We’ve been listening to you We have heard that many of you would like a binocular version of Vesticam, and we’ve been working hard to make this possible. Binocular Vesticam units will be available in March 2020!!
User friendly and ready to go
Vesticam and its supplied, compatible recorder comes with an easy to use, pre-installed app fully set up, and does not require extensive IT knowledge or technical training.
We currently have 3 in use in the hospital and they are very intuitive / user friendly for new Physio’s to learn and use. They can just pick it up, switch it on and off they go. I can’t remember the days before Vesticam!

Fully portable. Does NOT require a special examination room set up
We don’t always have the space for a dedicated examination room. Vesticam and its compatible recording device (android phone) for viewing and storing images is completely portable.
It can be shared between clinicians, taken into different treatment areas, and be used with ease during home visits.
The goggles and recording device come in a safe, compact (22 X 18 X 7 cm) carry case, for light and easy transport.
Your patient can move around easily
Vesticam’s fully portable recording device can easily be slipped into a lanyard and placed around your patient’s neck, or clipped to their arm or trunk if preferred. The entire Vesticam unit can then be kept in place while your patient changes position, moves from chair to treatment area, or even walks or jogs during assessments. Unlike other IR goggles attached to a laptop, Vesticam is suitable as a recording device for Emory modified vestibular chair testing.
The camera’s 90cm cable can be easily extended with a light weight, 1.5m high speed extension lead. This means you can place your recording device (phone) on a nearby table OR connect to your PC if you wish. Extension lead and USB adapters are included with all units.
Stay focused on your patient
It’s important to stay focused on our patients, especially if they are nauseous or anxious. With Vesticam there is no need to look away to your desk during testing. The mobile device can be lightly attached to your patient using the supplied lanyard and the real time image is right there with them.
You have the best product for vestibular PTs!

Fits a large range of face shapes and sizes
Vesticam is mounted on a high quality, tried and tested, versatile swimming goggle. It is flexible enough to fit most face shapes and sizes, from small children through to older adults. Vesticam’s innovative and patented 5 way adjustment system allows the goggles to be effortlessly fitted through a 22 mm interpupiliary range.
Light and comfortable for patients
Unlike other IR goggles Vesticam won’t significantly alter cervical proprioceptive input, or make your patients feel even more dizzy or out of balance!
The Vesticam goggles unit sits close to the face and weighs only 110g…..about the same as a small light straw hat.
Your patient can breath normally through their nose, with minimal pressure to their face.
Quick, simple, and safe adjust with the goggles still in place on your patient
Adjusting the camera or swapping eyes takes seconds. If you cannot see your patient’s eye easily , simply slide the cylinder up, lift it off, and realign the camera cylinder so that the preferred eye is fully visible on the screen. The monocular camera can be switched to either side in a few seconds. All with the goggles still in place.
The simple camera joystick mechanism provides even more range and is also used to focus the image. The camera has an end stop and cannot be pushed into your patient’s eye.
Quick and easy to clean
Follow your normal patient hygiene pathways when applying the goggles. The simple goggles face plate is easily cleaned between patients with effective anti-microbial wipes.
Now it’s possible
to use clinical tests
that are more sensitive, specific and have a low vulnerability to bias
Normal nystagmus post chair rotation in Emory Clinical Vestibular Chair testing
Up-beating and left rotational fatiguing nystagmus with left Hallpike Dix test
Positive Vertical Head Shake test
Congenital, non-fatiguing nystagmus in child
Very easy to use, good quality video.

For tests with or without fixation
With its simple, separate, clip on/off eye patch, Vesticam can record eye movement with or without fixation. This means it can be used for observation/recording of smooth pursuit and saccades, as well as many tests requiring no fixation.
As an optional extra, you can now purchase Vesticam with an internal fixation light. This provides fixation at the flick of a switch!
What tests can I use Vesticam for?
- Saccade and smooth pursuit observation. Vesticam allows for fixation (simply take off the eye patch)
- Gaze evoked nystagmus testing with and without fixation.
- Head Impulse Test (note: eye movement and audio are recorded without trace, can be reviewed at 1/2 speed)
- Head Shake Test with fixation denied
- Hallpike Dix and Horizontal roll (for BPPV)
- Emory Clinical Vestibular Chair Testing (particularly relevant for children)
- Observation of eye movement during Valsalva and bedside Tullios and increased Tragal pressure (with or without fixation)
- Bow and Lean test for horizontal canal BPPV
- Observation of eye movement with Head in Prone
- Recording of nystagmus during acute episodes of Meniere’s Disease or vestibular migraine
- Mastoid vibration testing
- modified/ bedside Suppression Head Impulse Testing
We want to support you to provide safe and effective treatment and management for your patients. For this reason we recommend that only trained clinicians use any IR video goggles. Interested in further training?
Review (at normal or half speed), rename, send or delete video files
As well as observing real time, you can replay patient eye movement videos as many times as you want, dragging the time line to the most relevant moments. The videos can even be replayed at half speed if necessary.
It makes a difference when patients can see their eye movement videos. They understand more easily and know the importance of follow up. They are more committed to and compliant with their home exercises. It’s easy to show your patients their eye movement videos straight away, on the Vesticam compatible android phone with dedicated Vesticam app.
Videos are automatically labelled by date and time but can be renamed at any time on the Vesticam app. Videos can be sent via the app or using other methods (see the user manual on the support page) according to your usual medical record pathways.
If you don’t want to store or send a patient video, you can simply delete it straight off your portable device.
Use your normal workflow and procedures
Vesticam records eye movement videos using the dedicated app on your compatible recording device (supplied android phone). The dedicated android phone will hold over 100 patient videos.
You can also record directly onto your PC or MAC laptop if you prefer.
We recommend that you regularly upload and save your patient videos to a separate storage device (hard drive) or to your electronic medical records using your usual EMR pathways (see the user manual on the support page).

Vesticam Compatible Recorder (Android Device)
For best security and ease of use, we prefer that you use our supplied recording device: an android mobile phone. The phones we choose have proven durability, audio and image quality, rapid charging capacity, and an easy finger print reader option to unlock.
The dedicated Vesticam app is already installed and ready to use.
There is no SIM card in this phone.
- We estimate that our 32GB Vesticam Compatible Recorder (with 20GB of available space) has the capacity for over 100 video recordings!
- Recorded in MP4 format at 26-28 frames per second, the video is fast enough to capture saccadic movements of the eye
Super easy, portable and user friendly device. I think it is a great affordable option for therapists working in vestibular rehab.
