As a integrated system the Flow Trainer has multiple applications related to the fields of education, training, pain management, and the treatment of posttraumatic stress disorder. The systems unique integration of neural narrative scripting visual simulation, enhanced audio interface, and transcranial magnetic stimulation allows for extreme flexibility when applied to various training disciplines and the treatment of chronic psychological disorders
The principle drivers of this system are related to the efficient psychological preconditioning of individual trainees. The secondary drivers are related to the narrativization of the training material.
Narrative optimization of training materials is essential to the Flow Trainer system and allows for deeper subconscious comprehension and data retention. The theory of narrative identity postulates that individuals form an identity by integrating their life experiences into an internalized evolving story of the self which provides an individual with a sense of unity and purpose in life. The Flow Trainer system exploits this understanding by systematically integrating training narratives into this internalized self-narrative. The application of virtual displays, enhanced audio, transcranial magnetic devices and haptic interfaces insures a full immersion experience.
