Video mashup on Foster’s maneuver for BPPV

Posted on

Video mashup on Foster’s maneuver for BPPV: http://ow.ly/Fw11V – as an example of how the 3 arms of the CURIOS project can work together, we took the YouTube example posted to CURIOS the other day and adapted it.

Carol Foster has modified the traditional head maneuvers seen in Epley’s and other techniques and made it into something that is easier for patients to self-administer.

We used an early version of our video mashup technique to extract the most pertinent segment from her video, for easy reference. This page is part of a larger virtual patient case about dizzyness, which you can use for teaching about dizziness and vertigo.
