During RVT, or rotary chair testing, the patient sits in the dark for a short period of time, talking to the audiologist, while the chair slowly swivels from side to side at different speeds. Video goggles are worn to record eye movements, which are driven by the inner ear balance organs when the head is moving from side to side.

These movements are driven by your balance organs whenever your head is moving.

The RVT system greatly increases your provider’s ability to detect subtle vestibular abnormalities not identified by other test modalities.
