Many studies have been carried out on the effects of occlusion goggles on performance in various sports.
Chin Up Goggles have been proven to be an effective skill acquisition practice tool that may result in a positive transfer of skills from the training environment to game situations. Here are some articles about the science behind the goggles:
- Scientific Eyesight Test - We recently partook, with the assistance of a research participant, a scientific eye test to prove the level of degrees that Chin Up Goggles occlude the lower portion of your vision. The eye test which was carried out is the standard Irish National Eyesight test and the results, which are in degrees, can be transferred… Continue Reading
- Science behind Chin Up Goggles Phase 2 - Introduction and Background Visual Occlusion is the process of limiting the vision of an object, limb or critical information source from the visuomotor workspace. Visual occlusion can be used in sport as a training tool to improve an athlete’s skill level. Previous research conducted using CU Sports occlusion goggles in basketball showed a significant improvement… Continue Reading
- Science behind Chin Up Goggles Phase 1 - Research Methods. 15 male basketball players with a minimum of 10 years playing experience were selected as participants. Each was assigned to one of three groups (occlusion, practice, control). Each group completed a pre, post, retention and transfer test. They were required to perform 10 trials of a dribble sequence (dribble, dribble, crossover) which totalled… Continue Reading
