Super Brain Yoga Health Enhancement and Rejuvenating Oneself

Super Brain Yoga (SBY) or Ketuk Ketampi has been shown to improve short-term memory and human health condition.


This is based on the results of a study by two lecturers from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) Shah Alam, Selangor, Ts Dr Hjh Ros Shilawani Sheikh Abdul Kadir, Associate Prof Zunairah Haji Murat and a master's degree student , Faizul Hafizzi Ahmad.

Ros Shilawani, who is also the project leader, said this technique was the first to be introduced in Malaysia and was named as SBY HERO (Health Enhancement Rejuvenating Oneself). According to her, the assessment was conducted before and after performing SBY HERO to see changes in physical health and short-term memory level.

Electromagnetic radiation, also known as aura, is the electrical energy emitted from the human body or living things, can be used to measure changes in physical health. "Digit Span Test '(DST) is a test used to assess the improvement of short-term memory," she said.

Among other advantages of SBY HERO is to balance the left and right brain hemispheres to improve memory and health towards a happier lifestyle.

The target of this study is also to change the stigma of society that considers Ketuk Ketampi as a form of punishment to yoga techniques that benefit to improve health and elevate the status of Ketuk Ketampi in a more positive direction. The long-term planning is to propose to the Ministry of Education Malaysia to implement SBY HERO as a co-curricular activity in schools.

This project has won Gold Award in the virtual Innovation competition at faculty level and has been submitted to participate in IIDEX UiTM 2020 which will be held on 2 – 4 Nov 2020. The initial investigation of this research (concerning brainwaves and other exercise) had been published in the SCOPUS journal and already been presented in International Conference on Electronic Devices, Systems and Applications (ICEDSA 2020) last March (conference proceeding will be published at year end).
