GyroStim is used by clinicians, researchers, and athletic trainers who recognize the value
of greater power, precision, and control in practical applications of vestibular stimulation.
GyroStim’s unique combination of vestibular stimulation and sensorimotor exercise is at the forefront of new and improved strategies at clinics, universities, elite sports centers, and military training facilities in eight countries around the world.
Most often used with interactive laser targeting, GyroStim provides valuable multisensory stimulation even when used without targeting, as demonstrated in the video above.
GyroStim can accommodate individuals up to 7 feet in height as shown in the video above of a 6’7” tall NFL wide receiver.
GyroStim for Rehabilitation
GyroStim is in use at clinics and institutions that treat conditions such as mild concussion to severe traumatic brain injury, cerebral palsy, autism, developmental disabilities, PTSD, Parkinson’s disease, MS, stroke, and many other neurological conditions.
GyroStim is in use at balance and vestibular centers that diagnose and treat a broad spectrum of dizziness, disequilibrium, and balance disorders.
GyroStim for Research
GyroStim is in use at universities and research institutions pursuing a greater understanding of the vestibular system and searching for advancements in the applications of vestibular stimulation.
GyroStim is classified as a non-significant risk device and has been approved by multiple IRBs.
GyroStim for Athletic Performance
GyroStim is in use at elite sports recovery and performance training centers that focus on recovery from concussion, and helping athletes reach their greatest potential.
Athletic trainers use GyroStim as an interactive, three dimensional “brain-based” training environment to challenge and improve cognitive abilities such as decisiveness, mental acuity, situational awareness, and reaction time.
GyroStim training exercises, challenges, and enhances sensorimotor systems throughout the human body that are essential elements of athleticism, improving the brain-body connection, and optimizing athletic performance.
GyroStim is also used to help athletes who are recovering from injury. It provides an effective way to maintain balance, spatial awareness, hand-eye coordination and other essential skills while waiting to be cleared for return to practice.
GyroStim is used by researchers in the study of human / athletic performance enhancement.
The Common Denominator Across Applications
Clinicians, athletic trainers and researchers use GyroStim in diverse applications for therapeutic rehabilitation, sports training, and scientific research. Regardless of the application for GyroStim, and regardless of the functional abilities of the individual using it, the essence of GyroStim across these applications is the same: it challenges the body (physical ability) and brain (cognitive ability) to perceive, process, and react to dynamic physical and social elements in the surrounding environment.
In fractions of a second, in a never ending cycle throughout life, the brain and body work synergistically to:
PERCEIVE:Detailed information about what is happening around us is sensed through the eyes (vision), body (proprioception), ears (hearing), vestibular system (balance), and other senses, and sent via the peripheral nervous system to the brain.
PROCESS:Sensory information about the environment is received, coordinated, and distributed throughout the brain, igniting a cascade of processing activity as the brain goes to work, forming an appropriate response to the perceived sensory information.
REACT:Once the perceived sensory information has been processed, and a response has been formulated, signals from the brain are fired throughout the body to execute the intended reaction.
Human Performance exists at the intersection of Perceive, Process, and React, as illustrated in the Venn diagram above. It is the sum total of our physical and cognitive ability to interact with the world. GyroStim is uniquely capable of challenging sensorimotor systems and cognition that drive human performance.
PERCEIVE • PROCESS • REACT: the essential elements of human performance.
