What Is the Vima® Rev Sport?
The Vima Rev Sport is a piece of wearable technology that allows athletes to train their vision more effectively. Coaches can use the Vima Rev Sport to enhance vision and response through strobe training. The eyewear’s lenses work like strobe lights. They alternate between clear and obstructed fields of vision to improve a person’s ability to target an oncoming object. The Vima Rev Sport comes with a library of training drills and how-to’s to assist athletes and coaches in getting the most out of their vision training.
