The aim of this study is to assess if early supported vestibular rehabilitation can reduce dizziness and improve daily life activities in patients with acute vestibular injury. Our study ...
The aim of the present study will be to discover possible (i) improvements achievable in unilateral vestibular hypofunction patients using a self-assessed head-mounted device (HMD)-based g...
The aim is to assess the effects of virtual reality-based intervention on vestibular functions in in patients with chronic peripheral unilateral vestibular hypofunction.
The purpose of this study is to examine the effectiveness of acceptance and commitment therapy with vestibular rehabilitation in addition to clinical management for chronic dizziness, in c...
Balance of the body is achieved by the coordination of three major systems, visual, vestibular and proprioceptive sensation and by the reflexive control of the limbs. In myelopathy, factor...
This article is focused on the peculiar features of diagnostics and treatment of dizziness and vertigo in the patients presenting with vestibular neuronitis. The authors present the detailed overview ...
To evaluate the effectiveness of reinforced feedback in virtual environment (RFVE) treatment combined with conventional rehabilitation (CR) in comparison with CR alone, and to study whether changes ar...
To compare virtual reality (VR) combined with functional electrical stimulation (FES) to cyclic FES for improving upper extremity function and health-related quality of life in patients with a chronic...
Virtual reality has been increasingly used in research on balance rehabilitation because it provides robust and novel sensory experiences in controlled environments. We studied 19 healthy young subjec...
The recent general availability of low-cost virtual reality headsets, and accompanying 3D engine support, presents an opportunity to bring the concept of chemical space into virtual environments. Whil...
Treatment technique in a virtual environment which allows the participant to experience a sense of presence in an immersive, computer-generated, three-dimensional, interactive environment that minimizes avoidance behavior and facilitates emotional involvement. (from Curr Psychiatry Rep (2010) 12:298)
A number of tests used to determine if the brain or balance portion of the inner ear are causing dizziness.
The vestibular part of the 8th cranial nerve (VESTIBULOCOCHLEAR NERVE). The vestibular nerve fibers arise from neurons of Scarpa's ganglion and project peripherally to vestibular hair cells and centrally to the VESTIBULAR NUCLEI of the BRAIN STEM. These fibers mediate the sense of balance and head position.
Disorder characterized by nausea, vomiting, and dizziness, possibly in response to vestibular disorientation or fluid shifts associated with space flight. (From Webster's New World Dictionary)
Vestibular nucleus lying immediately superior to the inferior vestibular nucleus and composed of large multipolar nerve cells. Its upper end becomes continuous with the superior vestibular nucleus. (From Dorland, 28th ed)
