Title: INTERACTIVE COGNITIVE-MULTISENSORY INTERFACE APPARATUS AND METHODS FOR ASSESSING, PROFILING, TRAINING, AND/OR IMPROVING PERFORMANCE OF ATHLETES AND OTHER POPULATIONS
Abstract:
A cognitive/multisensory stimulation system simulates sports scenarios during real sports actions for assessing, profiling, training, or improving performance of athletes or other populations. Cognitive/multisensory training can be provided by: establishing with an athlete a sensory semantic language for relating a number of sensory signals to corresponding possible actions, the sensory semantic language being essentially new to the athlete; instructing the athlete to perform an athletic exercise involving skills and full body movement; providing during exercise sensory signals to the athlete to require rapid discernment by the athlete of the semantic meaning of the sensory signal to correctly chose one possible action; and determining whether the athlete correctly responds to the selected sensory signal during said exercise.
