Developed by Nike’s former Global Director of Vision Science and his team of human performance experts, the REVs are an integrated strobe training system founded on science.
Stroboscopic training is a style of training that can help enhance sensory skills.
The VIMA REVs incorporate stroboscopic lenses to improve sensory and sensory-motor skills. It does this by taking away varying amounts of visual information, forcing an athlete to be more efficient with the limited, decision-making information that he or she is provided. This powerful tool forces an athlete to, “keep their eyes on the ball” and ultimately, “slows the game down.”
Vision is the guiding sense for most human performance. Vision has most often been taken for granted by athletes, parents, coaches and trainers. But awareness of vision as a key component to performance is growing. Research has shown that regular strobe training can improve sensory skills like reaction time, depth perception, and focus.
