EQUIPMENT AVAILABLE:

Safety Overhead Supports and Single Point Fixation Points (SOS): These are rails secured in the ceiling and patients are secured in harnesses so that the therapists can challenge the patients vestibular, visual and somatosensory systems with the necessary exercises needed to lower their fall risk while not putting the patients themselves at any risk of falling.

Infrared Video Oculography (IVOG goggles): This technology allows visualization of the patient's eyes to precisely evaluate their vestibular and visual systems to identify dysfunction. The IVOG goggles allow the therapist to determine if central or peripheral weakness is as present in conditions such as BPPV, vestibular neuritis, and labyrinthitis.

Computerized Dynamic Posturography (CDP): This state-of-art equipment is used to objectively measure and help your health care team identify the cause of your balance or dizziness problem. CDP is like an MRI of the balance system. It allows the therapist to evaluate all 3 components of your balance: the Somatosensory System, The Visual System and The Vestibular System. After this thorough evaluation, the correct specific treatment program can be provided to lower your fall risk, treat your balance difficulties or manage your concussion.
