Rotary Chair – half day (4 hours)
Rotary Chair testing has been gaining in popularity, as its ease, simplicity and well-tolerated and relatively short time needed has great clinical appeal. Since rotation is a true physiologic stimulus, it provides greater and more robust information regarding integrity the patient’s peripheral vestibular mechanisms and the central pathways of the Vestibular-Ocular Reflex pathways (VOR). It is also ideal when testing children as young as two years of age, as well as for any patients claiming disability or in litigation, where a more objective assessment protocol is desirable. Perhaps more importantly, the literature suggests that when bi-directional results are robust and symmetrical there may be no need for caloric testing.

Learning Objectives:
At the conclusion of the Rotary Chair module, students will be able to…

1. Describe the physiological response of the VOR during rotary chair testing.
2. Explain gain, phase and pre-post rotary responses and how they are used in analysis and interpretation.
3. Demonstrate competency administrating protocols.
4. Interpret the test results from each subtest and correlate all finding into a coherent report.
