Dr. Kahrhoff is the creator of the AMP System. He created the system because he saw a need for a system with a clear model of vision and an understanding that vision leads action. Not content with simply reproducing classic techniques on a screen or inside VR, Dr. Kahrhoff created a system where the expert in vision has exquisite control over training parameters to create truly multi-sensory training tasks capable of integrating vision, proprioception, balance, audition, and cognitive loading. Dr. Kahrhoff invested his time in creating the AMP System because of his conviction that it is not possible to train complex human performance in any area if you do not give the training physician the ability to integrate vision with other sensory systems and with motor.
Dr. Kahrhoff is the senior partner in a large multidisciplinary practice in the St. Louis area. He is a veteran of the USAF. Dr. Kahrhoff has taught in the areas of systemic and ocular pharmacology, ocular anatomy and physiology, physiological optics, and problem-based clinical analysis.
Dr. Kahrhoff has been involved in developing innovations in ocular drug delivery and regenerative ocular medicine. He is a co-inventor of "The Electronic Eyelid," a prosthetic blinking device designed for a child who had lost his ability to blink due a brain tumor and "The Freedom Reader," a low vision aid that converted printed text to speech.
