What is BrightBrainer™ BBX?

BrightBrainer BBX is a Class I FDA listed medical device that provides intensive game based motor training and cognitive exercising.

Our custom therapeutic game library targets various motor domain aspects (motor control, speed of movement, endurance, hand-eye coordination, task sequencing) and cognitive domains (executive functions, attention, short term visual and auditory memory, working memory, reading comprehension, dual tasking). Training also benefits the emotive state. The system is mobile and self-contained, it comes with a medical grade high-end computer, large adjustable display and wireless bimanual controllers. Session reports are automatically generated.

Benefits to Clinical Use

BrightBrainer provides an option for patients who reached a plateau, or for those who do no-longer respond to customary therapy. In addition, studies have shown that adding BrightBrainer therapy to standard of care results in higher outcomes over the same time span. BrightBrainer BBX high degree of automation facilitates training by COTAs or PTAs. This provides increase access to care while lowering costs. Let us show you how BrightBrainer BBX can help clinic managers and practitioners.

About Integrative Cognitive Exercising

BrightBrainer BBX is an engaging serious-gaming computer based platform that also engages its user’s whole arm and fingers. Such moderate upper body exercising stimulates additional functions (e.g. blood flow, movement cortex centers, cross connections between lobes). BrightBrainer BBX bimanual nature of exercising allows game playing with increased cognitive load and divided attention.

This combination of stimuli, called Integrated Cognitive Exercising, is what BrightBrainer BBX has been optimized for.

In this context, the BrightBrainer BBX enables:

  • A medicative-free approach to cognitive training;
  • New Behavioral protocol development (e.g. related to successful aging);
  • Research grant generation;

Benefits to the Researcher

Through its serious-gaming interface, BrightBrainer BBX acquires real time movement of both arms and index fingers, stores game performance data and displays objective scores for Cognitive Domain Performances to include:

  • Short term visual and auditory memory
  • Delayed recall of visual and auditory information
  • Executive function /Decision Making
  • Attention – Processing Speed
  • Working memory
  • Language Comprehension


Additionally, the system calculates the total interaction time as well as arm-specific number of repetitions. When plotted over time (multiple sessions) these cognitive domain scores provide an objective way to assess user’s cognitive progress.

A Session Report is automatically generated saving therapist time, while still allowing clinician’s input.
