Purpose: Bengin parosysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) is caused by fast change of head movements. A person feels that everything around him moves or rotates. The most common causes are head injuries or ear infections. BPPV can be caused by otolith debris in the semicircular channels of the ear, which continue to move after the head stops to move. This causes a feeling of constant movement, which causes a contradiction with other sensory information.

Protocol of execution: Stand vertically, lean forward 30-45 degrees. Close your eyes and return to the vertical position. Stay in this position with your eyes closed for 3 – 5 seconds and open your eyes.
