActive

Researchers recently proved that the brain has an enormous and often unexploited potential, known as neuroplasticity or cerebral plasticity. Think of your brain as hot plastic waiting to be molded and sculpted. Fortunately, this capacity is always present: at 30, 50, or 75 ? whatever your age.

Neuroplasticity

The great news about neuroplasticity is that we can create and fine-tune programs to allow you to put your brain at your service with more ease than you could ever have imagined. When properly stimulated and nourished, the brain becomes much more supple and efficient. Major functions like short and long-term memory, processing speed and visual discrimination can rejuvenate and become sharper. Even those who have seen their abilities dwindle can regain the brain power they enjoyed 10 years before..

This plasticity of the brain works both ways, though, as it can deteriorate as much as it can improve. A lack of activity can worsen its condition, whereas a program of scientifically adapted brain exercises can increase performance. For this reason, a training program that integrates physiological and mental health must be a part of your way of life. The BrainBike XG NeuroActive brain training program is the key, allowing your brain to perform better, think better, and regenerate itself in a durable way. Neuroplasticity is at the heart of BCA’s new technologies and techniques, which now make it possible to optimize the functioning of your brain. It’s no secret: a healthy brain has always been the key to a healthy life. The good news: with BrainBike, that goal is now within easy reach.

Neuroplasticity and Your Life

Think about it: you are your brain. Treat it well, and your self-esteem, work performance, well-being and overall health and quality of life will thrive. Neglect it, and you’re sunk. Your lifestyle and choices, especially lack of activity both physical and mental, affect your brain’s health. To keep it in tiptop shape and avoid memory loss, brain training with NeuroActive is key.

Improve Your Brain’s Performance and Your Well-being

No matter what your age, you have the ability to optimize your brain fitness. Want a nimbler mind, a top-notch memory? Interested in feeling better and being healthier both physically and mentally? How would you like to be more productive at work? It’s practically guaranteed if you do the fun, easy exercises in our comprehensive NeuroActive program, carefully designed by physicians and neuropsychologists.

The NeuroActive Program was scientifically designed by physicians and neuropsychologists. Its objective is to let you expand your limits and take full advantage of your brain’s potential.

Filling Your "Cognitive Reserve"

You know how they say, "use it or lose it"? That’s never more true than when it comes to your cognitive reserve. If you think of your brain like your car’s main fuel tank, then cognitive reserve is an auxiliary tank. If your car is getting old, the main tank may be rusting or leaking, which can lead to a breakdown. In your body, aging can cause deterioration, memory loss, and reduced capacity in certain parts of the brain, so you may have to access the auxiliary tank of your cognitive reserve. This can actually compensate for decline in other parts of the brain and keep neurons from aging.

Developing and strengthening your neural pathways and synapses keeps them young and healthy and prevents them from dying, and there’s only one proven method for doing this: your brain stimulation. People who perform these types of mental exercises experience less cognitive decline, and can push it off till later in life; they’re also much less likely to develop Alzheimer’s or similar disorders.

Successful Brain Aging

The popular belief that aging inevitably results in loss of capacity is false. Although the brain does decline to some extent in many people, it varies widely from one person to the next. Studies show that 25 to 35 percent of seniors actually achieve similar if not better physical and/or cognitive performance than young adults! Some observers have dubbed this phenomenon “successful aging.” Now some studies are focusing on why people like this experience no decline as they age. What’s their secret -- how are these people different? And can you be like them?

What sets "successful agers" apart is the fact that they’re optimistic, resilient in the face of life’s changes, and have a well developed sense of control. And they’re constantly stimulating their cognitive faculties. You can in fact be like them -- that’s where a brain gym like NeuroActive® comes in.

What is their secret? It seems that what sets apart those who age successfully from other senior's lays in the fact that they are constantly stimulating their cognitive faculties, they are optimistic, are resilient in the face of life’s changes because they can adapt to change. They also have a well developed sense of control.

What conclusion can we draw from all these scientific data? You can counter the effect of aging on the brain and we can tell you how.

Prevent Age-Related Brain Decline and Alzheimer's Disease

The latest scientific studies demonstrate that age-related brain decline isn't inevitable and can even be reversed ? it's even possible to delay conditions such as Alzheimer's. One key study is the Advanced Cognitive Training for Independent and Vital Elderly (ACTIVE) research project, funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Nearly 2,900 senior citizens in various U.S. cities participated in a training program for memory, reasoning, and information-processing speed. After 10 hours of training over six weeks, they showed an improvement in cognitive performance that persisted as long as five years afterward.

The data suggest that in addition to maintaining high levels of brain activity among seniors, brain training can slow Alzheimer's, the devastating disease that affects nearly 8 percent of people older than 65 years and more than 40% of those older than 85.

Although we used to believe that Alzheimer's was essentially in the genes, more recent research suggests that genetics are only 33 percent responsible for triggering the disease. By far the larger culprit is environment, including lack of physical exercise, poor lifestyle choices ? and lack of mental stimulation.

The Myths of Sudoku and Crossword Puzzles as Brain-Savers

Many people think that doing crossword and Sudoku puzzles will do the trick in keeping their brains healthy and warding off Alzheimer's. But research suggests they're probably not enough, for two reasons:

First, they affect only very specific thinking processes. For example, crosswords only train a single brain function, known as semantic memory, out of a total of dozens. So doing Sudoku and crosswords would be like working out only your biceps or abs; these exercises don’t do all that much for the rest of your body.

Secondly, the levels of difficulty in puzzles like these aren’t sufficiently customized. Only exercises that truly challenge you without being too hard can help your brain function move to a higher level.

In short, for an all-around healthy brain and nimble mind, you need a variety of exercises focused on all your functions and designed to push you. NeuroActive® provides exactly this kind of stimulation. Click here to learn how NeuroActive is a complete brain gym.
