  4. 4. BrainBaseline BrainBaseline’s Broad Objectives • Develop a global platform that integrates cognitive performance measures with lifestyle and biometric information to track brain health over time • Provide consumers, clinicians, pharmaceutical companies, and health care and wellness communities a better understanding of brain health and function across the lifespan. • Inform and educate consumers on evidence-based behavioral interventions to provide life-long cognitive health and wellness. • Accelerate discovery and reduce the cost of research, clinical trials, and clinical interventions. Copyright Digital Artefacts 2014
  5. 5. BrainBaseline BrainBaseline Platform BrainBaselineTM is designed as a modular platform that aggregates health and behavioral measures through embedded content and third party API integration. The cornerstone of the application is our suite of over 40 cognitive tasks, which allow us to determine the relationship between cognitive performance and other aspects of an individual’s behavior or physical health. We present this information to users in a way that is appealing and easy to understand; effectively, BrainBaseline is an education and research platform that provides users with an engaging means of understanding, testing, and improving their cognitive health. Copyright Digital Artefacts 2014
  6. 6. BrainBaseline BrainBaseline 2.0 Platform Overview Lifestyle Activity Brain Drive Biometrics What makes BrainBaselineTM 2.0 unique is the ability to combine these measures to provide holistic snapshots of an individual’s psychological, physical and cognitive health, providing this information to users in a way that allows them to better understand how their brain health is linked to their behavior. Copyright Digital Artefacts 2014
  7. 7. BrainBaseline Components of BrainBaseline 2.0 User Dashboard: The user dashboard acts as a hub that provides users with an overall snapshot of their current behavioral, cognitive, and lifestyle status in the form of summary scores and performance trend lines. The data are populated dynamically and can be adjusted instantly to provide social motivation, with users being allowed to see how their status in each domain compares to other anonymous users of the application in, e.g., their age group or location, as well as connecting with friends or family to compare scores against others in their social network.

  10. 10. BrainBaseline Components of BrainBaseline 2.0 User Information: (lifestyle, demographics) In the user information module, users answer a series of demographic questions, including, age, gender, income level, education, and geographic location, in addition to questions related to their preferred leisure activities, overall level of activity. Other specific questionnaires or self-report measures can be integrated on the basis of project-specific requirements. Copyright Digital Artefacts 2014
  11. 11. BrainBaseline Copyright Digital Artefacts 2014
  12. 12. BrainBaseline Components of BrainBaseline 2.0 Cognitive Testing: The cognitive testing module is the cornerstone of the BrainBaseline application. The tests are mapped to specific cognitive domains, are brief (individual tests take between 1 and 4 minutes), and are diverse in order to maximize both user engagement and data quality. Furthermore, the diversity and wide-ranging nature of BrainBaseline’s tests provide added sensitivity to cognitive change, allowing more accurate detection of decrements or improvements in cognition.

  18. 18. BrainBaseline Components of BrainBaseline 2.0 Activity: The activity module is a hub for users to monitor and aggregate information about their level of activity and sleep, and allows them to set activity and sleep goals that let them visualize and incentivize lifestyle changes that lead to optimal physical and cognitive health. Current functionality allows users to either self-report activity and sleep data, or integrate directly with their FitBit, Jawbone UP, and Body Media trackers for automated aggregation of these data.

  25. 25. BrainBaseline Components of BrainBaseline 2.0 Driving behavior tracking : A unique aspect of the BrainBaseline platform is the ability to obtain measures of complex driving behavior and use this information as an additional ‘real-world’ data point with which to assess a subject’s overall cognitive health. The behavioral tracking module integrates with BrainBaseline’s DriveMonitor mobile phone application, which uses GPS, accelerometer, and video data to measure basic drive information (e.g., overall time on road, miles/km driven) as well as detecting and marking unsafe driving behaviors such as sudden stops or drastic swerves. These data can be sent to the behavioral tracker, where subjects can monitor this information over time to observe relationships between specific cognitive behaviors and real world driving behaviors.

  28. 28. BrainBaseline BrainBaseline 2.0 Platform Overview BrainBaseline 2.0 is a scalable platform capable of integrating data from many varying systems, developed both internally and externally, into cognitive profiles for varying populations ranging from individual users up to groups based on activity, biometrics, demographics and other factors. The platform itself focuses on data security, reliability and extensibility. BrainBaseline integration with Apple HealthKit and Electronic Health Records Electronic Health Records Copyright Digital Artefacts 2014
  29. 29. In conjunction with UCSD department of psychiatry we have received NIH funding to develop an iPad-based screening measure for HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders. • Screening takes 10 minutes to complete • Self administered in clinic waiting room • Automated scoring and reporting • Aggregated data • HIPPA compliant infrastructure • Multiple language support, native iOS development • Global Research sties • US, Japan, South Africa BrainBaseline Clinical Screening Instruments Copyright Digital Artefacts 2014
  30. 30. BrainBaseline Why are we building the BrainBaselineTM platform “If you could give people information and tools that would delay the onset of cognitive impairment by a few years, you would be doing much to improve individuals’ quality of life as well as improving society.” Debra Cherry, PhD Alzheimer’s Association Copyright Digital Artefacts 2014

