The idea comes from the desire to transmit knowledge on well-being and sports performance to as many people as possible.
The analysis of more than two million tests, performed on situational sports professional athletes, has shown that the most important, and directly correlated factor, with performance and prevention of injuries is the efficiency of sensory inputs.
By measuring the directly referred qualities to the motor response, everything that occurs downstream of the central nervous system (strength, speed, agility, endurance, explosiveness, etc.), and at the same time those that refer to some sensory inputs (vision, vestibular system , somatosensory system), it is highlighted that athletes who perform better and have less injuries had very high values in sensory input tests, as a common feature, but did not always excel in motor response tests. On the contrary instead, athletes with very high values of motor response, but low values in sensory inputs, were more likely to have injuries and discontinuity in performance.
By comparing these data with realities other than sports and performance, mainly clinics specialized in neurodegenerative and acute diseases, we have had the confirmation that the training of sensory inputs is an important resource for the maintenance and recovery of a high level of well-being, mainly from the stimulation of brain plasticity.
