- The following factors are taken into account: Reaction time, error rate and number of practice rounds.
- Once all values are within the range of the comparison group,
it is recommended to go one level further.
- If you are slower or make many mistakes compared to the peer group,
we recommend that you choose an easier level.
- The comparison group consists of many users of this software.
- You can choose any level at any time; we only make a recommendation.

Approximately 200,000 people in Germany suffer a stroke every year, and most of them continue to struggle with the consequences for a long time afterwards. About 10% of these people suffer from visual field defects (e.g. hemianopsia or visual neglect),which lead to reduced vision.

Certified medical product
The saccadic training has been a medical product since July 2020. Unfortunately only six of the original 15 exercises could be certified. If you want to use all 15 exercises, you can use the new app Oculy:
What does that mean?
- This product is approved as a certified medical device according to current legislation.
- The software is used for the therapy of impairments affecting the visual field. The loss of the visual field is to be compensated for by the increased use of saccades.
- The product was developed based on interviews with patients and health professionals (doctors, neuropsychologists, orthoptists and occupational therapists).
- Based on these interviews, it was precisely defined what requirements the product must fulfil.
- Then the product was developed according to a predefined software development plan.
- In addition, the software has been tested for various risks: Every person can use the software without hesitation as long as they do not have an acute eye disease (e.g. inflammation) or suffer from photosensitive evoked epilepsy.
- Risks and the entire product are regularly checked for errors according to a predefined test scenario.
- The product was clinically evaluated: It was found that it is a comparable product in the field of compensatory eye training and that it is not necessary to investigate the product with a separate study, as it is based on a well-studied principle.
