HAPPYneuron Launches 'Vital' Brain Gym: Cognitive Exercises within SCAN Health Plan's Mobile Resource Center for Seniors
Date:3/16/2010

More than 20 Free Brain Training Games for Continued Cognitive Health

Mountain View and Long Beach, CA (PRWEB) March 16, 2010 -- HAPPYneuron, Inc., a leading provider of brain fitness solutions, in collaboration with SCAN Health Plan, today debuted its new 'Vital' brain gym. The brain gym is a key feature available on-board SCAN's new SCAN Van, the nation's first mobile resource center built specifically for seniors and caregivers. Based on scientifically developed, entertaining games targeting brain fitness, the Vital brain gym adds engaging, health-focused fun to the SCAN Van's educational resources and other senior-focused on-board activities.

The brain gym consists of more than 20 brain training games, each scientifically designed to target one or more of the 5 major cognitive functions of memory, language, attention, visual spatial skills and executive function. The HAPPYneuron Vital online brain gym is specially designed with seniors in mind, including large buttons for visual ease, easier games, no time pressure and other hits and tips to encourage the game play activity.

Delivered through the SCAN Van's wi-fi network to the on-board computers, the brain gym offers seniors the opportunity to educate themselves about the importance of brain stimulation in maintaining a vital and healthy brain with age. Seniors can take advantage of the Vital brain gym and the rest of the SCAN Van's resources at no cost.

"The Vital brain gym is engaging, educational and entertaining - a perfect addition to the SCAN Van," said Sherry Stanislaw, vice president of operations at SCAN. "Specifically targeted at promoting the mental health of the senior community, HAPPYneuron is helping us deliver important health resources directly to seniors within their communities."

The new SCAN Van offers easily-accessible aging and health resources (in hard copy and online) to seniors interested in learning more about themselves and community services. Community experts onboard provide guidance and assistance and teach classes, often leveraging a 52-inch exterior LCD monitor and audio system for presentations to larger groups.

"SCAN is making a positive impact on the lives of seniors and caregivers, a goal we share at HAPPYneuron," said HAPPYneuron CEO Laura Fay. "With the SCAN Van, we can get our brain fitness platform on the road and share the educational experience with seniors in the communities that SCAN Health Plan serves."

According to the Alzheimer's Association, as many as 5.3 million people in the U.S. live with Alzheimer's disease. Engaging in a brain healthy lifestyle that includes cross functional stimulation has been clinically proven to defer brain decline, dementia and Alzheimer's. Regular brain exercise is critical to aging well and living independently for as long as possible.
