Neurotechnology that Improves Executive Function
Play Attention uses NASA-inspired technology that has been helping children and adults improve executive function and self-regulation for almost 30 years. The Body Wave Armband is the first device of its kind to measure brainwaves through the skin— not wearing a bulky helmet with electrodes. We use video games (aka cognitive exercises) to help you increase your concentration and self-regulation and decrease distractibility. All you do is lightly strap on the Body Wave Armband monitor and play games with the power of your mind—no controller! This advanced neurotechnology is based on neuroplasticity and backed by research conducted by Tufts University School of Medicine. The key to this unique patented technology is that it provides immediate and continuous feedback to help you create new neural pathways. A peer-reviewed article published by Tufts University in 2013 states, “Parents of children who received neurofeedback (NF) training reported significant improvements in attention and executive functioning, showing that this intervention holds promise as a treatment intervention for children with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).”
The Center for Executive Function at Healthy Minds is the first Certified Provider of Play Attention in the state of Georgia, and one of only six Certified Providers in the U.S.
