Otolith - So what the heck is an otolith?

So what the heck is an otolith?

The word "otolith" comes from two Greek roots: "otos" ear, and "lithos" stone. It refers to a small piece of bone in the human inner ear, more or less like a pebble in a small cavity lined with sensitive hairs. As the small piece of bone rests in the cavity, it presses on the hairs which correspond to the downward direction, and provide a reference for "down" to the brain.

The otolith provides crucial information for the sense of balance. In the same way, Otolith provides your business with a balance of technical expertise and practical business sense, a constant reference to the bottom line.
