ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J. -- Most law enforcement officials want to shed their eyewear when training, but there are those who are discovering that wearing glasses can actually help their aim and reaction time. That’s if they are wearing a new revolutionary technology eyewear by MJ Impulse. These patented made strobe glasses are a training tool that has a positive influence on combatant performance by means of visual training.
The basic premise of the glasses is to stress or load the visual perceptual, visual motor and visual proprioceptive systems during training so that the police officer can be better prepared for conflict.
"Law enforcement has trained using strobe lights in dark rooms for many years,” said MJ Impulse CEO Ben White “However, the police officer were confined to small training areas. Our glasses allow those in training, for the first time ever, to work out in real time and in real training scenarios.”
The glasses help achieve better visual concentration, eye-hand coordination and proprioceptive balance. With consistent training of at least three times a week, improvement is typically seen within 5 to 7 weeks.
"We have been using strobe type glasses for many years at the Air Force Academy and the new Impulse glasses are by far more superior than any we have ever used....they are user friendly, have a greater capability for exercise and much more durable than any of the competitors. We use them with many of our intercollegiate teams including basketball, baseball, football, hockey, and tennis. We are also utilizing them in our new state-of-the-art "battle vision" program, very similar to our sports vision training, with our security forces at Lackland Air Force Base, Texas,” says Coach Al White, Director of Sports Vision at the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado. “This new program will better prepare our Air Force Security Forces troops being deployed throughout the world.
