Frequently Asked Questions

Vector® Ball is the most dynamic and versatile Cognitive Vision Training (CVT) device available. It can be thrown, caught, bounced, etc. to support a full spectrum of live action CVT drills. Vector® Ball’s patented technology provides unpredictable visual information (random changes in color) to facilitate CVT drills that improve the Speed of Reaction of all athletes, youth to professional.

Yes.

Cognitive Vision Training (CVT), sometimes referred to as Neuro-Visual Training, are drills that develop information processing ability (Speed of Reaction). CVT exercises the eyes and brain, improving an athlete’s ability to rapidly transfer visual information into deliberate athletic action. Regular athletic training is predetermined, conducted in accordance with specific instructions, e.g. the athlete knows exactly what is required before the drill begins. CVT is when the athlete does not know what is required when the drill begins, and must accurately process information during the drill to be successful. This is done by introducing unpredictable visual information during the drill that provides instruction on what is required to complete the drill. For example, if the athlete sees “A” during the drill then they must do “X”, if the athlete sees “B” then they must do “Y”, etc.

It has a hard center core about the size of a golf ball that protects the electronics.  The core is surrounded by a clear thermoplastic (rubber like) shell that absorbs extreme shock and gives the ball its shape and look.

Vector® Ball is approximately 9 inches in circumference and 5 1/4 ounces (similar to a baseball or cricket ball).

Vector® Ball emits a short burst of light, randomly changing the color of the ball (Red, Green, or Blue) each time it is struck, bounced, caught, etc. This provides athletes with unpredictable information that enables, live action, Cognitive Vision Training (CVT) drills. For example: if the athlete sees the Vector® Ball turn Red, then they must catch it with their Right hand (execute a specific action associated with the observed color). The result is an improved ability to rapidly transfer visual information into deliberate athletic action (Speed of Reaction).

Vector® Ball is very firm but not hard like a baseball. It is firmer than a tennis ball but can be compressed with a strong squeeze.

Yes, Vector® Ball is very durable. It can be thrown, bounced, and caught repeatedly, against practically any surface (concrete, brick, wood, tile, etc.) at game speed, without damaging the Ball. It is the most versatile and dynamic Cognitive Vision Training (CVT) device available.

Yes, Vector® Ball randomly and instantly changes color (Red, Green, or Blue) with each impact.

Yes, Vector® Ball is resistant to weather and can be submerged in water without damaging the Ball. However, it should not be stored or left outside as prolonged expositor to the elements can degrade it over time.

The Vector® Ball randomly and instantly changes color (red, green, or blue) with each impact.

Vector® Ball color changes are initiated upon impact with almost any surface, including a hand or glove. It requires a firm impact with a rigid surface to change color and will not change color when thrown.

The batteries are not rechargeable however they are the highest quality available. Battery life is dependent on cycles and durations of use (workouts). However, the Vector® Ball is engineered to provide over six (6) months of live action Cognitive Vision Training (CVT).

Vector® Ball changes color for a split second upon impact and then locks-out for ½ a second before resetting.

Vector® Ball can be used in practically any sports training environment including open/covered/outside facilities. NOTE: Vector® Ball color changes are difficult to recognize or see in direct sunlight.

Yes, Cognitive Vision Training (CVT) with the Vector® Ball is used to improve athletic performance for practically every sport including Baseball, Softball, Lacrosse, Soccer, Basketball, Volleyball, Football, Hockey, Tennis, Cricket, Boxing, Mixed Martial Arts, Motor Sports, and more. Vector® Ball facilitates CVT drills that improve an athlete’s information processing ability (Speed of Reaction) and enhances their mental awareness during the full spectrum of game situations regardless of the sport.

Yes, Cognitive Vision Training (CVT) with the Vector® Ball is for all skill levels and all ages, youth to professional. Vector® Ball facilitates CVT drills that improve an athlete’s information processing ability (Speed of Reaction) and enhances their mental awareness during the full spectrum of game situations regardless of the athlete’s age or skill level.

The Vector® Ball can be used to transform standard training drills into cognitive vision training (CVT) drills.  The number of training drills the Vector® Ball can be used in are infinite.

Terms of Use

Inspect Vector® Ball prior to each use. Before using the Ball conduct a visual inspection checking for signs of damage, including but not limited to rips, cuts, holes, or gouges. Do not leave Vector® Ball outside, as prolonged exposure to elements (sun, rain, etc.) can degrade the Ball. The Vector® Ball contains electronic components housed within a hard-protective casing inside the ball. If the outer shell is damaged it is possible that the hard casing could separate from the Ball and strike a person or property. Do not use if damaged and stop using immediately if damage is noticed.
