SIG 6 Perspectives Vol. 18, No. 1, April 2014

This issue of Perspectives considers novel and emerging issues concerning assessment of balance control and vestibular function. We first provide an overview of the contributions of the vestibular system and other systems utilized in balance control and dynamic gait. We then describe a novel training approach that integrates students in audiology and physical therapy in a transdisciplinary assessment program. Finally, we present an overview of vestibular assessment in the post-cochlear implanted patient, with emphasis on the emerging issues particular to a patient with bilateral cochlear implantation.
