Computerised Platform based Vestibular Rehabilitation Program

It is no secret that the existing parameters set out for vestibular rehabilitation mostly involve a patient information leaflet detailing the Cawthorne Cooksey (Nonspecific) Exercises, and compliance and technique remain issues that need to be resolved to achieve any perceived or documented benefit.

Computerised Platform Based VRT is different as the patient’s progress can be quantified, the exercises are fun to perform and Virtual Biofeedback is incredibly motivating to the patient who works to achieve good equilibrium.

By improving overall Balance function and promoting mechanisms of central adaptation and compensation, Computer Aided Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy aims to Augment balance, Minimize falls, Decrease subjective sensations of dizziness, Improve stability during locomotion, Reduce over-dependency on visual and somato-sensory inputs, Improve neuromuscular coordination and Decrease anxiety and somatization due to vestibular disorientation

CPVRT Program can help with a variety of vestibular ailments including


· U/L and B/L vestibular hypo-function associated with

o Ménière’s disease

o Labyrinthitis

o Vestibular neuritis

o Individuals with long-term unresolved inner ear disorders who have undergone a period of medical management with little or no success may benefit.

Using this program VRT can also help people with an acute or abrupt loss of vestibular function following surgery for vestibular problems.

Through this mailer, I invite you to our centre and experience the Principles of Modern Day Balance Rehabilitation being laid out in Vestibular Medicine. I would also put a humble request for you to kindly refer patients that might benefit from the Vestibular Rehabilitation Program.
