The vestibular system is the dominant source of information for our perception of orientation and movement in space, and is often a contributor to dizziness and balance disorders. The National Institutes for Health reports that 90 million Americans go to health care providers because of vertigo, dizziness or balance problems. It is the second most common complaint in the doctor’s office, and will occur in 70% of the nation's population at sometime in their lives. Particularly with the expansion of our elderly population, the need for neuro-otologic diagnostics continues to grow.
NKI pioneered the development of vestibular and neuro-otologic test equipment; manufacturing the first computerized rotation chair in the late 1970’s. As patient care evolved, the rotational chair has become but one piece of the diagnostic test batteries incorporated in NKI’s family of I-Portal® clinical products.
The bottom line is the same for any practice – providing superior care to ensure positive patient outcomes. Generate growth and earn new referrals by pushing the standard of care in your market and positioning yourself as a leader in vestibular diagnostics.
Unlike many devices, I-Portal® products pay for themselves; providing direct revenue through 7 CPT codes. In addition, there is significant opportunity for ancillary revenue through patient examinations and referrals to other practice areas.
NKI systems are found in hospitals, trauma centers, private clinics, DOD and VA facilities and are used by audiologists, ENT’s, neuro-otologists, neuro-ophthalmologists, and neurologists all over the world.
