The Falls and Balance Program at Mount Carmel will run a battery of tests to ensure we get to the bottom of your falling or balance issues. Some of the tests we provide include:
A series of subtests that examine the integrity of the vestibular and central nervous systems by determining the presence of central nervous system dysfunction, positional vertigo, and vestibular hypofunction.
A computerized test that uses a gently rotating swivel chair to assess vestibular balance function and determine the presence of bilateral vestibular weakness.
A vestibulo-ocular reflex test that uses quick head movements, goggles and infra-red cameras to measure vestibular symmetry.
A functional evaluation of the ability to maintain balance in a variety of controlled conditions.
Ours is one of the only programs in central Ohio with the capability to perform Rotary Chair/VNG testing with Dynamic Posturography, allowing us to provide you with the most precise and comprehensive assessment of your balance and fall risk.
