This program is designed to assist individuals who are experiencing balance problems or any of the following symptoms:

  • Oculomotor assessment (eye movements)
  • Physical measurements of muscle strength, range of motion, posture, coordination
  • Balance
  • Movements including standing, walking and rolling in different environments and how they affect symptoms
