Beyond Balance: New Data, Applications, and Potential for Vestibular Stimulation


Studies crossing multiple disciplines continue to supplement our knowledge and understanding of the vestibular system. Once believed to be associated only with balance, recent scientific studies demonstrate that the vestibular system and the effects of vestibular stimulation have an impact on multiple systems throughout the human body. 

As new research continues to uncover the widespread benefits of vestibular stimulation, new applications are being identified.

 

At left, , Dr. Kim Fox, of AVORA Health Centers in Asheville, NC has developed a new strategy for applying vestibular stimulation to patients with MdDS using a multi-axis rotating chair, the GyroStim.

The successful outcomes from her work have gained attention around the world. 


A case study by Dr. Fox was  featured in the Vestibular Disorders Association (VEDA) newsletter, click here to view.
