The Fifth Generation MotivAider is the latest version of the ingeniously simple device that for over three decades has been helping people of all ages worldwide stay focused and make desired changes in their own behaviour and habits.
Invented by a clinical psychologist, the MotivAider was designed from scratch to enable people to make desired changes in their own behaviour and habits. Implementing a proven no-nonsense method of facilitating behaviour change, the MotivAider uses an automatically-repeated private vibration signal to keep its user’s mind focused on doing what it takes to achieve a chosen behavioural objective or goal.
Everything about the MotivAider, including the special high-wobble vibration signal that users have described as “as private as a thought”, has been painstakingly designed — and continuously improved — to maximize the MotivAider’s effectiveness.
Like previous MotivAiders, the Gen5 MotivAider comes preset to operate in a simple manner that — right out of the box — will enable most users to achieve excellent results. But with advanced features and capabilities that go beyond those of the classic MotivAider, the instrument-quality Gen5 MotivAider is ready to meet the needs of a range of users including:
- Individuals who are eager to change their own behaviour and habits
- Professionals engaged in helping others make important behavioral changes
- Researchers and others who require a sophisticated and versatile tool that can reliably prompt monitoring and/or interventions
A Serious Behaviour Change Tool
The MotivAider is a friendly, easy-to-use tool that puts you in control of your own behaviour and habits. It allows you to stay focused so you can replace troublesome old behaviour and habits with new behaviour and habits that you intelligently choose. It makes certain that your attention will stay tuned to achieving goals that would otherwise get lost in the shuffle.
- You can use the MotivAider to make virtually any desired change in behaviour or habits.
- The MotivAider doesn’t rely on inspiration-based motivational strategies that inflate your hopes then leave you flat. It relies instead on a simple but proven behaviour change method. That means you don’t even have to believe in the MotivAider in order for it to work for you!
- Simply put, the MotivAider works with your mind to make your mind work better. It allows you to make use of knowledge, ability and motivation you normally waste.
Easy to Use
The MotivAider looks like a pager and weighs less than 85g. You simply clip it on your belt or waistband or carry it in a pocket. It works automatically, communicating with you in a way that’s as private as a thought. It uses an adjustable high-wobble vibration signal to capture your attention without disrupting your normal activities.
To use the MotivAider, here’s all you do:
- Choose a brief personal message — a word, phrase or image — that reminds and motivates you to change the behaviour you’ve decided to change.
- Connect your personal message to the MotivAider’s unique high-wobble vibration so that whenever you feel the vibration, you’ll automatically think your message.
- Set the MotivAider to send you private signals — and therefore your message — as often as necessary to keep you focused on the behaviour change you want to make so you’ll stay on track until you’ve achieved your goal.
Harness the Power of Prompting!
By automatically sending a steady stream of private reminders flowing through your mind, the MotivAider keeps your attention riveted on any chosen behaviour change goal. It guarantees that your mind will stay focused on changing your behaviour until the desired change becomes second nature.
Yes, the MotivAider is simple. But don’t let that fool you. it really works!
The MotivAider has helped tens of thousands of people around the world become more effective and successful. Used in industries that range from healthcare and education to business and sports, the MotivAider has a truly impressive track record. For over thirty years, it’s been helping people of all ages transform their good intentions into actual life-improving changes in behaviour and habits.
Features and Benefits of the Gen5 MotivAider
- The new larger display keeps you informed and makes it easy to view the Gen5 MotivAider’s features and to select and configure desired options.
- Enjoy even greater control over the quality of the ultra-quiet vibration signal. We’ve known for years that the quality of the private vibration signal is a critical factor in making prompting effective. With the instrument-quality Gen5 MotivAider, we’ve taken that knowledge to the next level by giving you even greater control over important properties of the vibration signal. Not only does the new MotivAider allow you to control the strength and the length of vibration signals, it gives you the option of dividing each vibration signal into distinct pulses. And, with just the press of a button, you’ll be able to immediately feel the effect of any changes you make in strength, length or pulse.
- Choose from 3 types of prompting intervals. Enjoy greater control over the frequency with which signals are sent. You can choose to have the MotivAider send vibration signals at Regular (fixed), Average or Random Intervals. And if you choose Random, you’ll also be able to specify both the shortest and longest amount of time that can pass between vibration signals.
- Use the new SESSION feature to have prompting stop on its own after a chosen period of time.
- Use the new USER PROFILES feature to move easily between different behaviour change projects, different prompting schedules for certain days of the week or certain situations, or even different users. This feature will allow you to save or load up to four complete profiles of MotivAider settings.
- Use the new PAUSE & RESUME feature to pause prompting in the middle of a countdown and resume it whenever you want — even hours or days later.
- Use the HIDE option to make things even more private by keeping the screen totally blank while the MotivAider is prompting. (As a bonus, using Hide will also extend battery life.)
- Use the new LOCK feature to discourage unintended or unwanted changes in settings. Teachers and other professionals who are engaged in helping others use the MotivAider will especially appreciate this new feature.
- The recessed press-and-hold Mode key, which replaces the mechanical SET/RUN switch on earlier models, improves durability and reliability while preventing accidental input.
- The improved removable belt clip is wider and sturdier and features two contact points for greater grip and security. And the clip is also designed and positioned to discourage curious children from accessing the battery.
- Powered by a single AA battery, the Gen5 MotivAider comes with a top-quality industrial alkaline battery. To extend battery life, the Gen5 is designed to automatically enter sleep mode when it’s not in use. For even longer battery life, we recommend replacing the included battery with a 1.5 volt AA lithium battery, such as the readily available Energizer® Ultimate Lithium battery.
