about

This volume opens a new frontier for clinical specialists dealing with vertigo sufferers. As our populations are constantly growing older, we have to deal more and more with degenerative neurosensorial disor­ ders of elderly persons not only from the investigative, but also from the innovative therapeutic point of view. This book's theme of vertigo and dizziness rehabilitation has been chosen in the sense of applied neurootometry and conservative neu­ roototherapy. The authors describe a new way of utilizing objective and quantitative neurosensorial equilibrium function measurements for special reprogramming and retraining purposes. In the field of diagnosis they place functional investigation of the equilibrium sys­ tem alongside the other classical techniques which mostly work through inspection and imaging. Consequently, the MCS method of treatment (mechanics, cybernetics, synergetics) has to take into ac­ count the basic knowledge on information transfer from the inner ear hair cells to the central nervous system in the regulating centers of the brainstem.

From Our Editors

Rehabilitation of Vertigo and Dizziness presents a new approach to the diagnosis and rehabilitative treatment of vertigo and dizziness based on an innovative model of the vestibular system. It includes a detailed introduction to the MCS method, and a treatment program that involves mechanic, cybernetic, and synergetic aspects. Additionally, it provides a brief outline of the modern neurophysiological concepts behind the methodology.
