Abstract: The purpose of this study was to examine changes in lower extremity joint angles of the ankle, knee, and hip as a result of virtual reality obstacle crossing technology and feedback within the virtual environment. Virtual reality obstacle crossing training has been shown to translate to safer obstacle crossing strategies in the real world. The goal was to better understand how the safer obstacle crossings are achieved potentially as a result of biomechanics of the joints and/or feedback in the environment.
