Virtual reality therapy for rehabilitation of balance in the elderly: a systematic review and META-analysis

Abstract: Virtual reality therapy (VRT) has clinical indications in rehabilitation programs for the elderly; however, there is still no consensus on the recovery of body balance. The objective of this review was to summarize the effects of physical therapy interventions with VRT in the rehabilitation of balance in the elderly. The studies were identified via a systematic search in the databases PubMed, SciELO, LILACS and PEDro from 2010 onward. Clinical trials with interventions that involved VRT in the elderly were inc… Show more

“…No study reported the effects of dual-task training, virtual reality training, or perturbation-based training. A review by de Amorim et al 37 concluded that findings of studies using virtual reality training in elderly populations showed promising results. In a review by Ghai et al, 38 beneficial effects of dual-task training in fall-prone elderly populations were demonstrated.…”

“…an increasingly useful tool to overcome the lack of human and economic resources associated with rehabilitation medicine, the clinical efficacy of VR rehabilitation compared with traditional training techniques remains to be elucidated. [1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8]…”

“…Balance is essential for walking, and walking ability is a critical basic function associated with the quality of life. [1][2][3][4][5] Walking is a harmonized physical activity requiring (1) lower-extremity muscle strength, (2) postural or trunk balancing ability, and (3) dual-task processing. [5][6][7][8] Whereas lower-extremity muscle strength can be increased by various methods, no effective quantitative approach has been identified to train for balance and dual-task processing skills with the subject in the sitting position.…”

“…This, in turn, has supported its deployment for both clinical and non-clinical samples of elderly people and young adults (García-Betances et al, 2015;De Tommaso et al, 2016;Plancher and Piolino, 2017). Within medical and neuropsychological settings, VR has been extensively applied as an assessment and a rehabilitation tool for elderly people suffering from consequences of a traumatic brain injury (Aida et al, 2018;Alashram et al, 2019;Maggio et al, 2019), for poststroke patients (Henderson et al, 2007;Saposnik and Levin, 2011;Laver et al, 2017), and for spatial memory and balance (Allain et al, 2014;Serino et al, 2017;Gerber et al, 2018;Soares et al, 2018), among other applications (see Plancher and Piolino, 2017;Moreno et al, 2019). Crucially, VR allows the therapy to be tailored in a controlled way, according to each disease starting from a continuous assessment of the individual's behaviors.…”
