The purpose of this clinical trial is to compare traditional measures of vestibular rehabilitation VPT against a novel device IVE developed by the PI Schubert that has been shown to improve vestibulo-ocular reflex VOR function. We will examine critical dosing related questions in delivering vestibular rehabilitation for active duty service members with mild traumatic brain injury and civilians with vestibular hypofunction - both of which will be treated for rehabilitation given symptoms related to having a vestibular disorder. To date, we have secured local IRB approval Johns Hopkins and are awaiting final HRPO approval to begin data collection. We have secured FDA classification as a non-significant risk study, have developed the procedures manual, and have all necessary equipment to begin.
