Vesticon

Vesticon is a company that specializes in neuro-vestibular diagnosis and treatment of vertigo. Dr. John Eply created a maneuver that, with accurately knowing the position of errant particles in the semi-circular canals, uses positioning and gravity to move the errant particles into a safe zone, the ultricle, and thereby alleviating one of the causes of vertigo. The system uses stimulus and resulting autonomic eye movement to support positioning analysis, and leads the physician thru full-body movement to move these particles. STG supported feature enhancement of the Omniax large scale, multi-axial patient positioning system and developed the hardware and software for the Tulio device, to use micro pressure air bursts on the ear-drum to support diagnosis of particle location in the vestibular system.
