|ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT03579186|
Recruitment Status : Suspended (Enrollment and other trial activities have temporarily paused due to COVID-19 and are expected to resume in the future; This is not a suspension of IRB approval)
First Posted : July 6, 2018
Last Update Posted : April 28, 2020
Specific aim: To determine whether optokinetic stimulation can improve gait abnormalities.
Hypothesis: Optokinetic stimulation stimulates the vestibular system and can improve vestibular induced gait disorders.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Gait, Unsteady Vestibular Disorder||Device: OKS||Not Applicable|
|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|
|Estimated Enrollment :||20 participants|
|Intervention Model:||Single Group Assignment|
|Intervention Model Description:||Patients undergoing a clinical gait assessment will be recruited for this study. Those that consent to participate will complete their clinical gait assessment as part of their normal evaluation. Subjects will then complete a gait assessment while wearing experiencing optokinetic stimulation. The investigators will compare baseline gait and postural control before and during OKS stimulation.|

Patients undergoing a routine clinical gait assessment at the Brain Fit Club at BIDMC will have their posture and gait measured before and during optokinetic stimulation (OKS).
- Gait - (measured using a wireless 3D accelerometer) [ Time Frame: After 5 minutes of OKS ]Change in walking balance (lateral step deviation) as measured using a wireless 3D accelerometer
- Posture - (measured using a stationary force platform) [ Time Frame: After 5 minutes of OKS ]Change in standing balance (left-right deviation) as measured using a stationary force platform.
- Speed [ Time Frame: After 5 minutes of OKS ]Change in gait speed
