  • Tilting chair

    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,
