SMARTfit is conducting clinical study activity in several high value areas within the medical market where SMARTfit’s unique value proposition which includes Baseline Measurement, Custom Protocol Development and Session/Progress Reporting in both Diagnostic and Treatment pathways promises to offer patients meaningful gains in quality of life measures.
Systems have recently been installed at Rancho Los Amigos Rehabilitation Hospital, and Keck Hospitals for USC and McLean Hospital for Harvard Medical School where multiple studies are either in process or going through IRB. Using these results, staff at Rancho, under the supervision of Dr. Charles Liu, plan to assist with developing cinical protocols for treating multiple conditions including Parkinson’s, Stroke, Concussion and Dementia/MCI.

“SMARTfit is an exciting technology and I’m looking forward to being part of its validation, where I expect to see the assessment as the treatment and the treatment the assessment.”

“Everything in Parkinson’s research points to the need for combining cognitive challenges with physical activities – I cannot think of a better way to do that than with SMARTfit.”

“SMARTfit takes the focus of the player off the mechanics and moves it to the external, forcing the brain to solve two problems at the same time. This solves the big missing part in rehab because we want carryover onto the field. SMARTfit is a great tool to test if this is happening before they return to play.”

“I think that positioning SMARTfit as a key medical device will potentially open up many applications. In particular, I am very interested in exploring applications to promote the rehabilitation of children with motor and cognitive impairments.
This will definitely require some thoughts to first move forward with the easiest applications and then with a more inte-grated plan, when there will be a better understanding of the uncountable developments that SMARTfit allows.”
