New Methods of Vestibular Evaluation and Rehabilitation

Associate Professor of Otolaryngology, University of Rochester

Abstract:

The standard treatment for unilateral vestibular hypofunction (UVH) is vestibular physical therapy (VPT). There is a large variation in VPT results depending on type of therapy, adherence, and the appropriateness for the patient's level of function. A novel automated vestibular rehabilitation (AVR) program was developed and evaluated in UVH patients. This AVR method has advantages over traditional VR in terms of cost and customization for patient ability and obtained a major improvement in symptoms.
