Some of the unique features and benefits of the SVI are:
Saccadic Trainer Function - Useful in therapy for all patients to enhance eye-hand coordination, visual reaction time, central-peripheral integration.
Tactile Feedback- Uses the hand rather than a keyboard or laser pointer so the patient gets “real life” tactile and proprioceptive feedback
Hand Speed Function - Used in the Sports Vision Evaluation of Olympic athletes. Useful in therapy for Sports Vision both to measure and increase visual reaction time and hand speed
‘Visual Search” Saccadic Function - Unlike saccadic procedures like the Hart Chart, the SVI Saccade 2 Function simulates real life where the majority of saccades are not to an anticipated fixed point in space, but rather to “unexpected” events in the environment.
Metronome Function- Helps all patients to enhance rhythm and timing and visual-auditory integration
Tachistoscope Functions - Helps to increase speed of both visual and auditory information processing and memory.


Features
Significant Number of easily modifiable target and program variables:
• Number of targets- Increases/decreases the level of demand for young or brain injured patients up to high level athletes.
• Letter size - increases demand, especially useful in therapy for amblyopia.
• Tracer: Gives exact feedback on accuracy of eye-hand coordination.
• Central Fixation - Excellent for training central-peripheral awareness and integration.
• Combinations of Background and Target Color - Provides perfect cancellation for monitoring of suppression and monocular in a binocular field activities.
• Contrast Sensitivity Function- Increases demand, especially useful in therapy for TBI, Sports Vision and amblyopia.
• Speed Functions - increases demand, especially useful in therapy to train automaticity
• Letter, Number and Word Options- variable cognitive demand, especially useful in therapy for automaticity for math, and reading.
• Size of Visual Field: Can be adjusted to central, peripheral or full field. Useful for central-peripheral integration and for hand/arm limitatients in young children, ABI/TBI patients
• Visual Field Loading - Targets can be loaded into a filed or quadrans. Especially useful for athletes and ABI/TBI patients.
• Performance Assessment Features: Atomatically records, stores, and prints if desired, all settingsplus very wide range of performance responses: speed, accuracy, central peripheral relationships, etc.
