Our Next Gen Brain Performance Solution
Screening high performers for visual processing deficits provides a deeper understanding of their cognitive abilities, while accurately measuring learning capabilities.
Leveraging Artificial Intelligence (AI), eye movement biomarkers can reveal the real time status of the brain, and if compromised by fatigue leading to sub-optimal performance.
Once deficits are uncovered, immersive training environments provided in Virtual Reality (VR) can improve cognition, leading to optimization during work or play.
PRO-SYNC identifies visual processing deficits and quantifies barriers to peak brain performance, aggregating measures into a numeric Performance Index Rating (PIR).
The PIR is a combined value of all cognitive domains tested and scored from 0-100. The PIR can reflect a singular test date or represent the average performance over a custom interval chosen by the user.
PIR scores can be compared against past performance ratings, or against a specific population of performers. For example, an athletes performance can be compared against the performance of other athletes among the same position over time.
The Readiness Indicator identifies cognitive degradation (i.e. a tired brain) through the identification of distinct eye movement biomarkers.
These markers are captured through a novel AI model, and have been shown to decrease physical performance and increase the risk of injury.
After the screening is concluded, a binary indicator of positive (+) or negative (-) immediately appears, highlighting the presence or absence of the biomarkers of fatigue.
PRO-SYNC provides various training environments, in Virtual Reality, to improve and optimize key cognitive domains of brain performance.
Deficits identified during the screening process can be up-skilled and remediated in immersive virtual experiences.
Cognition can be optimized through measurement of real time visual information processing, and progressed based on user goals.
Due to its mobile platform, training can be completed anytime, anywhere!
The PRO-SYNC solution is an Extended Reality (XR) based screening, monitoring, and training platform for optimizing cognition. It uses brief, non-invasive eye movement tests to quantify visual processing performance, AI to capture biomarkers of central fatigue, and immersive trainings to improve deficits known to increase risk and degrade performance.
The biomarkers captured in PRO-SYNC have been validated in numerous studies we have published on fatigue and sleep deprivation. In these studies, we have been able to differentiate the “fatigue signature” from other biomarkers related to cognitive impairment and other neurological conditions.
Following these studies, the key elements of PRO-SYNC were utilized in a multi year trial among a handful of professional sports teams. There, the screening and fatigue monitoring elements were independently validated as predictors of athletic performance. For example, there is an established correlation prospectively between cognitive fatigue measures and degraded on court performance in professional basketball players.
Additional studies are underway to compare our fatigue signature against the fatigue measures of various wearable technologies, and against blood based inflammatory markers.
PRO-SYNC can be used in a number of ways. First, it provides a comprehensive screening to quantify key cognitive domains related to visual processing performance. Second, it can be utilized at various time points to detect the presence of central fatigue, through eye movement biomarkers the system captures and compares against an AI driven model. Third, the deficits uncovered during the screening process can be improved upon through our immersive training environments.
These data are captured and stored as historical performance measures, enabling the performance professional to compare measure over time, and against measures of other athletes.
PRO-SYNC offers ten tests covering seven cognitive domains, each lasting 30 seconds in length. As a result, if you chose to perform them all, the screening would take about five minutes to complete.
The PRO-SYNC results are delivered instantaneously for review. The results can be reviewed as part of a comprehensive report detailing the historical performance of the subject being screened, or the most recent result can found just by searching for the subject’s name.
All results are kept secure with our de-identified cloud server.
All data collected by you is owned by you. We do not access it unless it is requested by you. The data collected can be kept in our cloud, or migrated to another cloud within your organization if you choose.
Additionally, our rest API can transfer data collected to an athlete management system or other database as requested.
Training can be completed over zoom, or in special circumstances, in person as well. After the training is complete, various professional resources are available should you need guidance and/or technical support.
Each purchase includes a fully integrated VR headset, an Android tablet, a durable carrying case for portable use, and various accessories to clean and manage the hardware properly.
