TORONTO, June 19, 2019 /PRNewswire/ - Eyecarrot Innovations Corp., (Eyecarrot) (TSX-V: EYC |OTCQB: EYCCF) is excited to debut Binovi Balance alongside Binovi Touch during NATA's 70th Clinical Symposia and Athletic Training Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada, June 24th through to June 27th. The Binovi Touch, a Saccadic Fixator, is designed to help visual performance by improving reaction times, improving hand-eye coordination and visual perception, and increasing visual memory, all of which are integral components to improving overall athletic performance.
Binovi Balance is the latest addition to the Binovi Platform and extends Binovi Touch's versatility. Used together, they turn the tried-and-tested vision exercises of Binovi Touch with innovative new controls and variations that test the skills of even the most seasoned athletes. Binovi Balance is designed to be used as an input in conjunction with Binovi Touch, incorporating balance and gross motor skills to fine-motor and hand-eye coordination exercises to fully round out training programs or test full-body integration of senses to gain a better idea of how well an athlete is functioning.
"Binovi Balance's tight integration with our existing hardware/software adds an exciting new dimension to our dataset, allowing us to visualize and capture deliberate shifts in weight, tied to visual stimuli, in a novel way. Furthermore, it validates our development and manufacturing pipeline for new and innovative products and sets the stage for further releases near the end of the year." commented Sam Mithani, PhD., CTO, Eyecarrot Innovations Corp
The NATA Athletic Training Expo is a recognized forum for presentations of new research on approaches in prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation of injuries sustained during physical activity, including concussions, heat stroke, and overuse injuries.

In addition, the NATA Research and Education Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the National Athletic Trainers' Association (NATA).

Our vision is vital in how we view the world, to connect us with our surroundings, keep us safe, maintain sharpness of the mind, react to circumstances around us, and most importantly, compete. We are committed to building the next generation of athletic phenoms while sharpening the accuracy skills of active high-performance athletes." said Adam Cegielski, Founder & CEO, Eyecarrot Innovations Corp
