Depth Clues Assist with Timing

With the 2018 ABCA convention fast approaching, I want to begin sharing some of the science behind the V-Flex intellectual property patents so attendees will have a better understanding of implicit training and why we are so very different than electronic based training systems. We have chosen to use the principles of quantum, or light physics, as our foundational principles. The brain has an intimate relationship with light and V-Flex simply enhances that relationship to obtain a more vivid representation of space.

Every hitter intends to hit the ball hard when they go to the plate and being on time is extremely critical to that process. Our data suggest that balls are hit hard 2% of the time while strikes are hit hard 18% of the time. So why is there such a big difference? A ball traveling through a space that is absent of spatial information like shade or shadowing, presents the brain with a difficult challenge. The absence of certain types of spatial data handicaps the brain and forces it to swing without being able to fully utilize spatial cues. That is where we begin our training.

Realizing that time and space are both emergent is extremely important. We can place visual data at any point along the balls path and the brain will respond to the additional information appropriately. Because of the speed of light, information sent to the visual cortex is processed before a cognitive perception can occur. Which means when we provide a hitters brain visual data we are altering numerous levels of processing. Pre-emergent forms of spatial information are "necessary' for the brain to function beyond its best natural state. Our perceptual understanding of a particular space is totally dependent upon the sensory data processed by the brain prior to the event horizon.

Any object traveling through space (baseball or softball) can be enhanced with proper types of information. Providing absolute depth clues made from emergent neurological data along the balls path enables the brain to better predict where the ball is and where it will be regardless of the speed or spin of the ball. Priming neurons representing a designated strike zone alters the probability of the brain processing at its maximum potential. The pictorial above is a simple illustration showing how much more vivid a space can become when details are filled in. This "filling in" isn't a mental process, it’s a neurological one.

The major difference between V-Flex and all of the other forms of vision, or brain training, is our attention to the physical environment. We take the natural hitting environment and implicitly enhance it to induce a faster, more precise response by the brain. Electronic based systems like ABC and XYZ are focused on increasing the speed of the decision making process. They can train the cognitive mind to make faster decisions through cognitive exercises, but they run into the same problem that Lumosity did; transfer-ability.

https://www.ftc.gov/news-events/press-releases/20... The gains aren't transferable beyond the initial games or exercises. While Lumosity’s website provides links to 15 studies that they say support the better brain claims, the Guardian has reported that such games may be no more effective than crossword puzzles and that brain training games make users better at the games themselves but not much else. In other words, it’s unclear whether such brain games improves your brain’s overall performance or whether over time you get better only at the games

If there are transferable results from practice to the game then you have a valid practice procedure that correlates to improved game day performance. Our patented procedure enables us to make claims that others can't because hitters training on V-Flex are expressing a higher strike swinging efficiency during games. One of the main reasons for true (+) results is because our practice environment and game environment are physically the same. We are fortunate to provide products that enhance the electromagnetic environment within a hitter’s brain, therefore the improvements are relative to a specific training objective which is Swinging at Strikes!
