Think faster on your feet
CLOCK YOURSELF = Physical exercise + cognitive exercise (simultaneously) x SPEED
When our balance fails us we need to react with a quick step in an unanticipated direction. This is as true for athletes as it is for the elderly.
Designed by an Australian physiotherapist and based on the best available evidence from the realms of cognitive science, sports science and falls prevention, CLOCK YOURSELF introduces physical exercises with cognitive exercises, simultaneously, to train psychomotor speed.
All five levels of CLOCK YOURSELF activities are based around an imaginary clock face beneath your feet, so you have 12 intuitive co-ordinates / reference points to step to without needing to wire up mats or sensors.
To set up all you need is about 2m x 2m of space and a smartphone or tablet with functioning audio.
To Clock Yourself means to “clock” your own brain. It guides you to reach your fullest potential in each activity, in a measurable way so that you notice the improvements in your cognitive processing speed and reaction times.

Comes with safety considerations for fallers. Nice progression through the different levels. Adaptable for different levels of impairment from standing with upper limb support to high level cardio/balance.
