Revolutionize Vestibular Testing: New Ways to Assess Patients with Central Disorders

The patient journey for vestibular assessment can be a lengthy process. A 2011 survey by the Vestibular Disorders Association (VEDA) states that, on average, patients consult four to five doctors before receiving a diagnosis. Furthermore, it takes an average of three to five years for a person with a vestibular disorder to receive a diagnosis (VEDA, 2011). By applying new testing techniques, clinicians can scale down their workflow and obtain an accurate diagnosis in less time.
