A Cutting-Edge Approach to Vestibular Rehabilitation

When it comes to overcoming dizziness, vertigo or imbalance brought on by a concussion or a disorder, our Vestibular Rehabilitation Program is equipped with the latest technology to diagnose and treat our patients—returning them to doing what they love as quickly as possible.

BPPV Testing and Canalith Repositioning Procedures

Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) is the most common type of vertigo—half of people 70 years old or greater will experience an attack. Our therapists are trained to test for BPPV and treat based on their findings using a series of head and body movements (repositioning procedures).

Computerized Dynamic Visual Acuity Testing (CDVAT)

The computerized dynamic visual acuity testing we perform provides us valuable information about your visual vestibular ocular reflex. The vestibular ocular reflex is the reflex that keeps our vision stable when we turn our heads.  Abnormalities of this reflex may cause dizziness, blurred vision or a sensation of words moving when someone attempts to read.

Gans Sensory Organization Performance Test (Gans SOP)

The Gans SOP is a clinical tool that provides a measure of balance function that is sensitive to vestibular deficits. This test is a widely recognized tool in the field and by the American Institute of Balance.

RealEyes xDVR

These binocular goggles allow for observation and video recording of your eyes on a computer monitor during testing or while performing therapy. The goggles utilize infrared technology to allow our therapists to record involuntary eye movement in the dark. The infrared goggles allow the therapists to visualize abnormalities that might not be visible in room light.

Interactive 3D Balance Retraining Activities (TRAZER)

The TRAZER Health Risk Assessment (HRA) is a holistic solution for concussion assessment and return-to-play programs. Unlike traditional concussion assessment devices that evaluate static processes, TRAZER HRA’s objective data correlates to your whole body’s recovery. By simulating game play, TRAZER HRA prompts sports-specific movements that enable responses to cognitive challenges to be measured at progressively higher metabolic rates. The visual stimulation during progressively difficult movements assists with balance retraining and decreasing dizziness.

inVision

Coming soon.

inVision will allow our experts to quantify your ability to maintain visual acuity and stable gaze while actively moving your head. This is a key factor in performing daily activities, as image stabilization deficits are usually greater when your head is moving toward the more severely impaired ear, particularly in the presence of unilateral peripheral loss.

Natus VSR Sport portable balance system
