The power of thumbroll
Learn more about the technology that powers thumbroll and is being adopted by the healthcare community worldwide.
Why thumbroll works
Place supinated forearms on hard surface with fingers supported on towel to provide patient comfort. Testing should be done in a quiet area.
1 photograph is worth 1,000 words?
Images are simple. Text is complicated.
The mind absorbs visuals faster and more effectively than text, which requires higher order neural processing. The human brain processes visual imagery faster than text; learners can “scan and maintain [an] entire image without using all the resources of their working memory” (Verdi 315). On the other hand, when “students read a text, it is processed serially and… exhausts most, if not all, of the available working memory space” (Verdi 315). Visuals help one perceive information that would otherwise be more difficult or lengthy to understand and internalize via the written word.
Visuals working alongside text are critical to most effectively learn and train. We need the 1 photograph AND the 1,000 words to reach our maximum potential.

To daydream or not to daydream?
The human brain is most receptive to learning when it is actively engaged in the material.
Research shows that the “integration of active learning and teaching strategies… are needed.” By integrating active learning systems and strategies, “students demonstrated improved understanding, memory recall,… [as well as] improved confidence” (Sika-Paotonu).
The thumbroll patented-protected roller allows one to actively engage with the material. Learners now roll through content at their own pace, see each step of the process, better understand and more effectively recall material.

Do you see the triangle before it's complete?
Save your time and energy. You only need a portion of the lines to identify the triangle. Similarly, you only need the critical pieces of information to identify a process or protocol & see the “story” clearly. thumbroll uses this Gestalt law of perceptual organization to convey processes faster & more efficiently, while using less information.
It’s faster than a video, it’s more efficient and yet, you retain the same amount of information. Instead of watching a 5, 10, or 20 minute video at 1.5x or 2x the speed, roll through thumbroll, review the steps, analyze the challenging areas & absorb the information faster & more efficiently.
