The Vestibular Autorotation Test (VAT) is an important test for the senior citizens who complain of falling. The incidence of fall and fall related injuries among the senior citizens is increasing and contrary to the common perception, only 9% of the patients were falling because of balance problem. In fact, a large section of the patients in this category suffer from vestibular dysfunction which can be easily diagnosed from VAT and relevant remedial advice/medication can be prescribed. The VAT test, being non-invasive and painless, can be completed in office by the practitioner within 20 minutes.
In this test, the patient is asked to simply wear a lightweight head strap that connects to five electrodes. These electrodes connect at various points around the eyes and forehead. At the sound of a computer-generated tone, the patient moves their head left and right, up and down in a series of simple tests. Immediately upon completion, a report is printed with graphing to easily show the Primary Care Physician where the patient is deficient. In most cases, the patient is instructed on some simple eye exercises they can do at home. Four weeks later the patient is re-tested to track improvement.
According to Company’s spokesperson Michael Berg, “The VAT results are important in diagnosing the fall related problems of the aged. The timely test helps the patient in early recovery and independence. The test is also reimbursable by all insurance companies and can open a revenue stream for the physician.”
