Eyecarrot Announces Vision Training Partnership Agreement with the Dallas Stars
Eyecarrot Innovations Corp., (Eyecarrot) (TSX-V: EYC | OTCQB: EYCCF) is proud to announce a new vision training partnership with the Dallas Stars of the National Hockey League (NHL). This partnership will utilize Binovi Vision Training Technology, engineered by Eyecarrot, in conjunction with the expert instruction of Dr. Charles Shidlofsky, a leader in sports vision and neuro-vision training.
“As the Dallas Stars vision specialist, I was thrilled to partner with the Binovi Team. This is a tool that we use to work on hand-eye coordination, reaction time, visual-cognitive activities and visual attention. Together, we were able to create baseline testing and then position-dependent training activities; we hope to personalize training activities by individual needs based on a comprehensive sports vision analysis. We are excited to help the players vision skills reach elite levels, which will make the ultimate product on the ice even better than it is already,”
Dr. Charles Shidlofsky, O.D., FCOVD, Board Certified in Vision Development and Vision Rehabilitation.
The Stars have won one Stanley Cup (’98-’99), been Conference champions twice (’98-’99 and ’99-’00), and topped the Central division 8 times, most recently in the 2015-16 season. With a dynamic group of young players and prospects making their way to the NHL, the Dallas Stars are poised to surge in the coming years.
“The high-speed, high-impact play of NHL-level hockey is the perfect example of a sport in which improved human performance can have a huge impact. Much has been done in recent years to improve player health and performance from both a nutritional and bio-mechanical standpoint, but vision performance training is still relatively new and perfectly positioned to disrupt training regimens. We’re looking forward to working with the Stars’ training staff to develop and implement new protocols to help the next generation of hockey players be the absolute best they can be,”
Adam Cegielski, Founder + CEO of Eyecarrot Innovations Corp.
In addition to investing into the continued development of their professional hockey players, the Dallas Stars Foundation invests into its greater community by creating unique programs that nurture and enrich the lives of those in need.
Eyecarrot Innovations Corp looks forward to its continued support of the Dallas Stars and Dr. Charles Shidlofsky.
