Vizual Edge, a leading research and development company focusing on visual performance training for athletes, has announced a strategic partnership with the Oregon School Activities Association (OSAA), the governing body for high school sports in the state of Oregon, to become the official vision training tool of the OSAA. With a joint commitment to positively impact the lives of student-athletes, Vizual Edge and the OSAA will offer all student-athletes the opportunity to improve their visual processing skills.
“We welcome Vizual Edge to the OSAA family and appreciate Vizual Edge’s commitment to positively impacting our student-athletes. Their leading-edge training tools will instantly aid the performance of kids across our state,” stated Ian Frost, General Manager of OSAA Sports Properties.
Utilizing technology previously reserved for professional athletes, Vizual Edge created the Edge Trainer. The computer-based training module combines 3D technology with decades of advanced clinical research in sports vision to sharpen neural pathways between the eyes and brain. Delivering a series of training sessions designed to improve the speed, coordination, and efficiency of an individual’s eye movements, users of the Edge Trainer enjoy improved timing, balance, hand-eye coordination, reaction time, and decision making.
“Partnering with the OSAA gives us an incredible opportunity to work with athletes who are proactive in taking their performance to the next level,” said Ryan Warkins, CEO of Vizual Edge. “With 80% of sensory information coming from the visual system, vision training is crucial for success across all athletics. We’re excited to partner with the OSAA and provide student-athletes with a tool that could really boost their performance in the classroom and on the athletic fields.”
