Collection: Balance & Movement

The vestibular system gives us the ability to interpret information relating to movement and balance. The vestibular system uses the semi-circular canals in the inner ear to receive information about movement, change of direction, change of head position and gravitational pull. It receives information about how fast or slow we are moving, balance, movement from the neck, eyes and body, body position, and orientation in space. This system is critically intertwined with what we think of as our equilibrium, and accounts for why some of us really dislike roller coasters or experience motion sickness in cars.
