A recent AARP survey reports 9 in 10 people say brain health is important, but few know how to maintain it. BrainHQ is an easy way to make brain health a priority. Our brains are at their peak performance at age 27, but through continual learning and challenge we can help remodel our brains and function maximally, so we can lead the life we want.
BrainHQ is an online suite of 27 exercises with 840+ levels of training organized around the 6 core cognitive areas of Attention, Brain Speed, Memory, People Skills, Intelligence and Navigation. Exercises are delivered in short 2 minute or less segments, adapting speed and delivery to your performance. A private, personal dashboard visualizes your performance and provides feedback and suggestions on areas of focus.
Through training you too can gain 10 years improvement in memory, experience increased visual and auditory processing, improve reaction time, and even decrease medical costs.
Get started by creating your private account with BrainHQ, and light up your brain. Training is available online, or by downloading an app to your iPhone or iPad. The Android app is under development.
