The BalanceBelt
for medical professionals

Are you looking for better ways to treat patients diagnosed with Bilateral Vestibular Loss or Hypofunction (BVL / BVH)?

The BalanceBelt is a unique, patented belt that helps BVL and BVH patients by providing haptic feedback on body position and balance.

A new, innovative treatment for patients with
Bilateral Vestibular Hypofunction or Loss (BVL / BVH)

Bilateral Vestibular Loss (BVL) is a complete loss of vestibular function in both inner ears. Partial damage to both inner ears is called Bilateral Vestibular Hypofunction (BVH). Patients typically struggle to maintain balance, especially when walking in the dark or on uneven surfaces. They also experience difficulties seeing clearly during head movements.

How the BalanceBelt works

The BalanceBelt contains several tiny vibration motors (tactors), advanced software algorithms and an accelerometer. The belt senses the direction the wearer is leaning toward and provides vibrational feedback to alert the wearer about their body position.

The proprioception of the body (sense of self-movement and body position) interprets the feedback subconsciously, allowing the wearer to adjust their posture.
