We’re on a mission to uplift a million minds globally.​

Every Mind Uplift contributes to the World Uplift Map, showing the collective impact of movement on minds across the world. We know the pandemic has had a huge impact on the nation’s mental well-being. The ASICS State of Mind Index visualizes this impact, and you can see why an uplift is needed.

How does the Mind Uplifter™ tool work?

The Mind Uplifter™ tool uses a combination of facial scanning technology and self-report data collection to capture the impact of sport across 10 emotional and cognitive metrics – including confidence, positivity, calm and focus – to show how different sports impact how you think and feel.

What do the scores mean?

By taking a reading of your emotions and brain function PRE and POST exercise, the different scores show how sport has uplifted your mind across the 10 emotional and cognitive metrics and shows it as a percentage.

How accurate is the Mind Uplifter™ tool?

The Mind Uplifter™ tool is the result of in-depth preliminary scientific research by ASICS alongside Dr Brendon Stubbs to explore the impact of sport on the mind among a select group of athletes using EEG readings and self-report data. The findings of this preliminary study have been applied in a robust and scientifically rigorous manner to enable the rollout of the study on a global scale.

Who created it?

The Mind Uplifter™ tool has been created by ASICS, in collaboration with Dr Stubbs and creative technology studio SolarFlare.

What is the World Uplift Map?

Individual Mind Uplifts from around the world will be visually transformed into a dynamic and interactive World Uplift Map. The map will quantify the positive impact that sport is having on the collective mood of cities, nations and the world as a whole. This will be live from 1st July onwards.

Does it store my data?

The Mind Uplifter™ tool does not store personal data. Results are submitted anonymously. From the 1st July, everyday athletes can choose to sign up to store results over multiple uses in a gallery. For this we will require a username, password and email address. This can be deleted at any time by request.
