Ophthalmologist Develops Internet-based Visual Training for Athletes


Product: Vizual Edge
Top Line: The Vizual Edge Performance Trainer (VEPT) is an economical, non-medical, Internet-based program designed to evaluate and train an athlete’s visual skills. Launching on January 1, an upgraded version of the VEPT program will allow usage on iPads and Android tablets.
Close Up: Visual training is a small, but critical component contributing to success in sports, academics and rehabilitation of concussions. The program allows for consistency, reproducibility and accessibility. It is available anywhere worldwide where there is Internet access. Since it creates metrics, the VEPT program can be used to reliably measure the most important visual skills and create a database of user scores.
"The program offers valuable information and insight to athletes, students, coaches, OTs and researchers,” said Barry Seiller, MD, an ophthalmologist who developed the program. “Our third-party research substantiates on-field transference as well as improving academic skills. As an example, ten MLB teams now use the program for scouting of draft choices and player development.”
Vital Stats: Eye doctors may consider adding this technology performance training as a non-insurance covered service profit center.
