The Neural Engine.

Soma Analytics is the neural engine that links to Soma NPT and enables you to send customised cognitive training plans with a high degree of flexibility directly to an athlete's Soma ID.

The Soma Analytics neural engine provides 14 detailed cognitive and physiological measures as well as Minute on Minute (MoM) data breakdowns that enable you to monitor an athlete's cognitive and physiological breaking points. With Soma's detailed insights, you can optimize individual and team training plans to ensure the cognitive load is optimal for your athletes.

Soma Analytics allows you to customise an athlete's cognitive training plan by adapting,

Training Placement

Easily integrate cognitive training into your atheltes current training regime.

Task Duration

Alter the overall cognitive load on the athlete's brain.

Task Intensity

Increase the number of cognitive reps an athlete must perform over the duration of the cognitive task.

Apply Specialized Training Modes

Adapt cognitive tasks in a variety of ways,

  • Maintain heart rate in a particular heart rate zone during the task.
  • Have the task adapt based on performance.
  • Have the task adapt based on heart rate variability (HRV).
  • Extend the task duration based on errors.
  • Have the athlete respond to a secondary task stimulus.
  • Apply time pressure.

Training Placement

In order to keep athletes engaged with a cognitive training plan, they need to be able to easily integrate cognitive training into their current training regime and to be able to adapt the physical-mental integration depending on their current season and training schedule.

Training placement can happen in 3 ways:

  • Pre Physical Training
  • Combined with Physical Training
  • Post Physical Training

Task Duration

Changing the duration of a cognitive task will alter the overall cognitive load on the athlete's brain. By extending the task duration even by a few minutes, the entire load of the session increases and the extra minutes add up over the course of the cognitive training plan. A few minutes more may not seem like very much, but when you add up what is happening over those minutes you will understand why increasing task duration can be so effective. The same works in reverse, taking a few minutes off each session is an effective deloading strategy, as a handful of minutes off each session will substantially reduce the total reps and overall load on the athlete.

Task Intensity

We want to be able to make adjustments to the cognitive training plan along the way. We also need to be able to progress any plan, to continue to push the athlete and get results. Changing the intensity of a cognitive task is going to alter the overall cognitive load on the athlete's brain. Increasing the intensity of a cognitive task causes the task to become more demanding (and so consume more of their limited cognitive resources). It can also increase the number of cognitive reps an athlete must perform over the duration of the cognitive task. This is a straightforward way to manipulate the amount of load on an athlete's brain.

Training Modes

Soma Analytics gives coaches the ability to make even an easy task much more difficult with specialized training modes. This means you can select a very basic cognitive task with a minimal cognitive load and apply a specialized training mode to adapt the task in a variety of ways, including the following:

  • Maintain heart rate in a particular heart rate zone during the task.
  • Have the task adapt based on performance.
  • Have the task adapt based on heart rate variability (HRV).
  • Extend the task duration based on errors.
  • Have the athlete respond to a secondary task stimulus.
  • Apply time pressure.

Specialized Training Modes allow you to take any cognitive task and manipulate the cognitive load, this engages the athlete and pushes their cognitive limits. By making the task more and more complex, you are able to more closely approximate the multiple demands that your athletes face during sporting competition.
