OBJECTIVES We investigated whether long-term bilateral vestibular loss subjects could combine auditory biofeedback of trunk sway with their remaining natural sensory inputs on balance to provide an improved control of trunk sway. A successful integration of natural and artificial signals would provide a basis for a balance prosthesis. METHODS Trunk sway of 6 bilateral peripheral vestibular loss subjects (BVL) was recorded using either angular position- or velocity-based auditory feedback or… CONTINUE READING
