Determining the validity and acceptability of the virtual reality choice stepping reaction task in older persons

This project intends to use virtual reality to investigate the risk of falls in older people. As Virtual Reality assessments/interventions have rarely been investigated in older people, we would also like to examine the acceptability of Virtual Reality. 

If Virtual Reality is going to be used clinically, the development of tools must be comparable or better than standard assessment tools currently being used clinically. We will compare the performance of the virtual reality assessment to current measures being used clinically. The experiences of older people using the Virtual Reality tool will be collected and examined and the tool will be modified through this feedback, to create a better more user-friendly tool. 

Within this study, we will assess the feedback and make modifications to ensure the best possible experience for older people using Virtual Reality
