Abstract

The conservative therapy of long-lasting vestibular disorders has been changed over the last few years by the introduction of neuro(bio-)feedback procedures. A technical neurofeedback system applies an additional (acoustic, galvanic, vibrotactile) stimulus to the patient while performing vestibular exercises. This stimulus is dependent on the extent of postural deviation of the patient from a normal (ideal) position in space. The neurofeedback system is body worn and continuously registers any postural deviation from the normal position so that it can apply suitable stimuli to the patient. This new way of rehabilitating patients with vertigo seems to be a promising addition in the therapy of long-lasting, complex vestibular disorders as recent studies have demonstrated.
