Research Study Using the Robo-Pong

Jena Newgarden
We received some interesting results from a study by Wichita State University, Department of Psychology, using our Newgy Robo-Pong 2050 Digital Table Tennis Robot for some studies to use table tennis to improve visual functions.

With just two days’ training by playing against the Robo-Pong table tennis robot, participants (most younger adults, along with a few older adults) significantly improved their eye-hand coordination, and visual functions in processing speed and divided attention, which  are critically associated with driving safety. This findings have very important implications in that the table tennis robot could be potentially used as an intervention device to improve perceptual and cognitive functions for older adults.

More data continues to be collected from older adults and will add another component to the study, in which we’ll test the training effect on balance keeping.

We will post more results from this ongoing study as we receive them.
