Evaluating balance with virtual reality
Evaluating balance with virtual reality (April 27, 2015 - Insidermedicine)
From California - Research published in Ophthalmology finds that virtual reality may help evaluate balance control in glaucoma patients. Researchers studied 42 glaucoma patients and 38 healthy controls. Participants wore an Oculus Rift headset—a virtual reality system that can also measure balance and movement. The system found that participants with glaucoma made balance adjustments that were an average of 30-40% more pronounced, and that those without the disease were able to regain balance more quickly than those with glaucoma.
