Brain Health

The Senaptec Sensory Station shows how the brain relates to the function of the whole body. The visual system is the most complex and pervasive sensory processing system, dominating brain activity. The eyes are truly the window to the brain. We rely on the vision system as a key player in a holistic approach to understanding and healing the body.  

THE SENSORY STATION EVALUATION measures visual, cognitive, and visuomotor skills that are impacted by many brain health conditions. Brain diseases may present differently in every person. Senaptec’s assessments establish a broad and comprehensive overview of the brain’s ability to receive, interpret, and respond to the world around them. The ability to baseline visual skills before therapy begins can provide clinicians with a critical benchmark to which brain healing over time can be compared. The sensory exercise modules on the Sensory Station address functions such as visual neglect, visual motor integration, visual field skills, oculomotor control, and the coordination of peripheral / central vision.    

THE  SENAPTEC  STROBE  EYEWEAR  has preset modes that can be customized with a smartphone app. This gives practitioners the freedom to create customized stimuli to meet your clients’ specific needs and/or address any barriers to healing. Using THE QUADRANT STROBE EYEWEAR, you can isolate the visual field areas receiving the stroboscopic stimulus. Our customers have used this technology to address partial visual loss conditions such as hemianopsia.  

THE SENAPTEC APP allows you to leverage self-care home rehabilitation and expanding telehealth opportunities by putting the power of our innovative technologies in your patients’ homes. The customized sensory exercise plan allows your patient to get real-time performance feedback on specific rehabilitation areas you assign. Via a proctor portal, the app utilizes our secure cloud technology to manage the data and allows you to check on your patients’ activity and modify their training plans as their ability improves.

TBI & Concussion

The majority of brain function is dedicated to visual processing and those suffering from a concussion will overwhelmingly experience ocular, visual, balance and/or cognitive problems. These difficulties may delay recovery if not adequately addressed. Common concussion symptoms affect eye focusing, eye movements, blurred or double vision, light sensitivity, concentration, and balance.  

For many who suffer a traumatic brain injury across its spectrum, there is a functional miscommunication between the peripheral and central processing systems. These are two different processing centers in the brain. If there is misalignment, a host of problems can result, such as nausea, lack of coordination, poor spatial awareness, etc. Creating a re-alignment of the peripheral and central systems is important for many concussion/TBI patients.  

THE SENSORY STATION provides several therapy modules that are designed to exercise the central / peripheral vision systems. These include Eye-Hand Coordination, Go/No-Go, Perception Span, Dynamic Vision, Split Attention, and Multiple Object Tracking.  

THE QUADRANT STROBE EYEWEAR can be used to address central / peripheral misalignment by adjusting the ratio of information allowed through the peripheral versus central regions of the vision. To start, the eyewear can be used with full bi-nasal occlusion. This approach can help the individual regain capability in the peripheral vision, which research shows is a foundational step in the healing process.

Stroke

Approximately 2/3 of stroke survivors experience vision impairment. These vision impairments are often a lasting degraded condition with functional consequences.
Stroke is a leading cause of disability in the United States. Approximately 2/3 of stroke survivors experience vision impairment. These vision impairments are often a lasting degraded condition with functional consequences. Stroke survivors also experience impaired peripheral proprioception, which can lead to over-dependence on visual information. These losses can result in postural instability and balance loss that adversely affects stroke survivor independence and health outcomes.  

THE SENSORY STATION EVALUATION can measure visual, cognitive, and visuomotor skills that are impacted by a stroke. The sensory exercise modules on the Sensory Station address functions such as visual neglect, visual motor integration, visual field skills, oculomotor control, and the coordination of peripheral / central vision.    

THE QUADRANT STROBE EYEWEAR has the lenses segmented into quadrants, with the center intersection aligned with the pupil at primary gaze. Each quadrant’s opacity and clear state can be independently customized to the occluding spatial and temporal patterns desired. By customizing this pattern, a practitioner selects which visual pathway(s) to the brain information is allowed to travel, thereby activating certain parts of the visual cortex and not others. For example, a patient with hemianopsia could utilize the Quadrant Strobe with lateral or medial sides occluded. The Senaptec Quadrant Strobe Eyewear can also induce sensory re-weighting by limiting your complete vision - both central and peripheral vision. Limiting peripheral vision limits spatial reference to the visual world, which causes the wearer to be more dependent on somatosensory information to maintain postural control.

Joint Injury Rehabilitation

A joint injury is not just a musculoskeletal injury, it's also a neuromuscular injury, interrupting the eye-brain-body connections for movement.  Reestablishing those pathways for a full recovery requires more than just restoring strength and range of motion.
When a person suffers a musculoskeletal injury such as an ACL rupture, it is also a neuromuscular injury. The injury causes a change in how the brain generates motion around that joint, and the information it relies on to prevent subsequent injury. The patient becomes more dependent on vision and less on other important proprioceptive stimuli. The recurrence rate of musculoskeletal injuries is high because while muscle strength and range of motion may have been restored, the interrupted neuromuscular pathway has not. It is not uncommon in some pathologies (e.g., chronic ankle instability) for practitioners to address sensory reweighting issues in their patients.  

