New Methods of Vestibular Rehabilitation
Headset used for at home exercises
There is currently no good medical or surgical treatment for loss of peripheral vestibular function. This is also a common etiology of vertigo symptoms that can be caused by clinical conditions such vestibular neuritis, labyrinthitis, trauma, tumors, and surgery. A current project in the lab involves a home based vestibular rehabilitation technique that allows patients to do exercises at home using their computer and a custom made headset which may help improve their symptoms.
