Falls among the elderly are not to be taken lightly; they represent a significant health concern that can lead to severe injuries, loss of independence, and even mortality. Our mission extends beyond treating conditions—we aim to prevent them. This is where the VAT ENGPlus System, a pivotal tool in vestibular testing, comes into play. 

Understanding the Urgency of Vestibular Testing

The statistics are compelling: a substantial percentage of the elderly experience dizziness and balance issues due to vestibular dysfunction, with the risk increasing with age. This isn’t just about occasional unsteadiness; vestibular disorders can drastically heighten the risk of falls. A significant number of senior falls are vestibular-related, and the need for precise, proactive diagnosis is undeniable.
