What the ROCK STEADY data shows:
The Success Rates of ROCK STEADY: The data.
*We currently have 1,950 people Seeking Balance** and our data collection shows that symptom progress scores are improving for ROCK STEADY users. The data collected is from clients who consent to be involved in research. We have a research sample of 233 participants. 99% of these ROCK STEADY users report feeling benefit and would recommend the program to those suffering with vertigo or tinnitus.
The average disability score of people prior to commencing ROCK STEADY is 51.8. This means that they experience symptoms more than 50% of the time in functional, emotional or positional situations. This is a perceived disability in daily life that impacts significantly on their quality of life.
In contrast, the average perceived disability score of people who are currently participating in ROCK STEADY is only 26.7.
ROCK STEADY participants show an average improvement of 72.6%. This means that they are feeling on average 72.6% better in functional, emotional and positional situations since starting the ROCK STEADY program when compared to their initial perceived symptom score. Of the 41 participants we tracked, 15 of these (36.5%) had more than a 90% improvement in their symptom scores.
NOTE: Medical advice from your doctor is recommended and we encourage you to inform your doctor about starting ROCK STEADY and to share your progress scores with them.
(Thank you to everyone who has completed questionnaires- I value your time and efforts. Keep going!)
