Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) is a major cause of dizziness that often goes undetected and untreated. Research has shown that in 86% of affected individuals, BPPV led to medical consultation, interruption of daily activities or sick leave. In total, only 8% of affected participants received effective treatment. BPPV is the most common vestibular disorder which leads to significant morbidity, extensive medical costs and psychosocial impact; not to mention reduced feeling of confidence and independence.
BPPV is the most common vestibular disorder. The false feeling of rotational movements is triggered by a mechanical issue in the inner ear. Calcium carbonate crystals (otoconia) become dislodged from the gel in the utricle and migrate to one or more of the three fluid filled semicircular canals.
