There is more to athleticism
than power and speed
Sharper Senses
Before a single move is made, every sense is actively engaged.
Faster Perception
The brain receives a continuous flow of information and expertly processes at extreme speed.
Quicker Movement
The mind simultaneously prioritizes and discards information, while transmitting messages throughout the body.

ASSESS
The Senaptec Sensory Station assesses 10 visual and sensorimotor skills using scientific methods with digital displays and input devices.

ANALYZE
Our cloud-based analytics compares each assessment to a large database by sport, position, and competition level to reveal strengths and opportunities for improvement.

Sensory Performance Report

How do you compare to the competition?

Each of the 10 assessments are plotted in a radar chart in percentile rank for the peer population. Greater the number and the size of the plot, the better the performance.

Up to four strengths are identified as well as four areas of opportunity. Two evaluations can be overlapped to see areas of improvement between two points in time.

Based on our assessment and analysis, Senaptec provides an improvement plan that may include a referral for an eye exam with an eye care professional.

Training Tools

Training Tools
SENAPTEC STROBE
The Senaptec Strobe is designed to train the connections between an individual's eyes, brain, and body. The lenses flicker between clear and opaque, removing visual information and forcing the individual to process more efficiently. It can be incorporated into many sport drills and exercises.

Our Advisors

Graham Erickson, OD, FAAO, FCOVD
Graham Erickson, OD, FAAO, FCOVD Professor, Pacific University
Dr. Erickson is a professor at the College of Optometry at Pacific University where he teaches Pediatric Optometry, Vision Therapy and Sports Vision courses. He is a diplomate in the Binocular Vision and Perception Section of the American Academy of Optometry, and fellow of the College of Optometrists in Vision Development. He has authored the text Sports Vision: Vision Care for the Enhancement of Sports Performance, currently the only resource both for the student learning about the field, and the practitioner seeking a deeper understanding and application of Sports Vision. In addition, Dr. Erickson co-authored the text Optometric Management of Reading Dysfunction, and published chapters and articles in various optometric journals. He lectures nationally and internationally on the topics of Sports Vision, pediatrics, binocular vision, and dyslexia. Dr. Erickson has served as chair of the Binocular Vision, Perception and Pediatric Optometry section of the American Academy of Optometry, Chair of the American Optometric Association Sports Vision Section council, and is currently the Oregon director for the Special Olympics Lions Club International Opening Eyes vision health program. In his free time, Dr. Erickson lives in the Portland, Oregon area and enjoys spending time with his family, running, skiing, backpacking, playing music and traveling.
Dr. Mihalik is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Exercise and Sport Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He is also the Co-Director of the Matthew Gfeller Sport-Related Traumatic Brain Injury Research Center. He is a clinical neurotrauma researcher, with an emphasis on biomechanics related to military and sports head trauma. He is a social entrepreneur, having translated his research to co-author smartphone applications with the goal of preventing unnecessary secondary complications related to sports concussion, and has an interest in applying emerging technologies as a head injury prevention strategy. In his work, Dr. Mihalik is studying the efficacy of visual and sensory performance measures as a viable adjunct to concussion injury assessment and management and, more importantly, applying fundamental performance enhancement mechanisms to concussion rehabilitation. He explores this work in youth, high school, and collegiate athletes, as well as the US military’s elite warfighters. Dr. Mihalik has been awarded the Advancement of Science Award by the Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation Association, and has authored over 75 textbook chapters and peer-reviewed scientific publications, in addition to presenting or co-presenting close to 200 scientific presentations. Dr.Mihalik lives in Durham, North Carolina with his wife Johna and daughter.
Dr.Mitroff is an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology at The George Washington University in Washington D.C. He earned his B.A. in Cognitive Science from UC Berkeley and his Ph.D. in Cognitive Psychology from Harvard before spending 10 years as a faculty member at Duke. His Visual Cognition Lab explores a wide variety of issues related to attention, perception, and memory with an emphasis on understanding how visual and attentional skills differ across individuals and how performance can be enhanced. Stephen’s broad research objective is to advance academic theories while simultaneously informing applied topics with “real-world” implications. To do so, he has worked with a wide range of research groups, including airport security screeners, radiologists, orthodontists, stroke patients, and elite athletes. He also uses a range of research tools to understand the nature of vision and attention, including big data obtained from mobile technology and sports vision training eyewear. Stephen lives in Washington D.C. with his wife Pam and their three children.
