Noisy galvanic vestibular stimulation (nGVS) can boost vestibular sensory thresholds via stochastic resonance and research on nGVS as an intervention for vestibulopathy has accelerated recently. Recent research has investigated the effects and associated mechanisms of nGVS on balance and gait. nGVS has potential as an intervention for balance and gait-related deficits in vestibulopathy. but further research into the mechanisms underlying these effects and consensus on stimulation protocols are required.
