Barany Test

The Barany test detects illnesses of the semi-circular canals which are interconnected tubes in the inner ear. It was devised by Robert Barany, a Hungarian physiologist. The assessment requires the individual to sit on a rotation chair, also known as the Barany Chair, which is rotated for approximately 10 seconds with 10 revolutions. Pathology is then suspected if there is a deviancy regarding the usual apparent rolling of the eyes (nystagmus) and vertigo.
