Brief Summary:
Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) is one of the most common types of vertigo, especially in elderly. Therefore the investigators have set the goal to evaluate the prevalence of BPPV and its therapy using the Rotundum device in elderly living in retirement homes. Furthermore the investigators use a questionnaire to evaluate possible predictive signs to improve the diagnosis of this disease.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Evaluation of prevalence of BPPV
Epley/Barbeque maneuver will be performed using the Rotundum Device to assess if subject has BPPV, patient will thereafter be treated for it using the Rotundum Device.
Diagnostic Test: Epley maneuver/Barbeque maneuver
Subjects will be rotated using the Rotundum Device to perform the previously described maneuvers Epley/Barbeque to evaluate the presence of BPPV.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Prevalence of BPPV [ Time Frame: Subjects (outcome measure) are assessed during the first 4 Years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Evaluation of predictive Factors [ Time Frame: Is assessed after all subjects have been tested (after 5 Years) ]
    Questionnaire answers
