Visually Evoked Potentials (VEPs) are electrical potentials elicited from brief visual stimuli and recorded from the visual cortex with surface electrodes. VEPs are an objective, reliable, and non-invasive method for evaluation of the functional integrity of the retina and early afferent visual pathways. The purpose of this study is to compare the VEPs generated from a standard clinical evoked potential system to those obtained from the Vivonics portable VEP system.
The specific aim of this work is to optimize consumer and non-physician detection of ear disease.
This pilot study is focused on what assistance an external prosthetic device, the BalanceBelt™ can provide in the:
- assessment and
- treatment for patients with Chronic Subjective Dizziness (CSD).
The BalanceBelt has sensitive detectors for movement in the anterior/posterior and medial/lateral planes and provides the person wearing the device vibro-tactile feedback as to the persons orientation with respect to gravity. The device is a full self contained device that is comfortably worn around the waist over a light weight shirt. The device is non-FDA approved and is in its final stages of beta testing. Patients with CSD do not have permanent vestibular deficits, but underutilize vestibular signals because they develop visual or somatosensory dependence. The investigators expect the BalanceBeltTM to reset this error by providing patients with reliable motion stimuli.
Do adults and older children (greater than 7 years of age) with unilateral or assymetric hearing loss benefit from cochlear implantation on the worst hearing side.
This is not a funded study. All costs are billed through insurance for reimbursement. There is an insurance approval process that we move through after a participant has been evaluated at the Mayo Clinic and found to be a candidate for cochlear implantation.
