The Science and Our Approach

There are two elements to balance, cognitive and physical –While both are important, Nymbl’s technology focuses on the cognitive element of balance

The cognitive element of balance allows older adults to recognize they are falling and through practice, formulate a “plan” on how to catch themselves in an instant – known as their balance reflex

As people age, their balance reflex starts to decline, meaning their balance is now an executive function, they have to actively think about it

Nymbl retrains a person’s reflexive balance, combining cognitive challenges with simple functional movements together – An older adult’s brain is focused on the cognitive challenge which means their reflex has to control their body and balance
