Abstract

The effect of a controlled program of rotatory vestibular stimulation on the incidence of seizures in 14 severely developmentally delayed non-ambulatory children was investigated. Data analysis revealed no significant difference in the incidence of seizure activity between the treatment and control group. An additional analysis comparing the mean number of seizures during the treatment period with a comparable period prior to the initiation of treatment revealed no significant change in seizure incidence for the treatment group. The role of vestibular stimulation procedure as a sensory stimulation procedure and its relationship to seizure incidence is discussed. The need for further research in this area is emphasized.
