Vestibular Today Store
We are excited to offer our two main educational models to help clinicians, researchers, educators, students, and patients understand the inner ear and BPPV treatment. We sell our models through our partner Vestibular First.
The anatomically accurate 4-inch model is positioned on an elegant 3D printed base which allows you to easily remove it for hands-on education of clinicians, researchers, educators, and students. Each of the main parts of the anatomy are labeled: the cochlea, semicircular canals, and their respective cupulas. Perfect for clinics and educational settings where explaining the anatomy is required. Our model also comes with a removable ring to simulate the movement of otoconia during repositioning maneuvers for treating positional vertigo like BPPV.
The True-to-Size model of the left inner ear is perfect for clinicians, researchers, educators, and students who want to better understand the scale of the balance and hearing organs. Created using traditional lost-wax techniques, these models are cast in metal and are displayed in an attractive display box. Models are available in silver or gold plated 18k and rose gold and are the perfect balance of beauty and affordability.
History of the Functional Inner Ear Model
The original 3D printable model was created by NIH using Magnetic Resonance Imaging to map a patient's vestibular organ. This process created an exact replica of the organ which accurately depicted the correct canal angles in relation to each other and the utricle, as well as the changing canal diameters.
