Video Games & Balance

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) may affect various physical aspects that induce balance issues.

Rehabilitation and physiotherapy programs are established approaches to treat these balance difficulties among MS patients.

Another strategy involves exergames, which refers to active video games that involve physical exercise.

Previous clinical trials performed produced inconsistent results.

Thus, researchers conducted a review and a meta-analysis of seven selected trials entailing exergames.

Results suggested exergames appear to be more effective in balance rehabilitation than other conventional methods used in MS patients.

These findings are yet to be confirmed in additional studies.
