Virtual reality-based therapy for the treatment of balance deficits in patients receiving inpatient rehabilitation for traumatic brain injury
Balance deficits are one of the most commonly occurring and physically limiting sequlae that result from more severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness and applicability of using a commercially available virtual reality (VR) system as a treatment of these deficits for patients receiving inpatient rehabilitation for a primary diagnosis of TBI by conducting analyses of data collected as part of a pilot randomized controlled trial. The aims of this thesis were: (1) to examine the relationships between treatment received (VR or Extra Standard ...
