Niyati Trivedi | Dr. Deepali Hande


Abstract: Background: The aim of the study was to determine effectiveness of VRET in comparison with vestibular rehabilitation in individuals with acrophobia Methodology: The participants included in the study were divided into two groups randomly.30 participants were included out of which 15 were randomly grouped into Group A and other 15 in Group B. Group A was treated with virtual reality therapy and Group B was treated with vestibular training for 4 weeks Results: The results of the study showed mean and SD values of virtual reality therapy and vestibular exercises as 6.26±1.53 of group A and 8.06±1.57 of group B, with the unpaired t test value of 7.78 and p value<0.001. Thus the study showed that virtual reality therapy and vestibular training were significant in reducing the symptoms of acrophobia. Conclusion: The study concluded that both the virtual reality therapy and vestibular training were effective in reducing symptoms of acrophobia. On comparing the post results of both the groups it concluded that the virtual reality therapy was more effective than vestibular training.
