All Star Sales Introduces DizzyFIX a New Treatment for Vertigo and Dizziness
Date:1/29/2008

CALGARY, Canada, Jan. 29 /PRNewswire/ - There is new hope for vertigo and dizziness patients. Using a new non-invasive device called DizzyFIX, patients with vertigo can now treat themselves. Studies at the University of Western Ontario show that this visual device helps treat the most common type of peripheral dizziness in the majority of patients.

DizzyFIX has received a number of medical research awards and carries the CE mark. Clearwater Clinical of Calgary, Alberta developed the patent-pending product.

Symptoms of vertigo and dizziness are now becoming extremely common in the baby boom generation, and can easily go undiagnosed. The most common cause of dizziness related to the ear is called Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV). It is characterized by a short-lived, positional, sudden-onset spinning sensation, which is very disturbing to most people. This condition affects roughly 10% of the population over 60.

"BPPV is brought on by certain head positions. Patients can experience it several times a day, and often when they wake from sleep and roll over," says ear, nose and throat specialist Dr. Matthew Bromwich, of the DizzyFIX team. "Today, we know that BPPV is caused by free-floating calcium particles in the inner ear that cause symptoms of vertigo during head motion."

In 1992, physicians discovered that a specific series of rolling head movements can move these loose particles out of symptomatic areas and into safe areas, essentially curing BPPV. Until now, this procedure has generally required a clinical visit to a specialist physician. "The DizzyFIX device enables patients to treat their own symptoms very effectively," Bromwich explains. "The success rates we've seen in clinical studies are similar to those of treatment by an ear, nose and throat specialist. It's effective, noninvasive and safe."
