IM® technology is designed to help athletes achieve peak performance through improved millisecond timing and synchronization of critical neural networks for integrated cognitive and motor function. IM® improves the resolution and efficiency of the athlete’s internal mental clock and ability to process temporal information in order to facilitate faster cognitive processing and reaction time, on-demand and sustained attentional control, and execution of more effortless, streamlined, and less variable motor sequences.
