REDUCE EXPOSURE TO INJURY

51% of high school emergency room visits stem from practice sessions (National High School Sports-Related Injury Surveillance Study, 2012-2017)

By taking virtual reps, athletes reduce exposure to injury from over training and over loading the body during practice time.

  • Remove the protective stickers from the lens before the first use.
  • For those with corrective vision, we recommend a viewer that has adjustable lens dials.
  • Calibrate your screen using the QR code on your VR Viewer.
  • Take breaks between VR sessions to improve cognitive retention.
