The re-positioning chair Rotundum R1 is designed for research and therapeutic treatment of patients with Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV).
It is used to perform the re-positioning manoeuvres to relocate the dislodged calcium crystals (otoconia or otoliths) in the inner ear of the patient.
The re-positioning chair can be used in combination with suitable systems for the diagnostic and therapeutic treatment.
Rotundum R1 is the result of a close collaboration between the University Hospital of Zürich, the Swiss Concussion Center, and the Swiss Engineering
