The BATAK Pro Reaction Wall: What is it?

Some of you may remember that one-off P.E session at school where they brought in a reaction wall and your competitive side came out in full force. If not, don’t worry – feel free to visit Supersonic and have a go on ours!

What is a BATAK reaction wall?

Installed in one of Supersonic’s brand new studios, the BATAK LITE reaction wall improves reaction, hand-eye coordination and stamina by enabling users to train under simulated ‘sports like’ conditions, whilst also providing an element of fun and competition that is so often lacking in training.

Simply put, a BATAK Pro Reaction Wall is a large metal frame with eight LED lights attached in various places. When you see a light turn on… you hit it! Seems straight forward, but it’s easier said than done. You have a limited amount of time to hit as many lights as you can to try and beat the highest score.

This piece of kit is often used for athlete, police and army training, and is designed to:

  • Improve reaction times
  • Enhance hand-eye co-ordination
  • Boost stamina and fitness levels

Why you should improve your reaction time

Reacting is hardwired into us through voluntary or involuntary instincts, however some people’s reaction times aren’t as sharp as others. Due to the fact that a reaction time is the overall length of time it takes for a person to respond to various stimuli that they encounter throughout their lives, it is a critical skill for all people.

The length of time it takes to react to a stimuli depends on the signal pathways and nerve-based connections within our bodies and minds. The key things which factor into the speed of these connections include:

  • Age
  • State of mind
  • Physical fitness levels
  • How intense the stimuli is
  • How alert we are

Who will benefit from using it?

An example of someone who would heavily benefit from using our Batak wall would be an older client whose ability to react has slowed down over the years. By boosting our overall reaction times we are shortening the time it takes to respond, enabling us to be mentally and physically prepared for quick responses needed in day to day life.

Athletes also heavily depend on reaction times in their sports, and optimizing their time aids better performance.

Aside from the benefits, the BATAK wall is super fun and will no doubt bring out your competitive side.
