Success Story: Mark Cuban Treated His Dizziness With VR

In 2015, Mark returned from a long walk feeling nauseated and dizzy.

Doctors suggest him to a see a psychiatrist because they thought it was stress related. However, Mark rejected that theory and started searching the internet to find answers. The search led him to Howard T. Mango, an audiologist at California's Newport-Mesa Audiology Balance and Ear Institute.

After the tests, Mango diagnosed Mark with Otolithiasis, an inner ear problem that causes repeated episodes of vertigo lasting for seconds. Therefore, his brain and eyes were uncoordinated. Mango put him on the Epley Omniax System, a rotating chair that turns and tilts while patients wear eye-tracking hat. The long treatments improved Mark’s condition. However, with only 20 chairs in the world, Mark had to find another solution.

He possessed VR goggles and he thought to pair them with his mobile phone to play the treatment videos of Mango to produce a similar feel as the Epley Chair. After a couple of months of utilizing the VR method, Mark’s condition was significantly improved so he could cut back treatment to once a week.

Mark Cuban turned a harrowing health scare into profit. He cured of a mysterious condition with this VR method. The billionaire entrepreneur has even started a partnership with Mango to patent a VR version of his treatment program. Mango tests the program on in his practice in California.
