A Biomechanical Model of the Inner Ear: Numerical Simulation of the Caloric Test

Figure 1

(a) The reconstructed model of a healthy human membranous labyrinth with dimension extracted from the report by Ifediba et al. [18]. The reconstruction is presented with + as posterior, + as right lateral, and + as superior. (b) Finite element mesh used for the simulations. (c) The gravitational direction during the caloric test. The gravity is parallel to the + -axis when the head is in the supine position.
