A Breakthrough for Seniors’ Memory and Wellness

Now modern science provides an easy way to help seniors and boomers improve their memory, focus, and mood by enhancing their brain function.

This research-based equipment helps you live better without taking additional drugs.  New discoveries about the brain indicate that it can still be improved at any age.  The Peak Brain Happiness Trainer teaches you to re-activate several very basic brain systems, which will improve your thinking and feeling. 
 The Peak BrainHappiness Trainer
Benefits include: 

Ø Better Memory

Ø Enhanced Happiness, Health and Quality of Life

Ø Reduced Depressed Feeling and Melancholy

Ø Better Focus

Ø Fewer Accidents

Ø Better Ability to Conduct Activities of Daily Living

Ø Decreased Stress

This ground-breaking professional/consumer system is the clearest and simplest way to do brainwave biofeedback.  The Peak BrainHappiness Trainer reads the actual brainwaves that are produced during the user’s brain activity by using dry Sensors on a headband and high quality electronics. The software clearly shows (up to) three main dimensions of mental processing on the PC screen: Focus, Alertness, and Neureka!  It demonstrates the real-time changes so users can easily learn to improve these important capacities:

*   It facilitates the ability to improve memory and generate feelings of happiness and satisfaction by activating the Neureka! brain system for processing new learning and rewarding you for making the effort.
*   It teaches you the ability to remain calm and yet go to full Alertness when needed.
*   It improves single-pointed Focus for concentration on a perception, thought or image is improved.  

The Value of Improving a Senior's Independence

Most seniors resist the idea of leaving the home they know for an institutionalized care setting, often putting them into conflict with their caretakers who run out of time, resources or energy.  The other major downside of senior care is the enormous expense.  A recent survey performed by Genworth Insurance found that these costs ranged from a national average of $3,600 per month for assisted living to $7,604 per month for a private room in a nursing facility.  

The Peak BrainHappiness Trainer is a new way to postpone institutionalization and minimize these costs. Most experts accept the idea that it is important to maintain and develop more "cognitive reserve", which is essentially an academic term for enhanced brain power.  Scientists believe that if the brain is functioning at a higher overall level, then the processes of age-related cognitive decline and/or dementia will have a harder time breaking through the more stabilized functional systems.  It will take longer for decline to become evident and the senior will be able to maintain their independence for months or even years more.  The other side of this effect can also be seen as an advantage by many people involved--once their decline begins, it tends to take a more rapid course.  

Several cognitive training systems have become popular lately.  However, the Peak BrainHappiness Trainer is a more powerful solution and a very good investment of time and money for the 50+ population.  It should be more powerful than the cognitive training approach because it actually works at a much more fundamental level of brain function, re-building and enhancing their capacity to focus their attention, keep alert, and learn new material.   These basic abilities will benefit most from being maintained directly and powerfully with neurofeedback, rather than mildly affected by activities that indirectly call for their involvement.  They will, in turn, improve a wide variety of abilities and activities of daily living.   

Clinical Experience Demonstrates Major Improvements

Our system's patented Focus Protocol was a key part of the highly successful Brain Brightening program for seniors at the Univ. of West Florida and the Univ. of Washington, conducted by  Dr. Tom Budzynski.  Tom and his wife Helen, a Professor at the Univ. of Washington, wrote about the remarkable transformations that the program created, improving seniors' memory and cognition, and a "resurgence of abilities in relevant areas of their lives".  They documented the changes by measuring them with the MicroCog, a computerized set of cognitive tests developed at Harvard.  Dr. Budzynski was very well known as one of the founding fathers of biofeedback.  He started the first clinical outpatient biofeedback practice and originated EMG (muscle) biofeedback.  

Improving Basic Brain Function Has Widespread and Lasting Effects

Studies at the University of Louisville by Dr. Tato Sokhadze and collaborators support the idea that memory and happiness are related.  Both are enhanced by Neureka! training and the measured effects are long-lasting—at least four months after finishing.  When yThe Prefrontal Pleasure Centerou learn something new, your brain responds by releasing dopamine, the brain chemical involved in the pleasure circuits of the brain.  Dopamine enhances memory consolidation—transfer of new knowledge to long-term memory--and it makes you feel good as a reward for learning something new.  The Peak BrainHappiness Trainer is the first instrument that can teach users to directly enhance memory and positive feelings by increasing the brainwave output from the Prefrontal Pleasure Center, a part of the brain’s pleasure system involving dopamine. 

Studies indicate that enhancing happiness should also improve future health and success in relationships.  These are huge benefits for seniors. 

Another University of Louisville study, published in Clinical EEG and Neuroscience, showed that training Focus and Alertness decreased the amount of slow brainwaves (delta and theta), which are typically increased with aging and dementia.  Just five hours of training also increased the power of higher frequency brainwaves (alpha and beta) which are typically decreased in aging and dementia.  Although this study was done in youngsters with attention problems, the improvements in attention and brainwaves should also be noted in the senior population, as the Budzynskis observed. 

There are many more studies that support the effectiveness of neurofeedback for attention problems.  In fact, the American Academy of Pediatrics raised their rating of biofeedback and neurofeedback as an intervention for Attention Problems and Hyperactivity to Category 1 "Best Research Support".   

A recent large British study showed that cognitive decline can start as early as 45 years old.  Faster brain activity in those over 45 will not only slow the onset of mental decline, but also lead to better balance and stability, fewer falls, and improved ability to perform Activities of Daily Living.  More ability and confidence leads to greater independence.

Dr. Stanley Krippner, a world-famous psychologist in his 80's and an author of over 25 books, has been happier for many months after just one session: "The happiness that emerged from the session has never left me, and I go back to some of the self-monitoring techniques I used during the session to keep me contented, alert, and positive during each day."  For more information on his experience and a video about the Peak BrainHappiness Trainer, visit this page

To summarize, the Peak BrainHappiness Trainer combines both types of neurofeedback--FocusedAlert to enhance attention, and Neureka! to improve memory and mood.  An add-on product, the Mood Elevator, is based on a study showing remarkable results with treatment-resistant depression.  This instrument does not do anything harmful to the brain. It is not a drug or entrainment. It is training--consciously learning a skill. It simply measures and displays indicators of Focus, Alertness, and Neureka!, so the user can see how to increase them. The ability to control each of the feedback protocols develops very rapidly, typically within the first few minutes.  These methods do directly change the brain’s function at a fundamental level.  Our training is therefore far more powerful and wide-reaching than any brain workout exercise or practice doing a specific activity.  Furthermore, many studies indicate that being happy enhances your future health and success.
