Vestibular dysfunction is associated with thedevelopmental delay of motor and attention skills. Integrity ofthe vestibular and visual systems manifest in rapid side to sideeye movement called nystagmus. This may be evoked byphysical rotation or caloric stimulation to the ear drums. Theapproach in this technological advance explores whethercontrolled rotation of the environment can induce thenystagmus in healthy adult subjects. This provides a portablesolution which utilizes technology associated with virtualreality. VR allows a level of control not possible in the 'real'world and allows the therapist a degree of control over theenvironment that is not normally possible. Initial testingillustrates that nystagmus is apparent in the electro-ocularrecording during stimulation, but so far, does not persistbeyond the stimulation period.
