Recent advances in the area of balance function testing have left clinicians with a wide variety of diagnostic tests that provide insights into the function of the balance system. Laboratory tests used to evaluate the balance system include electronystagmography, rotational chair, and dynamic posturography. This article summarizes the currently available balance function testing protocols. A cost-effective and rational protocol for the application of these tests is provided.
