Forbrain® is an award-winning technology recommended by thousands of SLPs and OTs to improve attention, memory, and language. It is a headset that uses groundbreaking technologies to create an enhanced audio-vocal loop that enables users to improve their speech and attention. Auditory processing is improved using this natural process of auditory feedback. Forbrain® is a bone-conduction headset equipped with a microphone and a dynamic filter. It is a self-practice tool, for users to train on their audio-vocal loop. Forbrain® enhances specific patterns of the voice, and the enhanced voice is delivered instantaneously via bone conduction. Attention, memory, speech, understanding, and processing of sensory information are the essentials of a functioning brain. Together these critical skills are called cognitive abilities. Forbrain® technology is committed to helping children and adults everywhere who have difficulties with these cognitive abilities. Forbrain®'s mission is to enhance an individual's attention, memory, speech, comprehension, reading, and language. Forbrain® is the flagship product of Sound for Life and has inherited its science from the Tomatis Method, the most advanced program in Sound Therapy. When applied in a standalone, the program is 20 Minutes a day for 50 days.
Areas Of Application
Verbal or Short-term memory
Repetitive use of voice exercises and trains brain. These repetitive exercises tap into areas of the Cochlea, which connect through the auditory pathways to verbal and short-term memory. When speak or read aloud using the Forbrain® system, your own voice activates these auditory pathways in brain enabling to access memory more easily. Daily use of Forbrain® supports improved memory.
Attention and Ability to stay on task
Problems with attention often occur because of difficulties with sound perception. 80% of sensory information comes via the ear, and this determines the brain's overall level of alertness and attention. Through heightened bone conduction and the use of the dynamic filter, Forbrain® enhances sound processing and attention. This improves your ability to eliminate distractions, a major cause of inefficiency. Sustained attention allows for clearer thinking, greater productivity, and improved memory.
Concentration and Focus
Does your mind race or work non-stop? Do you find that your thoughts are scattered and it is hard to relax? Through the use of the fine-tuned, high-quality Forbrain® microphone, improved voice clarity and better auditory perception help you stay on task and follow-through to complete activities. Consistent use of Forbrain® improves focus so you can concentrate better throughout the day and follow through on tasks and actions.
Reading and Writing
With greater clarity of sound reception and more efficient processing, comprehension of the written word is greatly improved. This newfound ease of reading stimulates your brain and motivates you to read more. Speaking and reading aloud with the Forbrain® microphone and dynamic filter strengthens your auditory perception, energizing and motivating you. This increased processing ability also stimulates verbal fluency and written expression.
Speech, Pronunciation, and Fluency
Bone conduction provides clarity and sensory integration that improves pronunciation skills. This enhanced awareness and perception of speech is a prerequisite to phonological and linguistic awareness. Bone conduction is critical to the development of the phonological loop, which also plays a role in the storage and retrieval of verbal information. Forbrain® can thus enhance not only auditory verbal memory but inner speech and verbal fluency, too.
Motivation, Self-esteem, and Self-confidence
By enhancing sensory perception, focus, and clarity, and minimizing distractions, Forbrain can calm the nervous system. Forbrain® works directly on your nervous system by focusing attention on your voice and reducing the sound and other sensory clutter in your brain. This settles the nervous system and improves confidence, motivating you to take action and succeed.
