Posit Science Supplies Brain Fitness Exercises for New AARP Service

Posit Science, the brain fitness company, announced it is supplying online exercises through its BrainHQ platform to AARP for a new AARP service called "AARP Brain Fitness powered by BrainHQ. The exercises on AARP Brain Fitness powered by BrainHQ were developed by a global consortium of scientists and have been shown effective in multiple NIH-funded university-based trials, resulting in some 70 peer-reviewed articles in science and medical journals on user benefits. Those benefits for healthy aging include gains in memory, attention and processing speed, as well as in multiple standard measures of quality of life. The BrainHQ platform currently offers 20 exercises. Each exercise continuously adjusts and customizes to each user to optimize benefits. Users can play for as little as a minute at a time or for much longer periods. While based on serious science, the exercises are configured in a game-like format, and users can invite friends and family into the offering to share the experience of sharpening one's brain. AARP Brain Fitness powered by BrainHQ is available to anyone; participants can access four of the exercises for free. In addition, AARP members currently get a one-week free trial of all 20 exercises and a special discounted price on a full subscription, with pricing that works out to as low as $5 per month for those who buy the annual $60 subscription, or $9 for those who subscribe month-to month. Non-members of AARP can also use AARP Brain Fitness powered by BrainHQ, but without the discount.
