About

Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) is accompanied by gait and balance problems while dual tasking. During a 6 to 8 weeks training with the BioRescue (virtual reality), institutionalized elderly people with MCI will relearn dual tasks in combination with balance. Afterwards, the transferring effect on gait in general, balance and cognition will be examined.
