OKS for Gait Instability

This is a pilot study designed to determine whether or not the optokinetic stimulation improves gait in patients with gait abnormalities, specifically vestibular induced gait disorders. The study population will consist of patients already receiving a gait assessment through the Brain Fit Club (BFC) at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. This gait assessment involves walking and posture evaluations. Patients will complete a gait assessment as part of their normal BFC evaluation. Those who consent to participate in the study will then complete a gait assessment while receiving optokinetic stimulation. The investigators will compare baseline gait and postural control before and during OKS stimulation.
