Play Attention is the number one educational system to improve attention, behavior and cognitive functions of patients (adults and children) of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Although there are other mental games and cognitive exercises, but they have the following flaws compared to the Play Attention system:
Assume there is a child with ADHD playing mental games on a PC, how much attention would he be paying? The answer is undoubtedly not much. This means that regardless of the time a child spends playing a game, he/she will not benefit much. The general rule is that more attention means more learning.
Play Attention, however, contains a signal that measures the brain activity, which measures alertness. A player can only activate the game if he/she is fully focused and alert. Using the same technology, the player can move the game characters using his/her mind (or alertness). If the player loses attention, the game stops until he concentrates again.
