Course: Objectifying the functional assessment of the dizzy patient

1 - 2 hours
30 September 2022


This course will be focused on functional assessments, and how such testing sits within the dizzy patient pathway, with a specific focus on computerized, objective gaze stabilization testing. You will learn in detail how functional assessments of imbalance and the VOR can be improved by being computerized and therefore objective and repeatable. Particular focus will be paid to Dynamic Visual Acuity (DVA) tests and Gaze Stabilization Tests (GST). You will also gain insights in how to use these assessment results to create treatment and rehabilitation plans. This course will also cover a case study of a young man with VOR deficit and concussion after a head injury.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe how functional assessments fit into vestibular clinics
  • Explain how to perform computerized, objective Gaze Stabilization Testing
  • Analyze the results of computerized Gaze Stabilization Testing
