The rotational chair, one of about a dozen in the U.S. outside of the military, is used to test inner ear function and balance in a completely darkened chamber. Videostroboscopy permits detailed analysis of vocal fold function, and students assist with/participate in videofluroscopic swallowing assessment. All students gain experience with state of the art instrumentation in their respective professions.
