Control of balance requires complex integration of sensory and motor systems. Balance measurement is often over-simplified, preventing balance deficits from being identified and treated after mTBI. Our central hypothesis is that chronic balance deficits after mTBI result from impairments in central sensorimotor integration that may be helped by rehabilitation. This research has two objectives 1 to characterize balance deficits in people with mTBI, and 2 to use a novel auditory biofeedback device to improve measures central sensorimotor integration and balance control.
