Thief River Falls, MN (PressExposure) April 14, 2009 -- Behavioral Dynamics, Inc. has released its latest version of the MotivAider, an ingeniously simple electronic device that was designed to enable people of all ages to change their habits and improve their behavior quickly, easily, and privately.
The MotivAider may look like a pager, but it was created from scratch to provide people with a simple, effective and affordable way to transform their good intentions into life-improving action. The device is the brainchild of clinical psychologist, Dr. Steve Levinson, who admits to being surprised by the extraordinarily wide variety of behavior changes that people have used the device to make.
"People use the MotivAider to eliminate all kinds of unwanted habits like nail-biting and teeth-grinding. Both children and adults use it to improve attention. Many people use it to reduce stress, stick to a diet, increase personal or work effectiveness, achieve spiritual goals, or even to play better golf or tennis," Levinson said.
Although the MotivAider has never been aggressively marketed, it's actually been around for more than twenty years and is used in 35 countries in industries that range from healthcare and education to business and sports.
The MotivAider works by keeping its user's attention focused on making virtually any desired change in behavior. It does its job by automatically exposing users to a continuous stream of silent personal reminders. Each reminder is conveyed privately by a pulsing vibration signal capable of capturing the user's attention without interfering with normal activities.
To use the MotivAider, users first select a word, phrase or image that will remind and motivate them to make the desired change.
"By capitalizing on the mind's ability to associate meaning with a neutral stimulus, they transform the MotivAider's vibration signal into their own highly personal message," says Levinson. "The result is that whenever they feel the MotivAider's pulsing vibration, users automatically think their own personal message. The MotivAider automatically sends signals as often as it takes to keep the user focused and on track until repetition causes the desired change in behavior to become a habit," explains Levinson, "The concept is extremely simple, but it works like a charm!"
The MotivAider emphasizes ease of use while allowing for extensive customization. Users can choose how often to receive signals - from as often as once every few seconds to as seldom as once a day. They can also choose whether to receive signals at regular or variable intervals. Both the strength and the duration of the vibration signals are electronically adjustable.
Behavioral Dynamics, Inc., the small Minnesota company that developed the MotivAider, is hoping its latest version of the MotivAider will make the product's benefits available to a broader base of consumers. The new model features a rich satin stainless look and feel and the ability to send private signals at truly random intervals. It retails for $59.50 and comes with a three year warranty and lifetime telephone support. The MotivAider is available directly from Behavioral Dynamics, Inc. and from resellers in North America, Europe and Australia.
