The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the BrainPort balance device in improving balance in people with balance deficits due to stroke.
Following baseline assessments, subjects participate in 5 consecutive days (10 hours) of clinic training with the BrainPort balance device with a Physical Therapist. Assessments are repeated at the end of clinic training. Following clinic training, subjects take the device home to use for two (2) 20 minute training sessions each day. Subjects return to the clinic for one (1) day of testing after using the device at home for 7 weeks.

Narrowing or stricture of any part of the CAROTID ARTERIES, most often due to atherosclerotic plaque formation. Ulcerations may form in atherosclerotic plaques and induce THROMBUS formation. Platelet or cholesterol emboli may arise from stenotic carotid lesions and induce a TRANSIENT ISCHEMIC ATTACK; CEREBROVASCULAR ACCIDENT; or temporary blindness (AMAUROSIS FUGAX).
