IRVINE, Calif., January 4, 2012 – EON Reality, the world’s leading interactive 3D software provider, has partnered up with CogniSens Athletics to form cognitive training solutions for sports. The solution, the NeuroTracker, improves athletic performance by increasing player situational awareness and improving action response time during gameplay. The training starts off with basic multiple object tracking and progresses to full game like simulations.
NeuroTracker is an innovative perceptual-cognitive training system developed by CogniSens Athletics and delivered through EON Reality’s platforms. The technologies are supported by Dr. Jocelyn Faubert, a world leading neurophysicist. NeuroTracker training improves an athlete’s perceptual-cognitive ability, allowing them to spread attention, deal with rapid optic flow, and process biological motion – all skills required of an elite athlete.
Current users of the NeuroTracker are New England Patriots, Oregon Football, Vancouver Canucks, and Manchester United among others.
“At the elite levels, athletes are on the same playing field with respect to their physical abilities. What separates the average athlete from the good athlete, and the good athlete from the great athlete, is the mental game- both in preparation and reaction. Cognitive training helps the athlete recognize what the opponent is doing, and to be one step ahead. Simulation allows the athlete to not only prepare better, but accelerate experience. These technologies will change how teams develop their athletes and how athletes prepare for competition. ” said Brendan Reilly, Director of EON Sports.
Training the brain, adding motor skills, and graduating to a fully-immersive virtual environment is quickly becoming the future of high-level sport science.
