Hemianopsia: The story of the saccadic training
Hemianopsia is a hemifacial loss of the visual field that is often the result of a stroke. This reduces or diminishes the field of vision of the person affected, which can lead to considerable restrictions in everyday life.
Hemianopsia: Training options after a stroke
What is hemianopsia? Hemianopsia or hemianopia is a vision impairment that can occur, for example, after a stroke, brain haemorrhage, brain surgery or tumour disease.
Driving after hemianopsia
Approximately 200,000 people in Germany suffer a stroke every year, and most of them continue to struggle with the consequences for a long time afterwards. About 10% of these people suffer from visual field defects (e.g. hemianopsia or visual neglect),which lead to reduced vision.
New innovative function: eye tracking with the webcam
The new function means a great improvement for training and is almost a small sensation because it works without additional hardware. All it takes is a webcam set up in most devices, as well as the saccade training, which contains a variety of exercises.
