We have recently got our hands on a set of ROXPro - a set of tactile pods that use innovative technology for training and rehabilitation. We are really excited to try them out. Read on to find out what is ROXPro and what we've been doing with them!
What is ROXPro?
ROXPro is a device that uses light, sound, vibration and motion sensor technology to provide multi-sensory feedback to enhance performance and training. Through the interactive sport-science-backed scenarios, it helps develop the sensory-motor and cognitive-motor skills in a fun and diverse way for all ages and fitness levels.
We have all heard the phrase “practice makes perfect” and there is a term that describes that in the context of the brain - ”neuroplasticity". Neuroplasticity is the brain’s ability to form pathways and neural networks. With each repetition, it reinforces a neural pathway. With enough repetitions, it leads the brain to change and adapt.
Imagine, the first time you used a spoon or fork to eat, no doubt it would have been weird, difficult, and perhaps even missed your mouth a few times. However over the years as we continue to practice we become more proficient and it becomes second nature to use a spoon when eating. The brain, through practice, has formed neural pathways to enable you to use a spoon to eat.
ROXPro's multi-sensory stimulation (touch, sound, and light) improves the neuroplasticity during activity and thus creating enhanced learning. With the cognitive-motor skills training and multi-sensory stimulation, ROXPro can lead to more efficient muscle activation for better results at the gym and in sports.
How we have been using ROXPro
The ROXPro App has pre-loaded activities and training drills. We are able to record our clients' data for long-term analysis as well. Here are some of the ways we have used ROXPro in the clinic.
