SENAPTEC SENSORY STATION
Breadth matters! Your senses are a compilation of a multitude of fundamental skills. Measuring just one skill misses the complete picture. The Senaptec Sensory Station provides the world’s most complete automated solution for the sensory skills that matter most in life. The system can currently assess 10 sensory parameters and provide training on all these skills. This is your complete sensory performance solution!
The Sensory Station is a state-of-art sensory evaluation & training station which assesses 10 visual and sensorimotor skills. In less than 25 minutes, you can determine an individual’s strengths and opportunities to improve sensory performance.
The Sensory Station is a digital convergence of many analog tools that took up much floor space in a facility. The automated data collection, analysis, and immediate reporting saves you time so that you can get to training right away.
The best assessment is done in a consistent and controlled setting. The adjustable height of the Sensory Station allows you to adjust the assessment to the eye level of your athlete, whether it's a youth athlete or the tallest NBA center.
The Sensory Station comes with a remote control that allows you to make the adjustment from anywhere in your room.
Much of sport happens at a distance, whether it be catching a fly ball, throwing a sideline pass, or aiming at a target. In order to measure the visual skill involved in these activities, these skills must be measured at distance. Many of the assessments on the Sensory Station is conducted at 10 feet to mimic reflect distance.
The Senaptec Sensory Station includes a mobile device that comes with a custom app to enter user input. The user simply makes swiping gestures to indicate their responses to the assessments.
The Senaptec Sensory Station utilizes cloud technology to help you manage your athlete data and to provide immediate comparative results. The athlete's profile, evaluation data, and improvement plan are stored locally and on the cloud to keep your data secure.
Senaptec’s data analytics include comparative databases from youth to professional sports in a wide range of sports and positions. Custom comparisons can be easily made with the Sensory Station.
There is no need to start your own database from scratch. Take advantage data collected over many years and across the globe. If there is a new sport or position to the database, algorithms will combine other like sports and positions to provide the analysis.
The Sensory Performance Report is presented in a radar chart format to provide a single glance look at your overall performance. The larger and wider the plot, the better you are doing.
The chart provides a percentile ranking, where you can see your strengths and areas of opportunity to improve.This report also provides the improvement plan to get you training right away.This report in a PDF format can be immediiately emailed to the athlete and/or the organization.
While the Sensory Performance Report presents the data in percentile ranking, you can export your raw data from the Sensory Station software. This .csv file formatted data contains over 200 columns of data. You have the option to export it by emailing the file or saving it to a memory card.
The evaluation on the Sensory Station is founded on scientific principles and established units of measurements. A major benefit of the Sensory Station is that wherever it is being used, a standard method of evaluation is being conducted. This allows for comparisons to be made across the world and across sports disciplines
The Sensory Station also provides training tools that train various visual skills and promotes healthy competition by tracking high scores. Those with competitive spirits will aim to be the best.
The software foundation of the Sensory Station allows for easy expansion of tools with continued development. Tools are built in modules so that with software updates, new and improved tools will be deployed to all customers.
We are working with development partners in sport, military, and the medical fields to bring more focused, contextual training tools that are grounded in the expertise of those industries.
Senaptec provides training tools for all assessed skills. The tools on the Sensory Station training platform are built as games that are designed to help people improve their sensory performance.
PREDICTING ICE HOCKEY PERFORMANCE
Abstract In the growing field of sports vision little is still known about unique attributes of visual processing in ice hockey and what role visual processing plays in the overall athlete’s performance. In the present study we evaluated whether visual, perceptual and cognitive/motor variables collected using the Nike SPARQ Sensory Training Station have significant relevance to the real game statistics of 38 Division I collegiate male and female hockey players.

SENSORY PERFORMANCE AND HEAD IMPACT BIOMECHANICS
The development of prevention strategies is critical to address the rising prevalence of sport-related concussions. Visual and sensory performance may influence an individual’s ability to interpret environmental cues, anticipate opponents’ actions, and create appropriate motor responses limiting the severity of an impending head impact. The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between traditional and visual sensory reaction time measures, (more…)Learn More
SENSORY STATION RELIABILITY
Athletes have demonstrated better visual abilities than nonathletes. A vision assessment for an athlete should include methods to evaluate the quality of visual performance skills in the most appropriate, accurate, and repeatable manner. This study determines the reliability of the visual performance measures assessed with a computer-based system, known as the Nike Sensory Station. (more…)Learn More
MAPPING THE STRUCTURE OF PERCEPTUAL AND VISUAL-MOTOR ABILITIES
The ability to quickly detect and respond to visual stimuli in the environment is critical to many human activities. While such perceptual and visual–motor skills are important in a myriad of contexts, considerable variability exists between individuals in these abilities. To better understand the sources of this variability, we assessed perceptual and visual–motor skills in a large sample of 230 healthy individuals (more…)Learn More
