Dizziness and Inner Ear Disorders – Invitation to participate in a Vestibular research study.

On 09, Oct 2017 | In News | By Jerusha Shulberg

What happens to our mental capabilities and our composure when we become dizzy or disorientated?

Cubex Clinical Specialist Physiotherapist, Mr Jeremy Corcoran is currently involved in a study that explores if and how some of our mental capabilities (particularly our spatial reasoning abilities) and our composure (the balance of our autonomic nervous system) are affected by dizziness caused by mismatching visual and vestibular signals. Mr Corcoran has already completed two large studies which have looked into this. For scientific robustness, he is completing another study in this area to see if he can replicate his previous results once again.

If you are interested, and have not previously suffered with dizziness, we would like to invite you to take part in the study. We will measure your problem-solving capabilities and your fight-or-flight response while you are spun around in a motorised chair built by the Royal Air Force.

Before you decide, we would like you to understand why the research is being done and what it would involve for you. The study has been fully approved by the University of Westminster. Please take your time to read the following information carefully and discuss it with friends, family and your GP if you wish. We would be happy to go through the information sheet with you and answer any questions you have. Ask us if there is anything that is not clear.

To celebrate joining the Cubex Team, Rebecca and Saima are putting their best foot forward and completing a 10 mile walk in support of Action On Hearing loss this Saturday October 15th.

Action on Hearing Loss (RNID) is the largest charity representing the 11 million people confronting hearing loss in the UK since 1911. Supporting this charity means more help for people affected by hearing loss and tinnitus and more research into its causes and treatment. So please show your support and donate via Saima’s and Rebecca’s JustGiving profile page.

Thank you for for your support!

Video: hearing aids help to keep your brain fit

On 29, Jun 2016 | In News | By Jerusha Shulberg

The Eriksholm Research Centre have shared this short but interesting video featuring Professor Hélène Amieva, a leading researcher in the Neuropsychology and Epidemiology of Aging at the University of Bordeaux, France, who discusses her 25 year study that shows that hearing aids reduce the risk of cognitive decline in older adults. It is well documented that untreated hearing conditions can lead to an increase in anxiety, stress, depression, poorer communication and eventual isolation. Hearing aids used as part of a individualised treatment plan can help to manage the negative effects of hearing loss and reduce accelerated cognitive decline!
