Vesticon™ is a medical technology company focused on
helping physicians and their patients achieve Victory Over
Vertigo. The company was founded in 2003, has eleven employees,
and is located in close-in NE Portland, Oregon.
The company has recently begun taking orders for the Epley Omniax system, the company's first commercial product. Current vestibular medical devices provide a general assesment or vague diagnosis, but none provide treatment. The Epley Omniax system assists medical professionals in diagnosing and treating balance disorders and vertigo, including benign paroxysmal positional vertigo.
The company has several other products in development that
share some hardware and software components with the Omniax.
The Omniax uses software, video goggles and a hardware
apparatus to position a patient in any plane. Launch
of additional products, already now in advanced
development, is expected over the next two years..
Market segments for the three products will include: Neurotology, otology, otolaryngology, audiology, vestibular physical therapy and rehabilitation.
