Abstract

Basically laboratory vestibular function testing use the vestibular ocular reflex and vestibular spinal reflex like as bedside examination or outpatients' evaluation. Such vestibular laboratory testing can aid diagnosis and can be used to document an abnormality suspected at bedside evaluation. The ability to perform serial vestibular evaluations allows an assessment over time of patients who are undergoing treatment for dizziness or treatment with potentially ototoxic medication. Generally speaking, It includes spontaneous nystagmus, some kinds of evoked nystagmus, ocular eye movement testing, Caloric's testing, rotational chair testing, vestibular evoked myogenic potential, subjective visual vertical, posturography and so on. Those testing have been developed with biomedical engineering based on the proven scientific facts together.
