Background And Purpose: This was a double-blinded randomized controlled study to investigate the effects of once-daily incremental vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR) training over 1 week in people with chronic peripheral vestibular hypofunction.
Methods: A total of 24 patients with peripheral vestibular hypofunction were randomly assigned to intervention (n = 13) or control (n = 11) groups. Training consisted of either x1 (control) or incremental VOR adaptation exercises, delivered once daily for 15 minutes over 4 days in 1 week. Read More
