What Is the Training Procedure?
Typically, training takes place 3 times per week for 10-15 minutes per session.
How long does a session last?
A session can run for up to 20 minutes. Most athletes train for approximately 8 – 12 minutes.
What size monitor/screen is required?
Computers: Minimum screen size is 12 inches, up to a maximum of 27 inches (diagonal measure).
Mobile Devices: The smallest screen currently supported is an Apple iPad 1 which is 1024 x 768 px (or 768 x 1024 px if rotated).
What is the optimal viewing distance from the monitor/screen?
Approximately 18 to 24 inches is the best range.
Should I wear my glasses or contacts when I evaluate and train?
It is essential that the athlete wear proper vision correction and have their eyesight checked/corrected before using the product.
What if I've had laser eye surgery?
That’s ok! You can still train and perfect your visual skills with the Edge Trainer.
What if I use bifocals?
Use the portion of the bifocal that you would normally use to when viewing the computer screen, specialty glasses that have been prescribed for computer viewing distance will work as well
When can I expect to notice improvements in my athletic performance?
Typically, an athlete will notice an initial improvement in their ability to “see” the ball, puck, or field after 2 – 4 weeks of training.
What are the red and blue glasses for?
The glasses allow you to experience 3D perception. They are required for the Alignment, Depth Perception, Convergence and Divergence Exercises in both Evaluation and Training. They are not used for the Recognition or Tracking Exercises.
Can any red and blue 3D glasses be used?
Glasses from other manufacturers may not be color compatible with the Edge Trainer. Polarized glasses cannot be used.
Can I train during my season?
Yes. Our experiences with professional sports teams have shown that training is effective in and out of season.
Will this training affect my ability to read?
This type of training was originally developed for children with reading disorders. Since similar visual skills are used for both sports and reading, there is frequently a crossover benefit.
Will training reduce the need for the use of glasses or contact lenses?
This type of training will not improve your visual acuity or remove the need for contact lenses or glasses.
What is the ideal setting to do my evaluation and training?
Ideally, you would take the evaluation or training in a dimly lit room, minimizing glare on the screen.
