The MVRC uses state-of-the-art equipment and research techniques to study balance control and rehabilitate patients.
The centerpiece of the MVRC is a spatially-immersive display setting called the BNAVE (Balance NAVE Automatic Virtual Environment). This structure was modeled after the NAVE at Georgia Tech University. A virtual environment is displayed seamlessly across 3 vertical screens and a floor screen surrounding the subject, resulting in a field of view of 180° horizontally and 110° vertically. The continuous environment is coordinated by PCs that communicate through a LAN.
