Persistent and inconsistent unsteadiness with nonvertiginous dizziness (persistent postural-perceptual dizziness (PPPD)) could negatively impact quality of life. This study highlights that the use of virtual reality (VR) systems offers bimodal benefits to PPPD, such as understanding symptoms and providing a basis for treatment. The aim is to develop an understanding of PPPD and its interventions, including current trends of VR involvement to extrapolate and re-evaluate VR design strategies. Therefore, recent virtual-reality-based research work that progressed in understanding PPPD is identified, collected, and analysed. This study proposes a novel approach to the understanding of PPPD, specifically for VR technologists, and examines the principles of effectively aligning VR development for PPPD interventions.
