BackgroundThis exercise offers a very realistic simulation of a car ride for people who, for example, can no longer drive a car. You can train your reaction and your eyes thanks to various real-life videos from road traffic. On the left and right side of the screen you will see a traffic light with three different options: Green, orange and red. Your task is to press the space bar on your keyboard as soon as you see a red signal. It does not matter whether the red signal appears on the left or right. Because you don't know where the signal appears, you have to look constantly from one side to the other with your eyes and the settings can also adjust the exact traffic light position to suit the user. If someone has more problems in the upper right corner, the signal can be moved to this corner. Furthermore, an additional distraction can be activated with the radio function if desired. Current radio stations from all over the world are played via the Internet.
- Sit in a distance of 30cm (12 inches) centered in front of the screen.
- Enlarge your browser window if necessary, so that it fills the whole screen.
- Fix your head (e.g. with one hand),so it will not move.
- Press the spacebar as soon as you see the red traffic light on the left or right side
- Search the screen with your eyes only, your head does not move.
- Work out 2 times a day, each 30 minutes, 5 days a week.
