Gait impairments and obstacle negotiation

Gait impairments and obstacle negotiation

Visual cues during locomotion help guide many aspects of gait such as initiation, obstacle negotiation, and termination. Assessments of the kinematic structure of human locomotion are often assessed by motor rehabilitation researchers to understand the gait impairments that occur after nervous system damage. Eye tracking will help these researchers learn how the nervous system integrates visual information to acquire new motor skills as well as how it relearns and compensates following CNS damage or with neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s disease.

Visuomotor coordination of everyday motor tasks

Visuomotor coordination of everyday motor tasks

Visual input is a key regulator of our postural control system, especially during dynamic motor tasks. Rehabilitation researchers can utilize eye tracking to assess the role vision plays in everyday motor tasks such as climbing stairs and lifting a cup of coffee, as well as how this complex visuomotor coordination is effected following nervous system damage, degeneration, and with aging.

Fine digit manipulation after injury, disease and aging

Fine digit manipulation after injury, disease and aging

Gaze plays a large role in motor planning and goal-directed movement execution, especially during reaching, grasping and fine digit manipulation. Stroke and other neurological damage can often cause impaired hand-eye coordination and finger dexterity. Rehabilitative strategies to improve these skills require accurate visual cues to guide the motor task completion. Eye tracking can provide valuable information on the visuomotor disruptions that can occur with aging and after neurological injury or disease.
