The C-Rod is a low cost, lightweight, portable vision therapy / vision rehabilitation tool for home use to help restore the eye movements that are compromised as a result of having a concussion.
The C-Rod was designed by an optometrist who understands how the visual system becomes dysfunctional when you have a concussion and how you can help yourself through your recovery.
Used In Physical Therapy, Optometry and Concussion Clinics in Canada and the USA

C-Rod's Patented Design
Two yellow tips are placed on the end of a grey rod to enhance contrast and not impact "color blind" users. The tips are separated by 40 cm to be consistent with standardized testing at a Harmon distance. The separation of the tips are fixed and maintains eye movements within 19 degrees so that head movement is not triggered under "normal" conditions. Therapy is on a fixed plane so that specific cranial nerves and motor neurons are activated thereby eliminating the more random therapy that results from holding two pencils as targets (which may not necessarily be on plane, stationary, or at a standardized separation) which is likely in clinical work and home therapy especially by persons with a visual-perceptual orientation disorder. The C-Rod can test and train saccadic eye movements, fixation, tracking as well as dynamic near point of convergence (NPC) and accommodation convergence skills. The C-rod can be used in isolation or to compliment other in-clinic training.
