21] reported that their eyehand coordination task (placing black checkers on the white fields of a checker board) could be done using a viewing condition with 325 phosphene dots. Whole Body Mobility Whole body mobility is important in daily living. We explored this category of tasks in various environments, representative of different every-day situations. First, a well-known indoor environment, a laboratory course with six known but randomly placed obstacles was used (Fig. 3a, ). Performance was measured as 34 a J.
Commercially available retinal implants are not yet able to satisfy such high expectations: Performance of implanted patients remains relatively low and there is extremely high variability between patients. Are state of the art, commercially available devices are really useful for their wearers? In a functional low-vision observer rated assessment, 65 % of the participating Argus II patients (N = 23) reported a positive or mild positive effect 3 years after implantation . This does not really tell much about the utility of the device in daily living which can probably best be estimated by analyzing the effective time the devices are used by the patients (on their own).
4 The ‘random forest’ task. (a) Example of a test configuration: empty dots represent ‘white trees’ to be avoided, filled dots represent ‘black trees’ to be localized and touched, starting point S, end point E. Arrows represent the starting point of dynamic obstacles (0–2 persons could cross the ‘forest’ at any time and had to be avoided). (b) Performance as a function of spatial resolution in pix/deg2 A viewing window with 500 pixels and representing an effective field of view of 33° × 23° appeared to be the best compromise for this task.
