How does BrainGymmer work?
Most of our brain games originated from collaboration with neuroscientists and consist of various psychological studies and exercises. Each game gives you the option to choose whether you want to preview a tutorial. Your score will be saved for every game you play. That score is based on two essential factors when it comes to measuring your cognitive performance, namely your speed and your accuracy.

Brain Fitness Index (BFI)
The Brain Fitness Index (BFI) is a cumulative score that compares your score with the scores of others. It’s comparable to an IQ score. Your BFI measures how well you do compared to others, and how well you perform in the different areas of cognitive ability. You can compare yourself by clicking on "Progress" and clicking "Compare yourself" on the dashboard shown there.

Who uses BrainGymmer?
BrainGymmer was developed as a fun and challenging brain training for adults.
However, everyone can play our brain games and become or stay mentally fit.

BrainGymmer automatically adapts to the game level of the player. As a result, playing our games is suitable for mentally healthy people looking for a way to stay mentally fit, as well as an exercise for patients with brain injury who play our games on their own level.

BrainGymmer is played by people of all ages. Our games, however, are not too childish in terms of design and colors so they are mostly played by adults.

BrainGymmer is also used by various foundations specialized in the guidance of people with non-congenital brain injury. These people who, for instance, suffered a stroke, accident or brain tumor can’t just go back to work or school as if nothing happened. BrainGymmer is regularly used by these people as an exercise method. The BFI helps the supervisors to gain insight into the progress of their clients.

We at BrainGymmer are proud our games help the recovery of those clients, or at the very least help to delay the impact of the brain injury. If you are involved in such an organization and want to use BrainGymmer for your clients please contact us directly.

In recent years, we have built specific functionality in BrainGymmer to support scientific research. BrainGymmer is at the moment being used for research by the University of Amsterdam, VU Medical Center, Calgary University, Maastricht University, Leiden University, The Hague University and Sophia Revalidation.

BrainGymmer is currently being used for research into:

• Cognitive training effects of children with non-congenital brain injury;

• Cognitive training effects of schizophrenia;

• Cognitive training effects after a stroke

The great benefit of using BrainGymmer in scientific research is that the participants like to play our thinking games. 
So they are willing to spend time and finish the research. It’s an effective and easy way for researchers to collect data.

We have supported various scientific studies by setting up experimental and controlled conditions.
