Press Release (ePRNews.com) - SAN FRANCISCO - Jul 10, 2019 - CogniFit, a global leader in the cognitive testing market, understands the importance of sleep hygiene. Sleep specialists have recently cautioned over the use of sleep devices such as wearable watches and bands as well as nearby devices to track and monitor sleep. Dr. Kelly Baron, from the University of Utah, said that sleep trackers can be helpful however some may be inaccurate and may cause even more sleep problems. Dr. Seema Khosla, medical director of the North Dakota Center for Sleep establishes the importance of understanding sleep technology, including its limitations. According to these researchers, trackers can overestimate the amount of sleep that you get since most of them track movement. Those that track heart rate or breathing may be more complete, however, it is still an estimate. This excess of knowledge and sometimes erroneous information may lead to anxiety regarding sleep quality, which in turn can perpetuate insomnia and further affect cognitive skills.
CogniFit’s main focus is to help adults with insomnia by improving their daily activities, encouraging personal, academic and work relationships through online training. It is not a tracking device, but rather an online platform to help reduce the symptoms of insomnia (reduce the time needed to fall asleep, reduce the number of wake-ups, as well as increase the duration and quality of sleep), reduce the cognitive disturbances associated with insomnia in adults (fatigue, difficulty concentrating, frequent forgetfulness, difficulty processing information) and strengthen other cognitive abilities. A scientific study has proven that CogniFit personalized cognitive training has been able to improve sleep quality and cognitive function in older adults with insomnia through 20-30 minutes a day, three non-consecutive days a week, for 8 weeks.
CogniFit insomnia training lasts approximately 15-20 minutes, although it may vary slightly depending on the person. A minimum of one session a day, three days a week, is recommended. This training is recommended in the morning, therefore, it wouldn’t interfere with your sleeping habits. Each 15-minute training session for adults with insomnia consists of three activities: the first two are cognitive stimulation, and the third is an assessment. In this way, the CogniFit program trains our cognitive state while measuring our progress, which allows a great estimate of how our cognitive skills are being affected by lack of sleep.
CogniFit clinical psychologist Alejandra Salazar says that “the health industry is continuously including new technologies to tackle issues such as sleep disorders, among others. CogniFit keeps in mind the cognitive skills affected by these disorders and encourages training in the morning so that the use of the app or computer does not affect the sleep cycle.”
This insomnia training is suitable for children 7+, adults and seniors that may present some risk factors related to insomnia. Any person can easily use this neuropsychological tool.
