This study reports 21 patients who suffered from vertigo and underwent a complete otorhinolaryngological evaluation and otoneurological tests to establish a peripherallabyrinthine disorder. All patients were given the Unterberger stepping test in a motion analysis laboratory. Their results were compared to those of a population of 21 normal individuals who were analyzed in the same motion laboratory. A precise description of sway, angular deviation, and test duration was obtained from the VICON motion analysis program. As expected, angUlar deviation was statistically greater in the group with vestibular disorders.
