The Sensory Station is an advanced platform which offers sensory evaluation and training that is utilized to measure and improve the visual and sensory skills of an athlete. The platform provides instant results, which can be compared to the data on the extensive databases worldwide by three different aspects: sport, competition level, and position. Through the analytics feature, athletes are able to identify strengths and areas for improvement. The Sensory Station is used to enhance all 10 visual skills mentioned here. 

Strobe Eyewear 

The Strobe is one of the most frequently used equipment at Sports Vision. Strobe goggles are designed to train and strengthen the connection between the eyes, brain and body.  The lenses in the goggles use liquid crystal technology, to flicker between clear and opaque, removing visual information and making it harder to see. This in turn forces the eyes, brain and body to process visual information more efficiently.

Having trained with the goggles on, individuals are able to process visual information faster in a game situation. The Strobe is essential to improving reaction time. It is also used to improve eye-hand coordination, increase visual memory, improve neuro stability and for concussion prevention.

The strobe technology can be implemented in two ways: at the Sports Vision Center to enhance the visual skills or during current drills to reach the next level of performance better and faster.
