To investigate static posturographic characteristics during balance control under virtual moving surround (VMS) using force platform and head mount display (HMD) device in patients with chronic ankle sprain as compared with that of normal adults.
Ten patients with chronic ankle sprain and 24 healthy adults participated. Center of pressure (COP) parameters were obtained for 20 seconds using force platform as total path distance and total sway area in following conditions (1) comfortable standing with opened and closed eyes, (2) VMS delivered using HMD with four different moving patterns. The virtual moving patterns composed of close-far, superior-inferior tilting (pitch), right-left tilting (roll) and horizontal rotation (yaw) movement.
No significant difference was found between patients with chronic ankle sprain and healthy adults on comfortable standing with both open and closed eyes. But, patients revealed significantly increased total path distance and sway area of COP on all VMS conditions.
These results showed that under VMS conditions patients with the weaker balance control problem were more sensitive to balance control than simple comfortable standing conditions with opened and closed eyes. (J Korean Acad Rehab Med 2005; 29: 297-302)
