Posit Science acquired the UFOV technology last year and has incorporated it into four of the five InSight exercises. The fifth exercise focuses on visual processing speed.

Studies published in the Journal of American Medical Association, in the Journal of Gerontology, Human Factors and in Aging and Mental Health describe many of the benefits from the technology now commercialized in InSight.

"It has given me confidence and makes me feel that I can drive safely."

"Surveys show that keeping your driver's license is a top priority as we age," said Karlene Ball, Ph.D., a psychologist who studies the sensory and cogniti
