View Full Version : Tilting chair

05-13-2002, 01:38 AM
Hello - I am considering a study of individuals with stroke to determine
their perception of vertical when seated. Some patients post-stroke have a
tilted perception of upright. I am looking for a chair into which the
patient can be supported and secured which is on a platform. The platform
would tilt the patient and chair left and right in the frontal plane and
the patient would be asked to indicate when they are in a vertical
position. The angle of tilt would be recorded.

Does anyone know of such a device or something similar? Info about
specific vendors/researchers would be helpful. I will post findings in
about 2 weeks.

Thank you in advance,
