Autonomic function tests
Our equipment is also able to assess the function of autonomic nervous system which is commonly affected in people with conditions such as diabetes and Parkinson's disease.
Our clinical laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment to conduct tilt-table testing which is a test to diagnose causes of fainting.
We evaluate those who have had episodes of loss of consciousness to find out what could have caused these episodes. Common causes include medications, low blood pressure and heart conditions. We will then provide lifestyle advise and develop treatment strategies to reduce the risk of future episodes.
We evaluate older adults at risk of falls or who have fallen to reduce risk of future falls
