This paper presents a functional architecture, system level design, and preliminary experimental evaluation of a unilateral vestibular prosthesis. The sensing element of the prosthesis is a custom designed one-axis MEMS gyroscope. Similarly to the natural semicircular canal, the microscopic gyroscope senses angular motion of the head and generates voltages proportional to the corresponding angular accelerations. Then, voltages are sent to the pulse generating unit where angular motion isdoi:10.3182/20060912-3-de-2911.00006 fatcat:mtitoht3ofawxbj63qb6il7noe
