Methods and Systems for Vertigo Treatment

Brief Description

Applications:

Only 20 % of the patients are correctly diagnosed and fewer are appropriately treated. Subjective visual vertical (SVV) method of diagnosis and normalization of the vestibular ablation has limited its diagnostic potential. Visual background also affects SVV. With a rotating background, the dynamic visual vertical (DVV) is normally shifted in the direction of rotation.

 

Advantages:

This invention would greatly assist in the correct diagnosis of migraine associated vertigo (MAV) and for rehabilitation of patients with MAV and peripheral vestibular disorders.
