Immersive Lateral Agitiy and 3D Dimensional Reaction Time Simulation - Pilot Study 1

In the spring semester of 2023, Dr. Portia T. Williams and Hamilton Digital Studios will conduct a study using Hamilton Digital Studios Immersive Test Bed for Athletic Training and Performance Evaluations. A special thanks to Ms. Kayla Taylor and Ms. Alyxx Estrada for helping us test prototype 1.0. This test was a function test of the system. Prototype 1.1 will be tested in the first week of December. We will update the progression of this research on the website after each training session.
