Supplementary video of case report paper "Curing a 96 year old patient afflicted with benign paroxysmal positional vertigo on a motorized turntable" published in the open access journal Clinical Interventions in Aging by authors Bockisch CJ, Straumann D, Weber KP.
Background: Dizziness in the elderly is a serious health concern due to the increased morbidity caused by falling. The most common cause of dizziness in the elderly, benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), is frequently undiagnosed, and bedside treatment of these patients can be difficult due to neck and back stiffness, which makes repeated and accurate repositioning maneuvers difficult.
