BrainPort Balance Device

hey y'all,
i wanted to let you know what amazing results i am having with the BrainPort Balance Device. Is anyone else using one? I would love to connect with others!

I have bilateral vestibular hypofunction (damage to both my inner ears) and have been dizzy for 12 years. It is the coolest thing.

It is the coolest thing. It is a medical device that teaches your tongue to become your balance organ!




I haven't heard of this, but I'd like to learn more. I am thinking of talking to my neuropsychiatrist about my dizzyness troubles b/c its affecting my balance and causing me to fall down a lot now. I would love not to fall down as much as I do! I have a serere brain injury from a head-on car vs. oil tanker crash and the dizzyness comes and goes but lately it's been getting worse!

Hi Beecute,

I've checked the site you provided. My situation is much less severe, thank goodness, than what is on the home page. I feel dizzy and sometimes nauseated when the air pressure changes; can't walk quickly or bend over w/out feeling like I might pass out.

I'm wondering whether this device would help me. I can stand and walk straight on a line; just don't do as well with my Wii balance exercises when I'm feeling so dizzy.

I'd love to be part of any discussion about this, and learn more! I'd also love to feel normal all the time!! I've had to stop participating in some of my favorite activities because I don't know how I'll be feeling. Any help would be SO appreciated!!! Thanks.

    I have cancer

    I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!

    Support from family

    It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
