here's an abc story on thishttp://abclocal.go.com/kgo/story?sectio ... id=8708999
The vest, called Balance Wear, is Gibson-Horn's creation. She says it is designed to compensate for involuntary movement and loss of balance using a system of counter weights. Velcro panels inside allow therapists to move the cube shaped weights around as they test the effect on patients.
"If the patient has a balance problem, and I can identify the directional losses of balance, then we can treat those by strategically placing those light weights in the balance vest and right away you'll know that same treatment, whether or not your patient is going to benefit," said Gibson-Horn.
I would think it's worth a try. Seems like a simple clever approach to the problem. Better than taking a pill!
