It is estimated that there are approximately 500,000 patients suffering from vertigo nationwide, or 2.67 million* if latent patients are included. However, the number of doctors specialized in vertigo in the department of otorhinolaryngology are less than 10% of the total number. The current situation is that sufficient medical care is not being provided to all of the patient. One of the reasons for this is the high hurdle in introducing dizziness testing equipment.
