This symposium will focus on the application of virtual reality (VR) to clinical mobility assessment including quiet standing balance assessment, functional obstacle avoidance task, and driving safety assessment. We will highlight the differences and similarities between VR and real-word mobility assessments. We will discuss advantages and limitations of VR mobility assessments and the clinical usefulness of these tests.
To discuss advantages, limitations, and clinical usefulness of VR mobility assessments
To discuss the validity of a new comprehensive balance assessment and training tool
To identify the similarity of lower extremity joint angles during virtual and actual obstacle avoidance task
To discuss the validity of driving simulator testing against on-road driving tests.
