Vision training in elite sports -- add Dallas Cowboys

Post by coach13 » Fri Oct 15, 2010 7:37 pm

Dallas Cowboys players and training staff will have announced that they will incorporate Nike's patented Sensory Sport Training Lab into the team's training routine.

The SST Lab offers a niche area of training that helps elite athletes improve their visual and cognitive skills, including eye-hand coordination, peripheral vision, focus and concentration, and reaction speed.

Are there any studies that have shown this to be effective? There was a summary of a decade of research that came up negative [1], but that's two years old, and I've been hearing a lot of hype about vision training the past couple of years.
