Brief Summary:
Gait problems in hemineglect patient post stroke , vestibuloocular training plays a role in improving gait function, gait assessment using a model based study (Microsoft Kinect) for pre and post training assesment.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Hemiplegic Gait Other: vestibuloocular training Other: regular exercise training for hemiplegic patients Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
The syndrome of visuospatial neglect is a common consequence of unilateral brain injury. It is most often associated with stroke and is more severe and persistent following right hemisphere damage, with reported frequencies in the acute stage of up to 80%. This may result in gait disturbance, high levels of energy expenditure and increase the risk of falls. Vestibuleo-ocular training techniques are aimed at improving or even restoring visual function by training patients to detect stimuli in the blind hemifield and increase their overall sensitivity to them. The investigators propose a model based (Microsoft Kinect), a device can be used for assessment of spatiotemporal gait variables as well as gait kinematics.
