ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE TRAINING
MAXIMIZING FULL PERFORMANCE
ON AND OFF THE FIELD
IMPROVE REACTION TIMES
The improvement of athletic performance training is not a modern ideology. The competitive nature of humans and the desire to increase the physical output of the human body has existed as far back as we know. Most athletic performance training methods seek to improve physical function. They do optimize brain function, but not necessarily in the long run. At Better Brain & Body, our focus is to optimize brain and body function to create lasting improvements to performance capabilities.
We understand that critical components must come together to optimize performance. These components include planning, latency (reaction times), speed, accuracy, endurance, and recovery. At Better Brain & Body, we help athletes and business professionals create an engaging but challenging care plan by testing, analyzing, and treating the brain. We closely examine balance, coordination, reaction time, and sports/job-specific movements to devise a highly targeted, pervasive treatment plan and brain training program for each patient.
We offer treatment methods like the Gyrostim technology to improve performance. The GyroStim is a computer controlled, multi-axis rotational chair. It consists of a stationary base platform, a “u” shaped frame that rotates in the yaw axis, a reinforced chair frame situated inside the “u” frame that rotates in the pitch axis, a safety perimeter around the rotating chair assembly, an arrangement of integrated laser detecting targets distributed around the rotating chair safety perimeter, and a computer/operator station. Its purpose is to provide a wide variety of controlled intensities of sensorimotor challenges during rotational motions in the pitch and yaw axis....and we now offer access to this technology here in Charlotte, NC.
