Toward effective virtual reality intervention development planning for people with persistent postural-perceptual dizziness

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Persistent Postural-Perceptual Dizziness (PPPD) is defined byWorld Health organization as "Persistent non-vertiginous dizziness, unsteadiness, or both lasting three months". With the most common provocations are situations like up-right position, self-motions, looking at fast moving objects or disruptions in a crowded environment. Besides conventional treatments, scientists are looking at the possibility of using creative technology including virtual reality (VR) to assist improving symptoms. Here, we have proposed a strategy that would strengthen the initial phase of discussion between VR technologists and PPPD experts on developing an effective VR based intervention tool.
