Vertigo is a form of dizziness which produces a sensation of movement where there is none. When experiencing vertigo, people may feel off-balance like they are spinning and the world around them is moving. It is typically caused by a disorder in your inner ear.
Chronic vertigo patients can experience severe attacks that can last hours or even days. Vertigo has a large impact on millions of Americans daily lives and can prevent people from experiencing a normal life.

The First Medical Wearable for Vertigo
The vestibular system and the eyes control balance and your sense of motion. Disagreement between the two can cause vertigo and issues with balance. That’s where Otolith comes in. Otolith’s non-invasive Vestibular System Masking (nVSM) technology is designed to immediately alleviate vertigo symptoms by reducing this spatial disagreement.
An estimated 5 million Americans have chronic difficulties relating to vertigo. We are here to help a widespread issue with limited solutions.
A Treatment for Multiple Conditions
Otolith Labs’ non-invasive technology is being evaluated for the acute treatment of vestibulogenic vertigo. The headworn device applies localized mechanical stimulation to the vestibular system through calibrated vibrations. It is primarily intended for use by chronic vertigo patients, for whom there are very limited treatments.
Vestibulogenic Vertigo is a symptom of conditions including:
- Benign Positional Paroxysmal Vertigo (BPPV)
- Vestibular Neuritis
- Meniere’s Disease
- Vestibular Migraine & Migraine Associated Vertigo
- Persistent Postural Perceptual Dizziness (PPPD)
Otolith Labs has pioneered nVSM technology. Our core technology uses a patented transducer to send consistent and noninformative stimuli to the vestibular system which may mitigate the sensation of vertigo and motion related nausea.
Participants in clinical studies have reported a decrease in their vertigo symptoms within five minutes of use. The technology is noninvasive and silent. It is a reliable and durable 5th-generation model with a clear route to FDA approval through the De Novo process.
Otolith technology is designed to work instantaneously and participants in studies have reported immediate relief.
Our patented device will be the first medical wearable treatment for vertigo.
Otolith Labs’ non-invasive technology is a simple headworn device requiring no surgery or complex fitting.
A Vertigo Patient’s Experience
"My Vertigo Immediately Improved with Otolith"
Ken Stout, a labyrinthitis patient and driving instructor for 35 years, has constant vertigo and could no longer drive or work. In the first month from onset, he spent six days in three hospitals even opting to endure steroid injections through the eardrum. Nothing seemed to help, until he tried the Otolith Technology which provided instant relief.
“It gave me hope for the first time in months.”
Upcoming At-home Vertigo Study
In 2022 Otolith Labs will begin enrollment for an at-home study of a possible treatment of vertigo. Enrollment will be limited and there will be no cost to you. All information will be kept confidential and we will not attempt to sell you anything.
Otolith Labs is developing a new head-worn wearable device for the treatment of vertigo. The device is safe and simple to use.
