GIVE YOUR BRAIN A BOOST

How Does It Work?

The proprietary Cognitive Boost Technology™ pattern embedded in every Sleeve is designed to optimize neural communications for improved mindful wellness.

Through vibrotactile stimulation, skin receptors are triggered to generate a combination of signals. These signals are processed by the cognitive networks, resulting in scientifically-proven amplified cognitive abilities – just ask Dr. Robert W. Thatcher, Ph.D., whose clinical white paper study showed the benefits of the eSmartr Smart Compression Sleeve after just 20 minutes.

Cognitive boost technology (cbtTM): MINDFUL SOLUTIONS THAT WORK

Cognitive Boost Technology™ is a non-invasive, drug-free approach to naturally improving your cognition, safely helping you to:

      • Focus better
      • Remember more
      • Feel less stressed
      • Stay in the zone

CBT stimulates a specific pattern of nerves in the forearm, creating a signal that the brain translates into improved cognitive function and more mindful wellness.

Better focus when you play, learn, create

PLAY LONGER
Get in the zone faster. Stay in the zone longer. With increased attention and memory, Cognitive Boost Technology delivers a smarter way to minimize outside distractions and keep your head in the game.
LEARN FASTER
Unlock your learning potential and build confidence through increased attention and the ability to retain and process information. For students and businesspeople of all levels, these aspects of mindful wellness are critical in understanding and executing details from written and verbal instructions.
CREATE MORE
Enhance your creative development with mindful solutions. Naturally optimize neural performance with increased attention and processing of information. Cognitive Boost Technology maximizes focus in the moment while limiting outside distractions.

THE CBT NEURO-PATHWAY

Using tactile stimulation, the compression in our sleeves allows the Cognitive Boost Technology pattern to quickly activate receptors in the skin, sending neural signals through the somatosensory pathways to the brain. Our neurology processes this information in three steps.

  • ENCODING

    Sensory Information is activated and encoded by Mechanoreceptor Neurons. Receptors have an integrative relationship in coding sensory information as described by theories of “Sparse Coding" and “Population Coding". Using Tactile Stimulation, Cognitive Boost Technology activates an encoded neuro-signal from nerve receptors on the forearm.

  • FILTERING

    Sensory Information is filtered at the AP of the Brainstem, filtering noise from actionable information. Actionable information is directed to related areas such as Entorhinal Cortex and then Hippocampus and Cerebral Cortex.

  • DECODING

    Entorhinal Cortex helps regulate and decode processes related to Hippocampus and Cerebral Cortex. The “code” from Cognitive Boost Technology may aid in regulating the functions of these designated areas - specifically Executive Function, Attention, Memory, and Information Flow.

EXECUTIVE FUNCTION

WHAT IS IT?
Executive function allows us to experience:

    • Working memory (absorbing information and applying it to accomplish tasks)
    • Cognitive flexibility (mental multitasking, and switching one’s thinking between ideas)
    • inhibitory control (the ability to not do something just because you thought about it).

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
These skills are crucial for learning, problem solving, and processing information!

HOW DOES CBT HELP?
The EEG scans below measure the executive function of the participant’s brain before and after they’ve put on their smart compression sleeves; the lighter colour in the second scan indicates a more efficient function.

ATTENTION NETWORK

WHAT IS IT?
Attention networks direct the mind to focus on a specific object.

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
Your ability to pay attention is partially to blame for how far down this page you’ve made it already. Attention is crucial for listening and learning!

HOW DOES CBT HELP?
The illustrations below show us two things. First, that the EEG scan performed with CBT is less cluttered than without (fewer lines), and that the information being recalled is being done so with increased efficiency (green and yellow vs red and blue lines).

  • Without CBT
  • With CBT

MEMORY NETWORK

WHAT IS IT?
Your working memory allows you to encode, maintain, and manipulate incoming information.

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
When you make decisions based on data, you are using your working memory; it encompasses all well-thought-out decisions!

HOW DOES CBT HELP?
The illustration below indicates a more efficient recall process; the lighter colours on the EEG indicate a stronger power of memory in the test performed with CBT.

  • Without CBT
  • With CBT

INFORMATION FLOW

WHAT IS IT?
Information flow is your brain’s ability to communicate effectively with itself. The speed and efficiency of data moving from one location in the brain to another is information flow.

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
Quicker, more efficient connections lead to faster decisions. Your problem-solving and reflexes can all benefit from quicker thinking.

HOW DOES CBT HELP?
In the illustration below, you can see that the image with CBT indicates a less “congested” flow of information. Fewer lines means fewer impediments as you think critically.

  • With CBT

CLINICAL Study

THE PROOF IS IN THE PATTERN

eSmartr worked with neuroscience leaders at The Applied Neuroscience Research Institute to test, record, and validate the results of Cognitive Boost Technology. Working with 20 subjects and running a variety of brain scans, we observed their cognitive benefits after wearing the eSmartr Sleeve for just 20 minutes. Download Clinical study
