Using a 50″ HD TV and interactive touch screen, The Sanet Vision Integrator (SVI) is a multi-sensory system incorporating eye-hand coordination with cognitive processing and balance to help improve these abilities for a wide range of visually related learning problems. The key features that make this “all in one” instrument so useful are the variety of programs and many ways that visual abilities can be enhanced. The programmable instrument incorporates features of a saccadic trainer, virtual rotator, tachistoscope and programmable metronome. The SVI instrument actually “speaks”, instructing the patient to respond to verbal commands, improving auditory-visual integration and memory. SVI can be used to enhance the following visual abilities: Pursuits, Saccades, Fixation Stability, Eye-hand coordination, Visual reaction time, Speed and span of recognition, Automaticity, and Contrast sensitivity, plus Visual and Auditory Sequencing and Memory.
NOTE: SANET VISION INTEGRATOR DOES NOT TREAT OR DIAGNOSE ANY SPECIFIC MEDICAL CONDITION OR DISEASE
Some of the unique features and benefits of the SVI are:
Saccadic Function – Useful to help enhance eye-hand coordination, visual reaction time, central-peripheral integration.
Tactile Feedback – Uses the hand rather than a keyboard or laser pointer to provide “real life” tactile and proprioceptive feedback.
Hand Speed Function – Useful for Sports Vision both to measure and help 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 – Useful to help enhance rhythm and timing, and visual-auditory integration.
Tachistoscope Functions – Useful to help increase speed of both visual and auditory information processing and memory.
Significant Number of easily modifiable targets and program variables:
• Number of targets – Increases/decreases the level of demand.
• Letter size – increases demand as the letter sizes decrease.
• Tracer: Gives exact feedback on accuracy of eye-hand coordination.
• Central Fixation – Excellent for 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.
• Adjustable Contrast Sensitivity Function- Increases demand.
• Speed Functions – Increases demand, and helps build automaticity.
• Letter, Number and Word Options- variable cognitive demand, especially useful for building 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 limitations in younger individuals.
• Visual Field Loading – Targets can be loaded into a filed or quadrans.
• Performance Assessment Features: Automatically records, stores, and prints if desired, all settings plus very wide range of performance responses: speed, accuracy, central peripheral relationships, etc.
