Rajasthan Royals (RR), an Indian Premier League foundational cricket team, has adopted RightEye’s Dynamic Vision testing technology and Dynamic Vision Trainer to improve its players’ sports vision and gain a competitive edge that will differentiate the team from the rest of the pack.
“With RightEye’s innovative technology we can go even further to gain a competitive edge and offer our players a unique opportunity to strengthen their on-field performance,” said Royals COO Jake Lush McCrum
As the Royals prepare for the upcoming IPL season in Dubai, most players on the team have already been tested. “The fast-paced sport of cricket demands that our players have outstanding dynamic vision,” said Royals COO Jake Lush McCrum.
“Plus, we play under floodlights, which introduces another element requiring the athletes to react and adjust accordingly. With RightEye’s innovative technology we can go even further to gain a competitive edge and offer our players a unique opportunity to strengthen their on-field performance. These are vision skills that every cricketer should be measuring regardless of skill level, which we will be implementing with our first XI as well as our junior teams.”
The FDA-approved RightEye Vision System tracks the amplitude and velocity of rapid, involuntary, and oscillatory ocular movements, measuring changes with eye movement. The system records, analyses, and reports eye movements in real time – without goggles, headgear or other invasive wearables. The revolutionary solution will let the Royals design a customized program to ensure improved dynamic vision translates to on-field wins. The RightEye system is portable, and the tests can be administered in 5 minutes or less.
“By implementing RightEye’s Sports Vision EyeQ, our trainers can identify opportunities to strengthen each athlete’s performance,” noted John Gloster, Royals physiotherapist. “The non-invasive, objective test quickly and easily analyses eye movement, brain processing, and reaction time so we can develop a cricket-specific training plan with the Sports Vision Trainer to enhance players’ reaction time.”
In sports, 20/20 vision is not the whole story. RightEye technology objectively identifies areas of players’ dynamic vision for improvement. The Royals are confident that this competitive edge will ensure their athletes’ peak performance.