  32. 32. HeartMath: Creating a Fundamental Shift in Human Health and Well-Being Catherine Calarco SVP/CMO HeartMath Inc. ccalarco@heartmath.com www.heartmath.com
  33. 33. The Problem: Stress • One Third of Americans Extremely Stressed. APA Survey 10/07 • Workplace Stress is as bad for your heart as high cholesterol.JAMA 2007;298:1652-1660. • For 11,119 workers in 52 countries, heart disease was directly related to work stress. Rosengren A, Hawken S, Ounpuu S, et al. Lancet. 2004;364:953-962. • People with high stress have 46% higher health costs. JOEM, Vol. 40, Number 10, October 1998. Stress impacts all aspects of life, resulting in sleep disorders, obesity and pain – issues that are tied to chronic disease and morbidity. JOEM, Vol. 40, Number 10, October 1998
  34. 34. HeartMath Proven Solutions • HRV and Coherence Digital Health Technologies • Training programs for Health Professionals, Coaches/Mentors, Military and Organizations • Non-Profit Research Institute and Education Programs “HeartMath gave me a venue that allowed me to change my life.” – Vietnam veteran, Lt. Col. Harrison Jack “It is the most powerful tool I have found to reduce stress quickly in my life.” – Tammi Johansen Evans 11/6/2014 HeartMath Template 34
  35. 35. Our Solution: Using HRV Technology to Lower Stress • HRV is a measure of the naturally occurring beat-to-beat changes in the heart. • HeartMath IP measures HRV in real time to determine “coherence”, a very efficient physiological state where the heart, the brain and nervous system work are in synch • Greater coherence reduces stress and empowers sustained behavior change. Incoherence: Frustration, Anxiety, Worry, Irritation Impairs Performance and Wellness Coherence: Positive Emotions Appreciation, Love, Care Promotes Optimal Performance and Wellness ©2014 HeartMath Inc
  36. 36. A Brief History of HeartMath • Founded 1991, non-profit research center to study links between stress, brain/heart function, health and performance. • Published more than 80 studies on cardiovascular health, cognitive performance, health care utilization, staff retention, PTSD • Developers of award-winning mobile stress reduction technology solutions. • 20 years evidence of sustained reduction of stress and stress-related conditions • Over 360,000 Customers, in 85 Countries 36
  37. 37. HRV and Coherence: • HRV proven & used in medical practice for decades • Increase in recent research studies and publications • Palo Alto Longevity Prize selects HRV as a criteria for success • Increase demand for product and services • Kaiser, Sabre, Huffington Post, Samsung and others select HeartMath as leader in HRV and Coherence training • HeartMath was listed as one of the Top 10 Companies to Watch in 2013 in a new market trends report by SharpBrains. @2014 HeartMath Inc 37
  38. 38. Coherence Significantly Improves Brain Function • Increased ability to self-regulate (Bradley, 2010; Bedell 2010) • 40% improvement in long-term memory (Lloyd, 2010) • 24% improvement in short-term memory (Lloyd, 2010) • Increased ability to focus (Lloyd, 2010; Ginsberg, 2010) • Increased ability to process information (Ginsberg, 2010) • Faster reaction times (McCraty, 2010) • Higher test scores (Bradley, 2010) • Improved ability to learn (Bradley, 2010) ©2014 HeartMath Inc

  40. 40. Retail Pharmacy Chain: Reduction in Medical Errors N = 222 pharmacists Retail pharmacy chain knew stress was affecting medication errors “incident rate”. One day HeartMath workshop and emWave provided to all pharmacists, with 2-hour follow up. Results: Significant reductions: fatigue, anxiety, depression, anger, resentfulness, stress symptoms, morale issues, time pressure and stress. 40-71% reduction in medication errors. Exit survey reported 100% “extremely satisfied” with the program. Based on these results, won ISFP award for safe medication practice. ©2014 Institute of HeartMath
  41. 41. Heart Rate Variability Indicators • We have the most HRV when we are young and it steadily declines as we age. • Below-normal HRV for your age is a strong and independent predictor of future health problems, including all-cause mortality. • HRV is an important indicator of psychological resiliency and ability to handle stress. • Higher levels of HRV are associated with superior mental performance on tasks requiring executive functions.
  42. 42. The Heart-Brain Relationship • The heart has its own complex nervous system: the “heart brain.” • The heart sends far more information to the brain than the brain sends to the heart. • Heart signals especially affect the brain centers involved in strategic thinking, reaction times and self-regulation. ©2014 Institute of HeartMath
  43. 43. Heart Rate Variability: The Heart’s Rhythm and Measuring Coherence ©2014 Institute of HeartMath
  44. 44. Coherence Affects Physical and Mental Performance • Heart signals affect the brain centers involved in emotional perception, decision making, reaction times, social awareness and the ability to self-regulate.
