CAP Brain Gain 4 Corporate Wellness Program

A revolutionary program that offers an entirely new and innovative approach to corporate wellness. Like training an elite athlete for peak performance, we enable employees to achieve their peak performance through enhanced brain communication and health that offer unimaginable gains in wellness, happiness, and corporate productivity.The CAP approach identifies opportunities for behavioural change in each employee to develop sought after attributes such as:

  • processing abstract ideas
  • applying proper thinking dynamics
  • connecting the dots
  • thinking outside the box
  • creativity and motivation to name a few.

We unlock your organizations full potential by assessing and improving neurocognitive abilities in each employee.

To optimize each employee’s neurocognitive health and brain function, we identify the key neurological metrics that are limiting factors using the Brain Gauge sensorimotor technology and a Brain Gain Self-Rating Scale. These assessments are correlated to the overall organizational metric providing a snapshot of the “Corporate Brainbeat”. Individual and corporate reports identify opportunities and recommendations designed to achieve optimal levels of performance.

All cognitive metrics measured in the brain directly relate to physical and mental attributes.

For example, high levels of focus and low levels of fatigue directly relate to happiness and satisfaction. Some of the key neurotransmitters that are responsible for the interpretation of “satisfaction” are acetylcholine and dopamine.

Acetylcholine is an “on switch” in the brain that is responsible for the brains ability to quickly understand relationships between things of seemingly unrelated context.

Dopamine is another “on switch” that is critical to happiness and a sense of satisfaction. Top executives and elite athletes often have high levels of dopamine. It is integral in activating the chase and reward systems which are highly correlated to motivation and drive.

Cognitive Metrics Tested and How They Relate to Neurocognitive Ability

White Matter Integrity

Employees that have optimal speed metrics are quick thinkers, effective at spotting trends and organizing information from related fields. A Football quarterback can see the entire field, evaluate options and execute a pass quickly.

Common traits include:

  • High degree of creativity
  • Conceptualize new ideas
  • Organize and process complex information
  • Overall time from assessment, decision, execution and problem solving increases quickly.

Hypo/Hyper Brain Activity

Employees that have optimal accuracy metrics consistently deliver high-quality work. A pro golfer’s consistency is highly correlated to the postural endurance in the address set-up. Postural fatigue will alter the biomechanics of the swing affecting consistency; akin to hypo or hyper stimulation of the brain affecting consistency in work related tasks.

Common traits include:

  • Consistency in all motor/perceptual functions
  • Attention to detail-oriented tasks
  • Emotional control – ability to apply proper thinking dynamics

Maintaining On Switches

Employees that have optimal focus produce a higher quality of work, are more efficient and are better at multitasking. Like a soccer player that is aware of all players on the field but can zero in on a single play.

Common traits include:

  • Easily juggle and shift between tasks
  • Ability to eliminate distractions and stay on task
  • Can apply all other metrics over longer periods of time

Cognitive Recall And Memory Order

Employees that have optimal TOJ have excellent strategy and organizational skills; desirable traits for management. The term “game smart” applies here. Wayne Gretzky had an amazing talent for seeing where the play was heading and taking the puck.

Common traits include:

  • Ability to prioritize multiple, complex tasks to meet deadlines
  • Strong organizational skills
  • Ability to manage teams and use time and resources effectively
  • Recognize patterns and trends

Cerebellum Function

Employees that have optimal timing perception are well suited for time sensitive, project work that has multiple variables and is abstract in nature. A show jumper times each jump in communicating with their horse so they can finish the course in as little time as possible.

Common traits include:

  • Ability to process abstract ideas and apply them to related tasks
  • The coordination and processing of information to a higher degree of understanding resulting in improved performance output

ATP Production

Employees that have high levels of fatigue will not have the ability to perform optimally. Even though they may have the aptitude, fatigue will mask their full potential. Elite athletes ensure they follow optimal recovery strategies to avoid fatigue. Diet, hydration, quality sleep, high quality supplements, regular Chiropractic care and other modalities are all integral to maintain peak performance.

Common traits include:

  • Inability to maximize all cognitive attributes
  • Directly related to depression, mood, and low morale
  • Inability to produce consistent, efficient, and a high quality of work

Brain Repair Capacity

Employees that have optimal plasticity are excellent at multitasking and can wear many hats while maintaining a high level of performance. Bo Jackson is an excellent example of an athlete that excelled at pro baseball and football, retired and completed his Bachelor of Science degree.

Common traits include:

  • Malleability and adaptability to all stimulus
  • Ability to retain new skills
  • Ability to learn new skills

NEXT: CAP Brain Gain and Wellness 4 Workers

A revolutionary program that offers an entirely new and innovative approach to occupational health and safety to reduce incidents and improve productivity, happiness, and wellness in the workplace and, in life.

Like training an elite athlete for peak performance, we enable workers to optimize cognitive and psychological attributes through enhanced brain communication and health. To enhance each workers’ neurocognitive health and brain function, we identify the key neurological metrics that are limiting factors using a sensorimotor testing technology, the Brain Gauge.

An individual worker report is generated that identifies strategies to optimize neurocognitive abilities and, an organizational Safety Risk and Wellness Report, empowering your organization with strategies to reduce safety risks and achieve optimal levels of performance.

Examples of Neurotransmitters and Their Function

Acetylcholine is an on switch in the brain that is critical for making sense of your environment quickly. It is responsible for the brains ability to understand relationships between things of seemingly unrelated context.

ACETYLCHOLINE – QUICK THINKING – HUMOUR – MEMORY

GABA is the brains off switch. Depletions of Gaba can result in restlessness, anxiety, and depression.

GABA – FOCUS – CALM

Cognitive Metrics and How They Relate to Neurocognitive Ability

White Matter Integrity

The white matter is the electrical relay center for communication between all brain regions. Dysfunctional white matter directly impairs the presentation of all other metrics.

Amplitude Discrimination

The parietal lobes’ ability to detect changes in vibratory stimulus relates to machine operation risk. Dysfunctional amplitude discrimination impairs motor/perceptual functions and attention to detail-oriented jobs.

Attention

The inability to stay focused for at least twenty minutes increases the risk of incidents by three times according to research.

Sequencing

The inability to put things in order, anticipate, and comprehend leads to poor hazard assessment skills and increases the risk of accidents.

Organization

Dysfunctional cortical signalling in the cerebellum impairs balance, timing, and spatial awareness which will increase the risk for slips and falls.

Fatigue

Fatigue compromises attention and exacerbates all neurocognitive ability increasing the risk of injury and incidents.

Systemic Adaptability

The inability to adapt to new environments and difficulty learning new skills increase risk of incidents.

Combining regular Chiropractic Care with our CAP programming allows your employees to function at their very best. Imagine your employees:

working smarter, not harder.

Being more efficient in less time.

Enhancing creativity and problem solving to a much greater degree, freeing your higher level managers to innovate as THEY need to!

All of this, and much more, is possible when the nerve system functions at a higher level. This ultimately saves you time, money and lost opportunities due to poor performance, sick days and rising healthcare/insurance costs
