Your Brain Needs Exercise, Too

Take advantage of your member discount for BrainHQ™, the brain-training program

The brain is every person’s most important asset. It’s the center of everything you think, feel, and do. And right now, at a time when millions of Americans are staying home, taking care of our brain health is more important than ever. Just as the body needs physical activity to thrive, the brain needs cognitive stimulation and new learning to stay sharp. And just as you may be developing a physical exercise plan, it’s time to develop a cognitive exercise plan.

That’s why Tufts Health Plan is offering you a 17% discount off the subscription price of BrainHQ.1 It’s the only brain training program found to be effective in multiple gold-standard clinical trials, according to leading brain research institutes. BrainHQ embodies 30 years of research in neurological science and related medicine.

What Is BrainHQ?

BrainHQ is a set of online brain exercises that can be used on a computer or with the BrainHQ app on your preferred device. The app can be downloaded from the App Store from Apple or from the Google Play store. Studies show BrainHQ improves cognitive function, and that these improvements result in real benefits in people’s lives. BrainHQ has 29 online exercises that work out attention, brain speed, memory, people skills, navigation, and intelligence.

BrainHQ suggests exactly which exercises to do, and in which order. BrainHQ’s personalized trainer feature, designed by scientists, continuously measures performance and serves up the best exercises for you at the right time. Or, if you prefer, you can design your own program, choosing exercises and workouts that meet your personal interests, mood, and schedule.

Even people with busy schedules can use BrainHQ successfully. It takes less than five minutes to do each BrainHQ level, so you can use it in tiny bites or long blocks, whichever is right for you.

What’s more, BrainHQ supports you every step of the way, with great free features such as:

  • Weekly challenges to help you set and reach your goals
  • Progress features to help you keep track of how you're doing
  • Online and phone support to help you succeed
  • A monthly newsletter and other resources with brain health news, tips, and more.
