In collaboration with Dr. Vanbellingen and J. van Beek, from the Lucerne Kontonsspital, a scientific study was done on the effectiveness of „Finger Circus“. Links to the studies:
Goal orientated: A movement shouldn't be aimless, instead, it should have a goal or a purpose, because every movement that is stored in our brain, is linked with different brain areas.
Direct feedback: When the object moves or there is a sound the brain registers: the movement was successful.
Repetition: The more often a movement is repeated, the stronger it is anchored in the brain.
Fun: It is a proven fact that we learn more effectively when we're having fun.
Upper performance limit: To ensure constant improvement, the speed and difficulty of the movement should always be at the upper performance limit.
