SMART Brain Aging, Inc. announced its one-on-one patient intervention program for aging brain health, Brain U Online, now available to adults above age 50 via online subscription and iOS app, Brain U Lite. Five years of clinical trials were carried out with more than 3,000 participants at Harvard Medical School/Boston University School of Medicine to develop this new program.

Brain U Online and Brain U Lite are the world’s first scientific programs for aging adults and those with early-stage dementia. The programs were proven to delay the progression of dementia by up to 2.5 years and mitigate negative cognitive impacts by up to 45 percent when used immediately after physical exercise.

Dr. John DenBoer, geriatric clinical neuropsychologist and researcher is the mastermind behind Brain U Online which features more than 20,0000 exercises focused on aspects such as speech and language, processing speed, executive functioning, memory, attention and concentration. The iOS app, Brain U Lite, compiles numerous exercises for practice and is designed to be used “on the go” whilst exercising or directly afterward.

Brain U Online is more of a program common to therapy which uses novel learning to stimulate areas of the brain that release neuroprotective chemicals, preventing the brain cortex from shrinking, and subsequently helping to delay cognitive impairment. 

Dr. Paul Nussbaum, clinical neuropsychologist and Adjunct Associate Professor in neurological surgery at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine stated “Dr. DenBoer and his team have developed a program, based on many years of research and backed by scientific evidence, that has had a positive impact on improving and preserving the lives of thousands of aging individuals and dementia sufferers.”
