TENNIS VISION METHOD (off court)
We train your eyes and brain to make quicker and better decisions on the tennis court.
THE VISUAL SYSTEM
90% of the information that we take in when we play sports is visual. A problem on your visual system will affect your performance on the court, field, ring or rink. We can use the 360Eyewire as an example to explain how an inefficient visual system could diminish your performance in sports.
Interpretation of results:
When the subject looks at the first bead, he or she should see one bead with two short strings leading toward it and two longer strings leaving it. On the two strings which leave the bead, there will be two beads at the 5 foot distance and two more beads at the 9 foot distance.
If only one string is seen, the subject is suppressing one eye. Results: absence of depth perception, poor overall performance.
If the strings seem to cross in front of the beads, this is referred to as an "exo-posture" and they will tend to perceive things being closer than they really are. Results: a tennis player might "hit" the ball, swinging early because the ball appears closer than it really is.
if the strings seem to cross behind the beads, this is referred to as an "exo-posture" and they will tend to perceive objects being farther away than they really are. Results: a tennis player would consistently swing late at the ball.
TESTING AND ANALISIS
We asses 12 visual and sensorimotor skills using scientific methods with digital displays and input devices.
Our cloud-based analytics compares each assessment to a large database by sport, position, and competition level to reveal strengths and opportunities for improvement.
Each of the 12 assessments are plotted in a radar chart in percentile rank for the peer population. Greater the number and the size of the plot, the better the performance.
Based on our assessment and analysis, 360Athlete provides an improvement plan that may include a referral for an eye exam with an eye care professional.
