Senaptec For Physical Therapy

Many Physical Therapists have discovered Senaptec Strobes as an ideal tool for several rehabilitation scenarios. For example, by limiting visual information while performing an activity that requires balance control, the brain can be forced to re-weight sensory strategies and focus more on proprioceptive stimuli. Watch this video to see a testimonial on how a PT is using strobe eyewear to manage post-injury movement dysfunction and decrease injury risk when returning to activity.

Level 1-5 for dynamic movement. 
Level 3-8 for balance and proprioceptive.

4 Strobe Patterns 

Mode A

Both lenses strobing. This is great for all around training and therapy.

Mode B

Left lens strobing – right lens opaque. For training your non-dominant right eye or peripheral awareness.

Mode C

Right lens strobing – left lens opaque. For training your non-dominant left eye or peripheral awareness.

Mode D

Lenses alternating clear and opaque between left and right eye. This takes away your binocular vision for exercises to help your eyes to work together.

SENAPTEC STROBE APP

All settings can be controlled and customized remotely with smartphone via Bluetooth pairing, compatible with Android and iOS. This includes opening and closing the lens(es) on command.

LIQUID CRYSTAL LENS TECHNOLOGY 

Quadrant Strobe Capability

8 Strobe Rates

Level 1-5 for dynamic movement.
Level 3-8 for balance and proprioceptive.

11 Strobe Patterns 

Mode A

Both lenses strobing. This is great for all around training and therapy.

Mode B

Blocks the central vision, focusing your brain on peripheral vision.

Mode C

Lenses alternating clear and opaque between left and right eye. This takes away your binocular vision for exercises to help your eyes to work together.

Mode D & E

Blocks left or right vision, for training one side of your visual field, non-dominant eye or peripheral awareness. Also, can be applied to people who have hemianopsia.

Mode F & G

Blocks lower or upper vision. Blocking upper is good for those who need to work on getting their head up for posture and balance control and therapy on different portions of the visual field.

Mode H, I, J & K

Each mode block one quadrant, which allows focusing the training and therapy on that portion of the visual field.

Custom Modes

Additional pattern settings can be created using the Senaptec Strobe App.

How To Use Strobe Eyewear For Physical therapy

Research has shown that joint injuries not only effect mechanical abilities but can also interrupt neuromuscular communication. Several recent studies have found that stroboscopic eyewear can be effective in the re- weighting of sensory processing when performing movements that require stabilization and control. By incorporating Senaptec Strobes into the rehabilitation process you can limit the amount of visual information available, requiring your patient to upregulate the use of other remaining proprioceptive inputs. This enables them to properly re-weight sensory processing and decrease the risk of re-injury.

Watch this video to see how Dr. Weissbach PT, DPT at Evolve Physical Therapy, Oregon used Senaptec Strobe in his practice for re-weighting and to improve dynamic joint stability.

Recent study conducted by Ohio Musculoskeletal & Neurological Institute; Ohio University looked at visual perturbation to enhance return to sport rehabilitation after ACL injury. 


“Stroboscopic glasses provide a novel approach to train visuomotor function by perturbating and reducing visual feedback.”

Stimulate visuomotor demands

“Stroboscopic glasses simulate the dynamic visuomotor and cognitive/attentional demands of athletic activity while remaining in a controlled clinical environment.”

Facilitate proprioceptive integration

“As patients with ACL injuries exhibit degraded motor control during drop-jump landing, cutting, and postural control under impaired visual conditions relative to normal vision, stroboscopic glasses may facilitate increased proprioceptive integration in response to perturbed visuospatial information.”

Alter sensory weighting

“ACL rehabilitation efforts that incorporate stroboscopic glasses may be able to alter sensory weighting by decreasing the amount of visual information available to the athlete, thereby requiring the athlete to upregulate their use of remaining proprioceptive or vestibular inputs to guide movement.”

Enhance visuomotor processing

“Utilizing stroboscopic glasses in ACL rehabilitation may also enhance visuomotor processing efficiency in a compensatory manner to handle the increased reliance on vision to maintain low injury-risk biomechanics.”
