All species on Earth are divided into two categories:
- Those that move which have a brain
- Those that don’t move which do not have a brain
It is generally accepted that movement and having a brain are integrally tied together for many reasons. Historically, this connection was primarily tied to survival, using the executive function of the brain to decide on an action and then the rest of the body/brain executing on the decision whether it was for food, shelter or defense/offense. This Visual-cognitive-sensory-motor interaction provided life with its key tools to evolve.
Over the past hundred years we humans have been developing technologies to do our physical work for us which has resulted in a swing away from this kind of cognitive-motor engagement with life. This is resulting in an explosion of inactivity related health conditions that could threaten our long-term health as a species.
I believe SMARTfit technology can assist by recreating rehab/exercise programs that simulate the way we evolved while also being deliverable in a customizable, scalable, trackable and measurable way to suite each individual regardless of age or ability.
SMARTfit can be used to capture the evidence of conditions, apply appropriate treatment/training, and measure the progress of change related to the interaction between the visual, cognitive and motor functions. This information can also allow researchers to capture the evidence of this interaction at a DNA level which can possibly lead to a breakthrough in understanding the affects of inactivity on human health as well as provide a pathway to scientifically validated solutions.
