Light tracking enables the user to create a strong connection between the body and the mind. The predefined or customized measurable routines train the brain and the body to react together when in a certain situation. The fight or flight response of the body is improved with the use of this type of system and reaction times can improve over successive sessions of training giving you better reflexes.
Why would you do this test? Cognitive responsive reaction can mirror the real game reaction conditions and encourages the athletes to strengthen their abilities and react correctly. By testing the reaction times using controlled lights we are able to gain insight into their brains processing power and how that information is tied together with the bodies neurological system.
Who is this test recommended for? Cognitive responsive reaction testing is recommended for every athlete regardless of their age or the sport they play.
How often should you repeat this test? Cognitive responsive reaction testing is recommended every 4-6 months, while cognitive responsive reaction training is recommended weekly.
Which body parts are or can be tested? Cognitive responsive reaction testing targets the brains processing power and how that is tied together with the athletes neurological connections.
What are the results of this test? The test will provide each athlete with a baseline cognitive reaction reflex time for them to build off of through cognitive responsive reaction training.
What does this help to improve? Cognitive response reflex testing is highly beneficial for athletes recovering from injury. It can also be used for conducting complex diagnoses that cannot be done through the conventional equipment. Athletes can be tested for the range of motion, coordination, strength and the extent of injury. We can set the test at the desired level of difficulty and set the number of reps as well. Cognitive response reflex testing provides reliable data which gives the user a clear view of where the athlete stands in the recovery process.
