NeeuroFIT rolls out in community clubs.
Neeuro, a technology company that specialises in mental wellness, has recently received SkillsFuture accreditation and is currently running NeeuroFIT in over 20 community clubs (see the list below) across Singapore. NeeuroFIT is a mental wellness course that is brought to communities through People’s Association (PA) and Senior Academy.
NeeuroFIT is a series of brain training classes that uses exercises to improve cognitive skills like memory, attention and decision-making. Played together with SenzeBand, a wearable brainwave sensor invented by Neeuro, participants get to monitor their brainwaves to ensure optimal training results. Besides learning about brain fitness and improving their cognitive skills, participants also enjoy spending time with their peers and supporting each other in the training.
NeeuroFIT PA courses range from basic, intermediate as well as advanced courses. Any Singaporean above the age of 25 can use their SkillsFuture credits to pay for the course. The PA course will assist working adults in reducing the risk of cognitive decline, maintain an ideal level of performance, as well as educate them on the importance of brain training. The basic course runs for four sessions, while intermediate and advanced courses run for eight sessions. Each session is 1.5 hours long.
On the other hand, NeeuroFIT for Senior Academy is a core module that runs for three hours per session. The module will help seniors reduce the risk of cognitive decline which could lead to dementia and educate them on the importance of mental wellness. Neeuro explained that a person’s cognitive ability reaches peak performance in their late 20s and from then on, performance will start to decline. It added: “Most people assume that cognitive decline only occurs in their senior years, but that is not the case. It has been shown that brain training can actually help slow down your cognitive decline and help you maintain a higher level of performance for much longer.”
