Platform Posturography adds value to a vestibular test battery, when combined with other tests of vestibular function.
During testing, the patient stands on a platform while wearing virtual reality glasses. The audiologist will change the visual scene in the glasses and the platform will move slightly during the evaluation.
Platform Posturography provides information about a patient?s functional abilities and the information obtained is useful for creating a specific therapy plan (Vestibular Rehabilitation) for a balance disordered patient.
Platform Posturography may also be used to determine whether a disorder is getting better or worse, or if there has been a response to treatment.
