Visual Cues that Improve Walking for People with Movement Disorders - Study Shows Small Change in Arrangement Can Make a Big Difference in Improvement Gained
Date:2/24/2010

ion of interest is the significance of incorporating a clear distinction between left and right. The arrangement of cues in a checkerboard pattern is matched to the geometry of human locomotion. In the context of walking, this geometry represents not only, as transverse lines, the reach of the leg in every step, but also the transition from one leg to the other."

Study participants that used a checkerboard pattern distincting left from right improved twice as much as participants that used transverse lines with no such distinction.

The GaitAid, a portable home-use device used in this study, includes a pair of headphones and specialized goggles which display visual cues and play auditory cues. It was perfected over the last decade to help the brain organize, balance and control the walking body.

No training is needed, simply put the device on and start walking. Walking sessions from 5-30 minutes with the GaitAid improve the body's sense of position and movement, balancing steps and enhancing the sense of timing for these movements. With practice, new neural connections are created in the brain so the improvement lasts even when the device is not in use.
