Cognitive & Physical Stimulation

The BRiTE Wellness Program provides a novel, integrated, multi-modal program to promote brain health among individuals with known or suspected brain injury, by engaging them in physical, cognitive, and artistic activities to promote healthy brain structure and function, and to stimulate compensatory strategies.

Programs We Offer

Aerobic Activity: group activities designed to increase heart rate and respiration.

Cognitive Stimulation: individual computer-based activities in a group setting to help stimulate cognitive function.

Balance Training:  use of individual balance activities to help with gait and station.

Cognitive Strategy:  group activity to help simulate the development of specific strategies

Strength Training: weight lighting, stretching, yoga.

About Us

The BRiTE Wellness Program was developed by a team of like-minded scientists at the University of Pittsburgh with expertise in cognition and behavior.  The goal was to create a setting that would help individuals with mild impairments in cognition to work to stimulate their brain with a goal of improving overall health and wellness.

BRiTE was created through a series of generous contributions from donors who wanted to help provide these services to the people of Pittsburgh

Activities are scheduled at hourly intervals, with changing sequences from day-to-day.  BRiTE members can attend as many or as few as they like.  The activities are scheduled on a rotating basis, and the schedule is available on-line and at the program center.
