Easier walking and using the computer«I notice a significant improvement, especially during walking and using the computer.
This difference is confirmed by the integrated statistics function in the program. I can see my progress every day and am encouraged to continue training and improve even further.
The exercises are fun and the individual settings are useful and intuitive.»
About the saccadic trainingThe saccadic training was developed to offer patients with hemianopsia (e. g. after a stroke, cerebral haemorrhage or craniocerebral trauma) a varied and everyday eye training. Since the healing of a visual field loss due to brain injury is usually no longer possible after a certain period of time, only compensation through eye movements is possible. The saccade training helps to reduce problems in everyday life, which often arise due to a visual field failure.
GURTNER IT SOLUTIONSThe Swiss startup GURTNER IT SOLUTIONS developed this compensatory visual training. Beat Gurtner (Computer scientist and occupational therapist) founded this company in 2016 and has since followed the philosophy of producing easy-to-use, modern and patient-oriented software. With the combined expertise in computer science and occupational therapy, a needs-oriented software for people with hemianopsia was developed. Through regular exchanges with doctors, therapists and patients, the saccadic training is constantly optimized and continuously developed.
The origin of the saccadic trainingIn 2013, Mr. Fasel suffered a stroke and has been struggling with a visual field loss ever since. The retired teacher was passionate about cycling and did banking on his computer (a little less passionate). In these and other activities, he was severely limited and insecure due to partial lateral blindness.
In occupational therapy, Mr. Fasel learned how to compensate his uncertainties and limitations in everyday life by means of targeted eye movements. In order to make the training even more efficient, the occupational therapist suggested additional exercises on the computer. Unfortunately, the existing programmes did not meet Mr Fasel's expectations:
- Varied exercises
- Detailed statistics for follow-up control
- Reasonable price
- One institution which uses the PRO version is the organization of the Eastern Swiss Association for the Blind (obvita). Have a look at the start page of their individual PRO version here: obvita visual training
