COGS and the OSCLR Effect
COGS® Glasses display non-threatening motion in the peripheral vision. This particular type of motion has a calming effect allowing the wearer to focus more intently and remain alert longer. This type of visual display has been named OSCLR.
The OSCLR Effect was first discovered in 2015 by Dr. Andy Bevilacqua during his doctoral research. OSCLR stands for Optically Stimulated Cognitive Load Regulation and has been demonstrated to help improve learning, increase retention and promote concentration by blocking distractions and clear brain fog.
The Optically Stimulated Cognitive Load Regulation of COGS® is a chemical-free alternative that stimulates a natural process in the brain enabling the wearer to learn more faster and stay alert longer.
