Integrating Strobe Glasses into Recovery for ACL Injury
The specialists at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center have integrated neurocognitive and visual-motor approaches with traditional neuromuscular interventions in treating injuries.

The integration of strobe glasses into the injury rehabilitation process is very interesting (and somewhat unexpected). The specialists at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center have simultaneously utilized neurocognitive and visual-motor approaches with traditional neuromuscular interventions in treating injuries. Specifically, the team used the strobe glasses to “rewire” the mind to establish normal movement patterns.

The authors of the original study concluded: “Physical therapists, athletic trainers, strength coaches, and other health care and performance professionals can capitalize on this integration of sciences to utilize visual-training technologies and techniques to improve on already-established neuromuscular training methods.”
