Samenvatting

Risk of falling is a major problem among the senior population and it results due to poor postural control. Studies have shown the benefit of virtual reality-based training in postural control and adaptation, since it can be used to manipulate visual information. The present study aims to investigate whether changes in optic flow speed and symmetries through a virtual reality application can influence postural control measured in center of pressure excursion.
The findings of this study suggest that a dynamic virtual reality application with optic flow alternations has an influence on center of pressure excursion. As a result, further research should be conducted to test the effect of a dynamic application on postural control and adaptation, in the aim of enhancing sensorimotor rehabilitation.
