The purpose of this study was to assess the influence of electrotactile feedback on postural control performance during binaural galvanic vestibular stimulation (GVS). Postural equilibrium was measured with a computerized hydraulic platform in 10 healthy adults (6M, 4F, 24-65 y). Feedback of anterior-posterior (AP) and mediallateral (ML) body sway was derived from a 2-axis linear accelerometer mounted on a torso belt and displayed on a 144-point electrotactile array held against the anterior… CONTINUE READING
