Improving “decision making skills” in game situations is a key feature of IntelliGym. The laptop-focused training brings the player through a variety of challenging exercises to maximize situations that along with repetitive learning, trains the athletes brain to be better prepared when they return to the ice. Scientifically verified software develops skills like game transitioning, focus, on-ice positioning, peripheral vision, movement anticipation, and ultimately, decision making under pressure.
“From the standpoint of the way it’s set up, it’s like he’s playing a video game. He’s not even thinking when he’s using Intelligym at all about how it transfers to him playing hockey. I think the way its training his brain to think and react and to act, its subconsciously helping him on the ice. It’s a matter of staying engaged with the program.”
Like in any game, users will start at the beginning level and work their way up. Each of the progressive steps along the way offers a different skill set on how it would transfer on the ice - teamwork, protecting the puck, etc. As players get better scores, the difficulty and challenges increase.
