Vestibular Testing - VORTEQ and DVA-Test
Company : Micromedical Technologies Inc
UMDC Code : 107409
VORTEQ is designed to provide information about the Vestibular Ocular Reflex (VOR) in patients with dizziness or balance problems. VORTEQ offers researchers and clinicians a simple and inexpensive method to evaluate VOR gain, phase and symmetry. The Dynamic Visual Acuity (DVA) Test measures visual acuity during head motion. The DVA-Test provides valuable information about the Visual Vestibular Ocular Reflex (VVOR) in well subjects (pilots, athletes) in addition to patients with vestibular deficits.
VORTEQ utilizes an angular velocity sensor mounted directly to the VisualEyes FireWire Binocular Goggles. With the VisualEyes Monocular Goggles, the angular velocity sensor is attached to the back of the goggles headband for VORTEQ testing and to the front of a separate headband for DVA testing. This solid state sensor produces an electronic waveform that is proportional to head angular velocity (deg/sec).
