Abstract

This investigation was conducted to evaluate the effects of training with stroboscopic spectacles (StrobeSpex) on anticipation timing. Quantitative values of anticipation timing were gathered with the Bassin Anticipation Timer before, immediately after, and twenty four hours after a two week training period with the StrobeSpex. Forty-four optometry students served as subjects for the study. Final statistical comparisons, using repeated measures analysis of variance and partial analyses of averages, indicate no statistically significant improvement in anticipation timing but decreased variability subsequent to StrobeSpex training. Future investigation of StrobeSpex effectivity may include the use of faster testing and/or training speeds in addition to research of other athletic abilities that may simultaneously be affected.
