EPLEY Omniax® System onsite
New technologies bring new hope for symptomatic relief for millions of dizziness and vertigo sufferers. Today, our Institute is one of just 15 practices worldwide—and the only one in Orange County—to diagnose and treat using the EPLEY Omniax multi-axial rotational chair.
Only FDA - approved device
Developed by neurotology pioneer Dr. John Epley, EPLEY Omniax is only system of its kind approved by the FDA for treating balance disorders and positional vertigo, including benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), the most common cause of dizziness. Many patients feel better after just one treatment session
Accurate results, fewer treatments
Adding EPLEY Omniax to our existing diagnostic testing enables Dr. Mango and his staff to differentiate between various related disorders, and to accurately assess and treat all ten vestibular (inner ear) structures. For Institute patients of all ages, these advanced new capabilities mean greater comfort, shorter and fewer treatments, and faster, more accurate test results.
Overcoming anatomical challenges
Deep inside the inner ear canals are tiny natural structures called otoconia (also crystals or particles) that, when properly positioned, help maintain balance. Vertigo and dizziness problems start when particles come loose and start floating within the canal.
The number of crystals and canals (multiplied by two for both ears), combined with the inherent anatomical complexities of the inner ear, can make diagnosis and treatment more difficult. The challenge is compounded by traditional, often awkward and uncomfortable, "table maneuvers" used to manually position patients' head for diagnosis and treatment. As the treatment table's replacement, the EPLEY Omniax multi-axial rotational chair effectively alleviates all these concerns-and many more.
How EPLEY Omniax improves care
Rather than laying down for manual maneuvers, patients treated with EPLEY Omniax sit comfortably in a soft padded chair. Electronically controlled multi-axial (360°) rotation allows Institute staff to move patient and chair into any position for diagnosis and treatment. This multiple repositioning capability helps the doctors of audiology identify issues that may go undetected with traditional table methods, which may in some cases reduce the need for surgery.
Simply put, the EPLEY Omniax chair elevates the level and quality of care by enabling Dr. Mango and his staff to more easily and accurately:
- Evaluate and treat all six inner ear canals
- Assess multiple canals in the same treatment session
- Identify which canal contains loose particles
- Use video to review previous sessions and monitor progress
