Background: Brandt Daroff (BD) and modified Epley maneuver (MEM) are independent vestibular rehabilitation therapeutic home program exercises for Benign Poxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV)patients using sensory integration. BD is an adaption process in vestibular system and MEM is based oncanalith reposition. Purpose: To find out and compare the effects of BD and MEM on improving symptomsof balance disorder in BPPV patients. Methods: A pilot study with quasi experimental design for 23BPPV subjects, taken by consecutive sampling. Subjects are male and female, aged 20-60 years old. Byrandomization, subjects were allocated into two groups, group BD (n=12) and group MEM (n=11). Thevalue of symptoms severity was scored using McNemar test. The posturography result was evaluated byPair t test or Wilcoxon Signed Rank test. Result: There was a significant difference on SSS value (p<0,05)of BD exercise and MEM exercise. No significant difference was found on posturography scores withMEM exercise. There was a significant difference (p<0,05) on ten posturography variables using BDexercise. No significant difference was found between BD and MME from SSS and posturography value(p>0,05). Conclusion: This study found out that there was a significantly faster improvement of SSS inthe BD group compared with the MME group.
