FitLight Trainer

The fitLight Trainer™ is a flexible wireless training system that can be adapted and configured for any sport and many healthcare applications, with the goal of improving hand/eye co-ordination, agility, strength and conditioning, and controlled rehabilitation from injuries. The system involves a series of lights that flash on and then are deactivated by either touching or covering them. The amount of time it takes to deactivate them is measured and calculated as a reaction time. Myriad combinations of light patterns and spatial orientations can be used to test and train reaction times and hand-eye coordination. Results can be quantified and subsequently analyzed. This type of training is frequently used with pro athletes and is used extensively at Speedlab National Center, the professional athletics subsidiary of the Delray Center. This is one example of “trickle down” technology that originated in professional sports and was later found to have applications in depression treatment and enhancing brain performance. Fitlight training can improve fine motor control  & coordination, increase movement & mobility, monitor movement capabilities, and establish baseline norms to track progression of performance and motivate further improvement.
