MAKING THE BEST ATHLETES IN THE WORLD EVEN BETTER

Winning requires superior mental performance. Sports science shows that it’s cognitive abilities that give elite athletes a critical performance advantage. The ability to perform under pressure, remain aware, in control, and to rapidly process everything that’s going on around them, are the abilities needed for athletes to make better decisions, and consistently perform at their best. NeuroTracker has scientifically demonstrated advantages for professional athletes seeking to raise their level of situational awareness and decision-making abilities on the field.

What Others Are Saying About NeuroTracker


“Elite athletes leverage huge advantages from their mental prowess on the field, and so finding a way to condition performance cognitively has always been a major challenge for sports science. I think NeuroTracker is a genuine breakthrough here.”

Lenonard Zeichkowsky, Ph.D., Director of Sport Science (2010-2011) Vancouver Canucks

“NeuroTracker is a fundamental tool for harnessing and developing any athlete’s performance potential. That’s why I’ve run over 10,000 NeuroTracker sessions for Manchester United’s best, pro athletes, and world champions in multiple sports.”

Mick Clegg, Elite Lab, Strength and Conditioning Coach, Manchester United (2000-2011)

“Our elite athletes report better reading of game flow, heightened anticipation of collisions, faster decision making, and ultimately more confidence under high pressure play.”


Pierre Beauchamp, Phd, Founder & CEO of Peak Sport Performance Mindroom and Canadian Olympic Committee Advisor

The Benefits


Better Awareness and Control


NeuroTracker helps athletes get into the performance zone for any competitive sport where there is pressure to perform. When competitive play is fast and dynamic, mental processing resources become overwhelmed, and it is these brain functions that NeuroTracker increases – measurably speeding up brainwave activity for handling greater processing loads. With on-going NeuroTracker training, elite players in team sports such as ice hockey and soccer, report feeling the game slowing down in the heat of action.

What is NeuroTracker?

NeuroTracker uses 3D multiple object tracking at increasing difficulties to develop high-level brain functions critical to sports performance. Each session (6mins) delivers a series of mini-tests where the athlete needs to remember key targets, then track them moving among distractors for several seconds and then identify them. Simple to do, but always challenging, NeuroTracker adaptively optimizes difficulty to each athlete’s level, maximizing cognitive stimulation every step of the way.


Getting Started

Integrate NeuroTracker Into Your Training Program


Its short training sessions make NeuroTracker easily integratable into existing training programs and its unique technology is complementary to reactionary tools which emphasize instinct rather than decision making. Sport science specialists increasingly combine physical, visual and cognitive training – NeuroTracker is your cognitive tool.


Incorporate NeuroTracker into your training program

Train 1-3 times per week for 6 to 18 minutes

Measure performance and compare results

Get better at NeuroTracker, become a better athlete

Create a baseline to identify the best talent

What Kind of Hardware Do I Need?

To obtain the best results, a 3D environment is key. Athletes prefer to train on large screen active 3D TVs because it better trains peripheral vision and allows you to add skill exercises for an extra challenge (for example dribbling a ball while training on NeuroTracker). You will need a Windows computer and a 3D TV or 3D projector with 3D glasses. In addition, smaller screen devices in anaglyph 3D (red and blue glasses) may be added for basic training and to facilitate throughput.

Which NeuroTracker Version to Choose?

There are two NeuroTracker software versions. The NeuroTracker Pro is geared towards high performance athletes whereas the NeuroTracker Customize is customizable to very young and more senior athletes as well as the elite.
