Dear Tom,


Saw this online just today.  I have been considering carrying the VAT/ENG as
a distributor but have not been able to obtain much information on the
clinical validity of this test.  In 1996 you were in the process of such as
study at the U of Michigan, have you made any conclusions?


 


Thanks for your time,

The VAT (from Lifetech/Western Systems) and the Vortex (from MicroMedical) 
have been marketed as lost-cost replacements for traditonal "whole body 
rotation" rotary chair systems. Unfortunately, there have been no studies to

date which directly compare auto-head rotation devices to rotary chair in
the 
same population. We are in the process of such a study at U of Michigan.
Until 
we finish the study, we are not using VAT data clinically.
