Virtual Reality For Balance Improvement

The researchers, based at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC) and North Carolina State University (NC State), said the system could be used to detect balance impairments early, and reverse those impairments and prevent falls. The team have ongoing studies in elderly people and plans for studies in people with multiple sclerosis to help develop early-detection procedures for balance problems. This setup allowed the researchers to see in details how specific muscle groups that control postural sway and foot placement work to correct a perceived loss of balance.
