DREX Training Details

The DREX training app can be accessed on Apple iPad or Android tablet. The app is not available on mobile phones.

Once the app is downloaded you will first need to register and provide some details.

After registering an account you will firstly need to complete an assessment. The assessment contains a range of different tasks including perimetry, visual search and a quality of life questionnaire. After completing this assessment, you will have a choice between Exploration training and Reading training. Once you pick one of these options you will complete a number of rounds of this training type in which you will be assessed periodically. After three assessments you will be able to switch to the training type you did not pick initially. It is important to pick the type of training you wish to improve most as once you select a training type it will be some time before you can complete the other type. The flowchart below demonstrates this.
