Our Mar­ket Report has received some recent addi­tion­al acco­lades:

In a wide­ly scat­tered and unreg­u­lat­ed field, this clear, cred­i­ble doc­u­ment
is a first-class, pio­neer­ing com­pendi­um that’s like­ly to become indus­try-stan­dard
for all of us in this field. Well done!”
— Eric Jensen, Founder of Jensen Learn­ing Cor­po­ra­tion.

This is the first clear, con­cise and com­pre­hen­sive overview and analy­sis I have seen of Brain Fitness Market Reportthe emerg­ing Brain-Train­ing mar­ket­place. It is a great mar­ket research for every investor, entre­pre­neur, man­ag­er, researcher and oth­ers who seek an under­stand­ing of the sub­ject. Per­son­al­ly, I was wait­ing such a review for quite a while. The Sharp­Brains staff, led by Alvaro Fer­nan­dez, real­ly did a great job here.”

– Dan­ny Dankn­er, CEO, Applied Cog­ni­tive Engi­neer­ing (ACE).

Neu­ro­science is at a cross­roads, and The State of the Brain Fit­ness Soft­ware Mar­ket 2008 by Sharp­Brains, points the way for­ward. Our under­stand­ing of how the brain works is just begin­ning to yield real fruit in the form of prod­ucts that tru­ly improve the func­tion of the brain. This reports gives any­one inter­est­ed in how to under­stand which prod­ucts are tru­ly in a posi­tion to make a dif­fer­ence in brain func­tion, and which mar­kets will be inter­est­ed and prof­itable for such prod­ucts an invalu­able guide. We found the analy­sis clear, pre­cise, loaded with sub­stan­tive insight. One would be fool­hardy not to use this pub­li­ca­tion as the best guide to this mar­ket.”

– Dr. Arthur Lavin, Asso­ciate Clin­i­cal Pro­fes­sor of Pedi­atrics, Case Med­ical School, and Med­ical Direc­tor of A Work­ing Mind.

As we begin the task of devel­op­ing a Brain Fit­ness Cen­ter at our Sun­rise Senior Liv­ing Com­mu­ni­ty, this Brain Fit­ness Mar­ket Report is prov­ing help­ful in numer­ous ways to devel­op our “road map” to nav­i­gate through the maze of infor­ma­tion, myths and con­fu­sion that exists as Brain Fit­ness. It has helped us define a Brain Fit­ness des­ti­na­tion for our com­mu­ni­ty.

  • The accu­rate and unbi­ased infor­ma­tion regard­ing the sci­ence behind “Brain Fit­ness pro­vides the foun­da­tion for edu­cat­ing our res­i­dents.
  • The com­par­isons not­ing sim­i­lar­i­ties, dif­fer­ences, for­mats and expec­ta­tions of avail­able pro­grams assists us in choos­ing the program(s) that are best suit­ed to the indi­vid­ual needs, inter­ests and goals. It helps us stay with­in our bud­get to cre­ate a library of pro­grams and a resource for assist­ing each res­i­dent in find­ing a pro­gram appro­pri­ate for him/her.
  • The inter­views with experts in the field of Brain Health are infor­ma­tive, yet easy to com­pre­hend.
  • The report goes beyond pre­sent­ing basic infor­ma­tion by explor­ing clin­i­cal appli­ca­tions for the present and future. It defines the poten­tial appli­ca­tions for pre­ven­tive health care. The inter­ests, con­fu­sion, gen­er­al­iza­tions, mis­con­cep­tions and expec­ta­tions of con­sumers, edu­ca­tors, health care and insur­ance providers are addressed. It helps clar­i­fy the truths from the myths of brain fit­ness based on the most cur­rent research and knowl­edge.
  • The soft­ware com­pa­ny pro­files are clear and con­cise. The graphs through­out the report are easy to inter­pret.
  • The spe­cif­ic check­list for select­ing brain fit­ness soft­ware helps define the para­me­ters and objec­tives of each pro­gram there­by pro­vid­ing excel­lent guide­lines for match­ing the needs and expec­ta­tions of the user to the appro­pri­ate pro­gram.

For any orga­ni­za­tion con­sid­er­ing Brain Fit­ness Pro­grams and won­der­ing, “But where do we begin?, and “How can we acquire expert advice and pro­ceed to cre­ate a cen­ter that meets the needs of those inter­est­ed in pur­su­ing this activ­i­ty?, The State of The Brain Fit­ness Soft­ware Mar­ket 2008 report pro­vides com­pre­hen­sive and insight­ful answers and frame­works to make informed deci­sions.”

– Dou­glas C. But­tner, Exec­u­tive Direc­tor, The Jef­fer­son Sun­rise Senior Liv­ing.
