Rehabilitation of Balance Disorders: BalanceVR
BalanceVR is a set of Virtual Reality Assessment and Rehabilitation software packages developed specifically for the treatment of Balance Disorders, Vestibular Rehabilitation... a multi-sensory rehabilitation that has become indispensable.

A precise answer adapted to your daily life:
VIRTUAL REALITY, A REAL BENEFIT FOR YOUR PATIENTS:
Some of the exercises available in the BalanceVR Pack:
Optokinetic stimulation module fully adapted to Virtual Reality! Physiological Optokinetics Optimized Physiological Optokinetics with no specific installation required: 3D, random pattern. Optimal and standardized conditions.
Indications : Visual Dependence, Persistent Postural Perceptual Dizziness (PPPD), Falls Prevention, Balance Disorders
Example of possible exercise:
Visual Dependence: Create a sensory Visuo-Vestibular conflict by following the protocol included: first test session (for the patient's tolerance), then progressive stimulations starting with a realistic environment in slow horizontal rotation, to finish vertically over longer sessions.
Good to know: 6 specific environments, including one reproducing the optokinetic ball of yesteryear projected in a room with adjustable dimensions (in addition to many other parameters such as brightness, diameter, space between holes etc...).
Solution for the work of linear optical flow and radial optokinetics for the management of Scrolling Syndromes. Rehabilitation of the patient's balancing strategy as well as reduction of the weight of the visual input. Software creating linear scrolling for vestibular disorders but also general balance work. Flow orientation in 9 directions.
Indications : Visual Dependence, Persistent Postural Perceptual Dizziness (PPPD), Falls Prevention, Balance Disorders, Proprioception
Example of a possible exercise:
Proprioceptive disorder/resumption of support : The first session will be the "test session" foreseen in the protocol included to test the patient's tolerance. Then, in progression, the scrolling will be done in a linear way and then using the different directions to provoke destabilization targeted towards the deficient sides.
Balance Sheet: hCTSIB VR
ModifiedSensory Organization Test: evaluation of Balance and the different systems that contribute to it in isolation.
6 successive sequences in only 3 minutes: on stable ground: eyes open, eyes closed, slaved vision then the same 3 sequences on unstable ground. Graphical assessment with the rate of use of each sensory input: Somesthesia, Vestibular, Visual, and Visual Dependency score. Statokinesigrams, fine analysis by wavelets, polar views.
Indications : Differential balance and posture assessment.
Dynamic Visual Acuity revisited! Complete software for evaluation and rehabilitation of image stabilization during high-frequency head movements (oscillopsia).
Precise assessments performed on screen: patient/screen distance measured at each assessment. Rehabilitation on screen or in the virtual reality mask. High amplitude DSA: 360° physiological movements. Anticipatory jerk work.
Indications : Unilateral or Bilateral vestibular deficiency, Aging of vestibular function (Presbyvestibulia), Reintegration of rapid head movements after a vestibular incident such as BPPV, Cervicalgia (speed/amplitude work).
Evaluation of the Subjective Visual Vertical, a kind of "internal plumb line", without visual field. Fully customizable protocol: number of measurements, initial angles, customized sequence...
Precise measurements with head tilt angle.
Optimal and reproducible conditions without special installation.
Indications: Neurocentral (Stroke, Pusher Syndrome), Peripheral Vestibular Impairment
Crowd simulator in 6 environments: shopping center (large hall or aisle), small store, hallway, subway, pedestrian crossing.
Indications: Treating Scrolling Syndromes (SSDP) in ecological conditions, visual vertigo, and reintegration of Activities of Daily Living (ADL). Treatment of Ochlophobia, Claustrophobia and Agoraphobia. Analysis of the NSU = reintegration in ecological conditions and observation of the strategy.
Example of a possible exercise:
Situation in the middle of a shopping mall lobby for patients who are afraid of falling. These patients most often stay close to the walls or to something that allows them to catch up. Immersion in the center, without any catch possible with a progressive flow of passers-by and a progressive (adjustable) proximity.
And much more, not to mention all the new features developed every month.
