ICS Impulse has many advantages when using it with the pediatric population. The goggles are small and only 60 grams making them more adaptable to smaller head sizes. ICS Impulse now provides a variety of functionality with these small portable goggles. Perform not only video head impulse testing but also positional and oculomotor tests or use them as a traditional video frenzel. Physicians from Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School published an article concluding, “VHIT is a valuable tool in diagnosing peripheral vestibular loss in the pediatric population.

It is also effectively detects vertical canal dysfunction in this population, which makes it the first clinically available test to do so. The test is well-tolerated in children.”
