The Focus System is the core product for improving brain function through the implementation of the iLs method: brain and body integration through multisensory input. The Focus System is a clinical-level intervention designed for home use. Focus System programs consist of therapeutically-treated music combined with fun movement activities, and, when ready, cognitive challenges to further activate brain networks. The flexibility of 60-minute or 30-minute versions of the programs, which target specific goals, make implementation easy in clinics, schools and home.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Focus System programs provide simultaneous multisensory input to help develop new and reinforce existing pathways governing organization of the body and brain function. Therapeutic music is delivered via iLs’ air and bone conduction headphones, providing auditory input to the brain and sensory input to the body. Movement activities, customizable for all levels, provide additional sensory and motor input for body organization. Finally, cognitive activities, added later, challenge the brain to process multiple pieces of simultaneous information, which is reflective of demands required of the brain in our day-to-day world.
Especially in younger people and those recovering from injury, this staged approach develops a foundation that may never have been fully developed or was interrupted due to an event. With appropriate stimulation, the brain’s ability to successfully process and retain information leads to better academic outcomes. In addition, there is an increased ability to control impulses, self-regulate behavior and engage appropriately with others.
Teens and adults also see improvement in these areas, as well as improvement in reading comprehension, concentration, memory and performance at work. Most report less stress and anxiety and a happier disposition.
With a suggested frequency of three – five times per week, home-based programs often supplement once-a-week clinic visits.
