Bertec continues to innovate in the field of vestibular testing technology with its revolutionary Bertec Vision Trainer (BVT). Made for testing and training visual-motor coordination and balance skills, the system leverages an impact-resistant touchscreen to offer game-like training that helps improve performance and sensory function. Additionally, balance can be trained and enhanced alongside traditional visual-motor training with Bertec’s medical grade force plate.
What Are the Advantages of BVT?
Having the ability to combine balance and visual-motor training and testing brings many advantages for practitioners and patients. BVT provides the ability to customize backgrounds specifically for the user. For example, someone who gets dizzy in busy environments (such as the grocery store) can train as if they are pushing a grocery cart through the store. Training like this has been proven to produce better outcomes.
Here are some major benefits of BVT:
- Improve visual-motor performance
- Achieve peak performance in fast-paced, competitive environment
- Provide a unique modality for training during injury recovery
- Increase user motivation and participation
- Customizable backgrounds to provide users with familiar experiences
How Does it Work?
Taking a "crawl, walk, run" approach to therapy, BVT can be tailored to the specific needs of the patient and a strong framework to progress them based on performance. For example, the software allows for a patient who may have suffered a stroke to perform similar activities of a high-performance athlete by adjusting the number, the speed, the size, and the area of targets. The duration of the training and visual backgrounds can also be customized to the patient's level of performance.
BVT trains the brain to process visual information faster and more efficiently than other vision trainers on the market. Flash, Sequence, and Multi training modes stimulate cognition, enhance spatial awareness, and improve visual memory brain processes. Custom vision training is simple with rich selection of features to tune the training to the individual. Cognitive-based training modes are designed to train pattern recognition, spatial awareness, and working memory skills.
What Comes with BVT?
The standard BVT package comes with the software, a large touchscreen monitor (55”), a dedicated integrated computer, height-adjustable ergotron cart, a power supply, HDMI cables, and a power strip. There is an option to add a balance plate if desired.
