TBI typically affects a range of cognitive functions, including attention, processing speed, memory, and executive functioning (i.e. decision making), all of which can affect day-to-day functioning. Computerized brain training, as part of a comprehensive rehabilitation plan, has been shown to be effective in treating cognitive symptoms of brain injury and helping individuals regain function.

We should all be concerned about losing our cognitive abilities as we age. Fortunately, advances in neuroscience and computer technology have provided clinicians with options to reduce the rate of age-related cognitive decline. Pushing brain skills to their limits helps to preserve brain processing speed, memory, multitasking, and decision making at any age. Challenging, professionally-monitored programs at Brain Fitness Centers of Florida help individuals of all ages maintain or improve cognitive functions such as memory, attention, and reaction time. This translates to fewer falls, maintaining driving privileges, and greater independence and quality of life.

Upon entering the program, each patient is assessed and has a consultation with the doctor to review their existing issues and areas to improve. Based on this information, individuals are placed in a comprehensive program, specifically designed for each person, focusing on brain exercise, stress management, physical wellness, and nutrition. After several weeks of in-office training, individuals typically continue the program in the comfort of their own home. During this time, our team of clinicians is available for assistance and additional support.
Upon completion of the program, the patient reviews their program and test scores, as well as many other contributing factors, with Dr. Scranton. Management recommendations for the short term are provided. For some, we may ask that the individual continue with the computer-based program for a designated period at home. During this time, our clinicians continue to monitor their progress. If there are any issues with accessing the program, we offer support to help make sure the patient’s continued success is not hindered. Finally, after the patient completes their in-home sessions, they return to the center for reevaluation, receive advice for additional rehab aides, physical and nutritional program changes, and other upgrades from Dr. Scranton and his staff.
