Functional improvements after vestibular rehabilitation

...which patients benefit most?

Gaze-stability is the term used to describe the eyes maintaining a stable position in space. Throughout normal activities of daily movement, such as walking and running, the head is often rotating side to side with a high rate of velocity.  

It is through the stability of the ocular mobility and the vestibular system, together called the vestibular-ocular reflex (VOR), that the body is able to stabilise what the eyes are looking at, and the body’s response needed to maintain balance. 

The aim of this study was to investigate whether vestibular rehabilitation improved functional outcomes in patients with vestibular hypofunction.
