Positive Outcomes via Neuroscience & Technology

Advanced Simulation Therapy integrates advanced simulation equipment and virtual interactive tasking software which improves neuromuscular function, stimulates autonomic nervous system response, fosters neural plasticity and promotes adult neurogenesis to optimize performance of brain functions. Advanced Simulation Therapy has multiple applications with positive outcomes for everyone within our population from Active Daily Living to Elite Athletic Development. Therapeutic application of Advanced Simulation Therapy includes a multitude of Neurological Disorders by providing a non-invasive, drugless therapy that enhances biological and physiological function. Advanced Simulation Therapy may help to delay, retard and mitigate symptoms of several neurological disorders associated with a variety of brain disorders and neurological conditions.

 

Interactive Tasking with Active Tactile Feedback and QEEG Brain Mapping, allows us to quantify the power, amount, distribution and ratio of various brain waves. To conduct the test, we place a cap on the individual's head. The cap contains sensors that measure brainwaves of various frequencies. This assists our staff in understanding how the brain is functioning. Delta Frequency – this is slowest frequency which is dominant when we sleep. If there is too much activity in the delta frequency, there are problems with motivation, the ability to focus and maintain attention. ADD sufferers will exhibit heavy activity in this frequency. Theta Frequency – is a slow frequency that is present between sleep and wakefulness. Too little activity can lead to hyperactivity. However, too much activity can lead to inattentiveness. Alpha Frequency – is one of the brain's most important frequencies because it is a medium frequency that allows the individual to feel relaxed but alert. It enables individuals to accomplish tasks easily. Reduced amounts of alpha frequency cause worry, insomnia and an inability to effectively complete tasks which are common complaints of ADD sufferers. Beta Frequency – is a medium fast frequency which is dominant when we are concentrating. We use this frequency to process information, problem solve and make solid judgments. Reduced activity in this area is associated with the ADD symptoms of inability to sustain attention and complete tasks. High Beta Frequency – is a fast frequency. It is used when we process high level information. A good memory comes from a healthy level of high beta frequency. An elevated level of high beta causes hyperactivity and distractibility. Healthy individuals have a balanced level of activity in each of the frequencies. Excessive or severely decreased levels cause problems with attention, hyperactivity and mood regulation. We explore slow cortical potentials, evoked potentials and reaction time and combine EEG with physiological biofeedback mechanism with variable impact active tactile feedback, interactive tasking software and individualized progression protocols to illicit quicker recovery time, improved rehabilitation response and optimal individual performance.

 

AST Matrix Progression Protocol is a proprietary methodological process that delivers individualized performance, recovery and rehabilitation. The AST Matrix uses an AST Performance Rating to determine an individuals progress and optimal deviation average on a scale of 1 to 5. Our goal is to bring all of our clients to the top end of the scale and maintain a 4 or 5 AST Performance Rating.