THE SENSORY STATION can show the visual and sensory abilities of an injured person compared to normative data for person’s specific population. Senaptec’s database of athletes across sport, position, and competition level shows the relative status of the injured athlete. The exercise modules on the Senaptec Sensory Station provides the injured athlete with sensory integration training.

THE STROBE EYEWEAR is an ideal tool for restoring neuromuscular pathways. By limiting visual information while performing an activity that requires balance control, the brain is forced to reweight sensory strategies by focusing more on proprioception for balance and position. Instead of assigning just eyes-open or eyes-closed tasks, the Senaptec Strobe eyewear provides an adjustable spectrum between sight and no sight which also allows the clinician to add a secondary task.

Autism

Teaching a person on the autistic spectrum to handle the sensory input is fundamental for all other learning and growth. When someone on the autistic spectrum is calm in their sensory environment, they can better interact and learn.
Sensory overload is a common problem experienced by those on the autistic spectrum. Their brains get overloaded by sensory input and can respond in a variety of ways, such as isolating themselves from the environment or erratic motion or even violence. Teaching a person on the autistic spectrum to handle the sensory input is fundamental for all other learning and growth. When someone on the autistic spectrum is calm in their sensory environment, they can better interact and learn.

THE SENSORY STATION - Those on the autistic spectrum often rely too much on their peripheral vision to the neglect of their central vision. Several modules on the Sensory Station can be customized to redirect and help rebalance attention to central vision by providing fun, interactive activities. Additionally, the sensory station can help with sound/vision sensory input, handling multiple simultaneous visual inputs, and coordinating muscle movement with visual input.

THE QUAD STROBE EYEWEAR
can help with the peripheral / central reweighting by adjusting what areas of the visual pathway get information. The Quad Strobe Eyewear can also create a much more stimulating environment for those who need this type of therapy.

Parkinson's Disease

Recognizing visual disorders and implementing tailored interventions is essential to enhancing visual function, balance and preventing falls in Parkinson’s disease patients.
Visual impairment is common in Parkinson’s disease and deficits impact mobility, balance and ultimately increases falls risk. Visual deficits range from decline in basic visual function and oculomotor control, to more complex visual issues. All deficits limit independence and reduce quality of life. Recognizing visual disorders and implementing tailored interventions is essential to enhancing visual function, balance and preventing falls in Parkinson’s disease patients.

THE SENSORY STATION
provides a way to efficiently measure visual and visuomotor skills that could be impacted by Parkinson’s disease. The sensory exercise modules are designed to engage visual memory, oculomotor control, eye hand coordination, and other neuromotor pathways affected by the disease.

Sports Vision

Vision accounts for approximately 80% of all sensory information received and processed by the brain and is the primary source of information captured in the sensory organization of the body’s balance and sensorimotor systems.
Before you make a single move in competition or in daily function, every sense is actively engaged and preparing the mind and body for action. Vision accounts for approximately 80% of all sensory information received and processed by the brain and is the primary source of information captured in the sensory organization of the body’s balance and sensorimotor systems.  The information then goes through perceptual, decision, and response organization processes before movement even occurs.  Eye doctors know this mechanism well and are in the discipline to provide functional and applicable tools and protocols to help the youth athlete to the professional athlete in reaching their potential.  

Eye doctors were the pioneers of providing performance vision care services for athletes, and they have an inventive history from using homemade tools made out of slide projectors to adapting therapy tools for sports performance. With this solid foundation, Senaptec is bringing innovative tools based on large-scale data analytics to sports vision experts.  

THE SENSORY STATION is a science based, standardized evaluation system with secure cloud-based analytics and user-friendly interface that provides you with an evaluation of the athlete’ sensory performance and analysis in under 30 minutes. After evaluation, you can create a customized Sensory Station training program that will help your athlete client to improve 14 fundamental sensory skills for human performance.    

THE CLASSIC STROBE EYEWEAR turns any physical training drill into a sensory training drill. The Strobe Eyewear allows training the visual aspect of sport in what the athlete is already doing. From dribbling a basketball, hitting or kicking a ball, the athlete can now, with your direction, integrate sensory training without adding practice time to their daily regimen.  

THE SENAPTEC APP extends your reach by providing additional remote access. This allows the athlete to continue their Sensory Station training at home or on the road. The customized training plan allows the athlete to work on the visual skills that are the most important to his or her sport, or the specific areas that the Sensory Station evaluation showed to be the opportunities for improvement. Via proctor portal, the app utilizes our secure cloud technology to manage data and to provide immediate comparative results, allowing you to fully manage your patients’ program and progress.
