The SLB™ was developed for in-office testing and training of spatial concepts.

The main purpose of this device is to assess the spatial localization skills of TBI or mTbi patient. Quite often after an acquired brain injury, regardless of the cause, the ability to properly locate an object accurately in space is altered. There is often a mid-line shift that occurs as well. The purpose of this instrument is to determine the direction and amount of this problem, and to see how lenses or prisms of various powers may be used in treatment.

Training

With the Board in the Horizontal Position:
There are many options for use of the SLB™. For work on the board when positioned horizontally, one may simply show the results to the patient as a feedback and retest multiple times. The visual feedback will improve the person's localization skills. Some doctors train with the selected amount of prism determined by the test. Others will reduce the amount and give feedback. Others still will train while using the reverse amount of prism. Some doctors prescribe the prism measured and have the patient wear constantly for six weeks or more and then re-evaluate. Numerous studies on spatial localization have been published and can be found on the internet.

With the Board in the Vertical Position:
Turn the board so that the millimeter measurements are on the bottom. Position the patient so that they are sitting directly in front of the board. Training can involve several different techniques.
