This is impressive but how does differ from the SYNAPSYS VHIT and how much more helpful is it. What flaws of the SYNAPSYS machine can be overcome by this ?? Please elaborate as I am asked this question in some forums by ENT doctors. I have the SYNAPSYS system a but would like to go in for this too
The test re-test reliability is very good for the horizontal canal tests using the SYNAPSYS system of VHIT but the testing of the vertical canals -anterior and posterior needs a bit more of perfection, no doubt I have had problems with these canals and test re-test does not always tally for anterior and posterior canals. I was blaming my technique for it. Head translation is probably the offending culprit (and probably not my technique) during the vertical canal tests.
I have ordered the OTOMETRICS head impulse system (but am yet to get it)also and hope to have better luck with the vertical canals
