Abstract

Balance disorder is a prevalent condition among adults and vestibular rehabilitation is the main non-medical option for treating the affected individuals.

The advantages and limitations of the conventional vestibular rehabilitation methods are highlighted accordingly. The use of virtual reality system as a promising rehabilitative option is reviewed as intended, particularly in treating those with balance disorders. Finally, an emphasis is made on the importance of having culturally specific virtual reality systems for vestibular rehabilitation among patients from different ethnic groups.
