Virtual reality (VR) powered vestibular rehabilitation for peripheral vestibular disorders

Rehabilitate Vestibular Disorders.  Restore Life.

Treatment for vestibular disorders usually involves symptomatic medication, vestibular rehabilitation and surgeries. Vestibular rehabilitation therapies (VRT) is one of the most popular options due to its non-invasive nature. However, conventional VRT exercises are perceived to be difficult to perform, boring, lacks challenges and adaptive training content, is dependent on patient's active efforts and interest and lacks tools to measure and analyse results and track progress. Moreover, conventional VRT equipment is expensive and requires large spaces.

Most of the conventional VRT exercises can now be performed using virtual reality (VR) based applications in an
interactive, immersive and fun filled manner. Virtual reality technology can provide a wide range of sensory
stimuli to generate conflicts of varying degrees of complexity in a safe environment. The results of VR based
vestibular rehabilitation can be accurately measured and progress can be monitored.

BalanceEye VRT is a virtual reality based vestibular rehabilitation platform to treat peripheral vestibular
disorders and balance disorders. The solution provides immersive, real life situations that motivates patients to
participate in the rehabilitation exercises. The device allows patients to gradually progress through different
levels whilst allowing clinicians to accurately measure progress through the levels. Many of the tests involve
interactive real-life situations with ample gamification. The entire module can be integrated with BalanceEye
diagnostic platform, patient module and history module.


Application areas

BalanceEye VRT modules are designed to:

  • Treat symptoms of dizziness that are produced 
    because of self-motion and/or visual stimuli caused 
    in environments like super markets, driving through 
    traffic, etc. The goal of the tests is to reduce dizziness 
    through repeated exposure to environment / stimuli.

  • Improve control of eye movements so vision can be 
    clear during head movement.

  • Improve steadiness so that daily activities for selfcare, work and leisure can be performed successfully.

Application areas include:

  • Persistent postural perceptual dizziness (PPPD).

  • Visual vertigo.

  • Cervicogenic vertigo.

  • Vestibular asymmetry.

  • BPPV rehabilitation.

  • Phobias like seas sickness, motion sickness, fear 
    of heights etc.

  • Decompensated unilateral labyrinth weakness.
