Cogmed JM/ RM/ QM: Brain Training Product Review Survey

As part of our ongo­ing mar­ket research we’d like to ask past and cur­rent users of Cogmed prod­ucts to share their expe­ri­ence with us via this 3‑question anony­mous sur­vey. Please take this sur­vey if you have used a Cogmed prod­uct your­self or have seen some­one else use it.

Please note that we do not endorse this prod­uct (or any oth­er) or any of the claims below. We inde­pen­dent­ly track and ana­lyze emerg­ing brain/ cog­ni­tive sci­ence, tech­nol­o­gy and inno­va­tion, and their real-world appli­ca­tions. This sur­vey helps us learn more about the latter.

Com­pa­ny name: Cogmed.

Com­pa­ny descrip­tion (in their own words, in their own web­site): “Cogmed is the leader in evi­dence-based train­ing solu­tions for improved cog­ni­tive per­for­mance. Cogmed cre­ates, val­i­dates, and mar­kets prod­ucts for indi­vid­u­als of all age lev­els allow­ing them to unlock their nat­ur­al cog­ni­tive abil­i­ties by train­ing their brain. We believe that care­ful­ly designed, sci­en­tif­i­cal­ly test­ed, and pro­fes­sion­al­ly sup­port­ed cog­ni­tive train­ing is trans­form­ing the way peo­ple of all abil­i­ties pre­pare for suc­cess. Cogmed plays a key role in this rad­i­cal change in our under­stand­ing of how cog­ni­tive chal­lenges can be over­come. The evi­dence-based cog­ni­tive train­ing field is based on the prin­ci­ples of neuroplasticity.”

Main prod­uct name/s: Cogmed JM — for pre-school­ers; Cogmed RM — for school age; Cogmed QM — for adults.

Prod­uct descrip­tion (in their own words, in their own web­site): “Cogmed Work­ing Mem­o­ry Train­ing is a com­put­er-based solu­tion for atten­tion prob­lems caused by poor work­ing mem­o­ry. Cogmed Work­ing Mem­o­ry Train­ing is built around three age-spe­cif­ic soft­ware appli­ca­tions. Each pro­gram is proven to improve work­ing mem­o­ry and strength­en exec­u­tive func­tions. The train­ing con­sists of a spe­cif­ic set of work­ing mem­o­ry tasks that are per­formed on a com­put­er, at school, at home, or the user’s place of choice, where the dif­fi­cul­ty lev­el is adjust­ed accord­ing to a high­ly sen­si­tive and spe­cif­ic algo­rithm. Each user is required to com­plete eight exer­cis­es every day, tak­ing about 30–45 min­utes for the entire ses­sion. This is done for five days a week over five weeks. Dur­ing train­ing, the user’s per­for­mance is tracked online and can be viewed by the user and his/her Cogmed Coach who com­mu­ni­cates with the user through­out the five weeks to assist him/her through the pro­gram. All the prod­ucts share the same under­ly­ing design and algo­rithms – the dif­fer­ences are in the user interface.”
