Dynavision  is a high tech machine intended to help patients improve their visual awareness and hand-eye coordination.

Genesis Health System rolled up the machine about six months ago, and the results have been impressive.

Dynavision is a lightboard with sixty four switches. The switches light up at random, and the patient clicks on them.

The challenge is to locate the flashing lights wherever and whenever they appear on the machine.

Seventy eight year old Paul Hofmann had a stroke a few months ago. Paul was not able to pass his driving test. Enter Dynavision. Paul experimented with the machine for weeks.

Occupational Therapist Sue Clemens worked with him.  The Dynavision board was set up so that Paul could concentrate on the lights on the right side of the machine.

Sue Clemens says over time, Paul got quicker on the machine. His scores improved as did his eyesight, especially on the his right side.   He eventually  passed his driving test and got his license.

The therapy machine is also used with patients who have brain and spinal cord injuries. Athletes use it to help improve their visual skills.

Dynavision provides an instant printout of a patient's results. That information is used to develop treatment plans for individual patients.
