Main product name/s: NovaVision VRT – for all ages.
Product description (in their own words, in their own website): “Nova Vision VRT is specifically developed for patients who suffer from a visual field deficit resulting from a neurological trauma caused by either stroke or traumatic brain injury (TBI). It is a home-based program performed in the comfort of your home on a computer device. During a 30-minute session, you will focus on a central point on the device screen and respond whenever you see a light stimulus appear. Any type of rehabilitation, after a stroke or brain injury, regular practice is important and with Vision Restoration Therapy a patient can actually enhance visual field loss if done persistently by an average of 5°. In a retrospective study, 88% of VRT patients have mentioned receiving at least one significant benefit as a result of performing VRT, such as improved reading, mobility, and social comfortability¹. VRT can help recover Hemianopia, Quadrantanopia and, Scotoma type of vision loss, which are common after a stroke or TBI.”
