Stimulators, Caloric, Vestibular Function

Definition : Caloric stimulators that apply a stream of air or water to the ear canal. Vestibular function stimulators consist of an irrigation system that includes a pump, valves, heaters, and regulators to control the rate of flow and temperature of the fluid. The stimulation of the semicircular canal produces involuntary eye movements, which are measured using a nystagmograph. These stimulators are used for vestibular function testing in assessing the patient's balance system.
