The Press Release on the Mood Elevator

The Press Release on the Study Showing Improved Attention and Behavior in Five Hours

History

The Company:  NeuroTek, LLC, d/b/a Peak Achievement Training®, is a revolutionary performance enhancement technology company that has created the world’s first simple, accurate external interface between the human brain and a PC. The Peak Achievement Trainer® enables human performance improvement by measuring and displaying Focus, Alertness, and Awareness using special add-on computer hardware and software. The company’s proven technology has benefited professional athletes and corporate executives who wanted to excel, as well as children and adults who had attention problems.

The company's predecessor, NeuroTechnology, Inc., also d/b/a Peak Achievement Training®, was formed in 1993. In 1997, it developed new technology to address a well-recognized and unfulfilled market need for peak performance training products, meeting price and performance requirements of professionals and semi-professionals in a wide range of environments.

In 2004, NeuroTek released a completely new software package, the VR Software featuring the ability to record video simultaneously with brainwave measurements to create NeuroVideos of people performing important tasks. This NeuroVideoFeedback™ software also allows any of the Fundamental Dimensions of Mental Processing to control a DVD, CD, animation, or audio file. The Peak Achievement Trainer went wireless the next year, substituting a transmitter and receiver that weighs about two ounces for the interface box, and giving the users freedom of motion and superb electronics.  

On February 24, 2007, NeuroTek, LLC announced the release of the Neureka! Protocol package for the Peak Achievement Trainer. the first in the industry to measure the function of a new brain system that also boosts memory of important new information.  Neureka! also clearly measures a wide variety of positive feelings and the “Aha!” moments of discovery or sudden awareness in the brain.

The American Institute of Stress presented the Peak Achievement Trainer with its Award for Distinction and Innovation on December 31, 2007. Please refer to our press release.   Further information is located on our webpage on stress.  

The Trainer can now measure the Three Fundamental Dimensions of Mental Processing--Focus, Alertness, and Neureka!  In July, 2009, we announced a new product, the Peak BrainHappiness Trainer, incorporating these dimensions.  Several studies have found that Neureka! is also related to positive feelings, such as happiness, love, gratitude, and mindfulness, and possibly to enhanced health.  Further research indicated that training with the Peak BrainHappiness Trainer can enhance these feelings and decrease depressed moods, while improving memory without doing any exercises.  By combining measures of Alertness and Neureka!, the Peak Brain Happiness Trainer can also help create feelings of Excited Happiness

FocusedAlert Training can also teach ADHD children to increase their ability to sustain their attention and improve their behavior faster than other approaches.  A study published in a major EEG journal substantiates the effectiveness of this training in only five hours--twelve sessions performed once a week.  The company holds a patent on this neurofeedback method and has recently filed another patent expanding the use of neurofeedback training to wearable displays such as Google Glass, particularly for the purpose of improving the outcomes of muscle rehabilitation by training the client to focus on the muscles prior to the actual rehabilitation. 

The company is also exploring the use of these three measurements for neuromarketing, the measurement of a group's responses to media messages in order to understand and improve the presentation. 


Our Customers

The two companies have gathered an impressive list of users to their credit, including the David Leadbetter Golf Academy; the 2001 Super Bowl Champions; Olympic Training Centers in the US, Canada, England, China, Norway, Taiwan and Singapore; the US Army's Centers for Enhanced Performance; several champion golfers; Fortune 500 companies; numerous universities and clinicians; the U.S. Office of Personnel Management; and many others.

NeuroTek has licensed its patent on the Focus protocol to NeuroSky, a California company which has sublicensed it to Mattel for its MindFlex toy line, Uncle Milton for the Star Wars Jedi Trainer, and PLX Devices for its XWave headset.

The Technology

The Peak Achievement Trainer® is the first accurate Brain-PC interface designed to analyze the Three Fundamental Dimensions of Mental Processing as well as strengthen and enhance the brain’s recently discovered Executive Attention Network, the site that controls new learning. It provides accurate, understandable interactive information to the user that accelerates the learning process, and precisely indicates performance improvement. This innovative technology improves performance through training Focus, Alertness, and Awareness during practice and/or visualization of particular activities.
 

Interesting Facts

One of golf's master teachers, David Leadbetter, and sport psychologist Robert Winters published an article indicating that their initial studies showed that the Peak Achievement Trainer showed different brainwave patterns for very proficient golfers compared with students and those having trouble with their game.

A training program at a Fortune 500 company was able to double the amount of time that the top 23 executives were able to concentrate in just five sessions. Our data indicates that the Peak Achievement Trainer® may be several times faster than prior approaches. This NeuroTek system is so easy to use that people usually understand how to make the equipment respond by focusing within their first three minute trial. If the user becomes distracted in any way, the Peak Achievement Trainer® senses it and immediately lets them know so that they can focus again. Other instruments typically take 5-10 sessions to create the same level of understanding.
