The training makes use of a well-established psychological paradigm called the Visual Search Task. During a training session, the patient is asked to search a computer screen and decide if a particular item is present amongst distractor items. The level of difficulty is systematically altered by changing the target positions, the number of distractors, and similarity between the search for the target and distractors. NeuroEyeCoach is self-adaptive and adjusts the task difficulty to the patient’s deficits while encouraging eye movement efficiency.
The program has 12 levels of difficulty that can be completed in a minimum of 36 sessions, each taking around 15-20 minutes. The pre- and post-therapy evaluation options within the program enable the clinicians and patients to quantify the effect of therapy.
The NeuroEyeCoach leads to meaningful improvement in visual search performance, resulting in improvements in navigation skills and object finding. Increases the efficiency of a patient’s eye movement and re-train the patients’ ability to make the most of their remaining vision. Performed in comfort at home on patient’s own computer; the program is intuitive and user-friendly. The program has been designed not to be overly demanding and is can be quickly completed in 2-4 weeks.
