ve functions that are relevant to older adults maintaining everyday abilities, including driving skills. Dr. Ball directs the University of Alabama at Birmingham Center for Research on Applied Gerontology. "That's because all the things that help us maintain our autonomy and independence are critical to healthy aging. Getting InSight out of the lab and into the hands of consumers will improve quality of life and change how we age."

InSight is available to the public for home use from Posit Science, from leading insurers and from clinicians and other authorized providers. A special version for classroom use is being developed for retirement communities, senior centers and adult education facilities. InSight is designed to complement Posit Science's first product, the Brain Fitness Program, which is scientifically proven to speed up and sharpen auditory processing, resulting in improved memory.
