Technology and Specifications

The GyroStim is a computer-controlled multi-axis rotating chair that rotates in pitch (forward/backward) and yaw (left/right) through 360 degrees continuously at rotation rates that can be controlled between 1 revolution per minute (RPM) and 30 RPM.

It consists of a base platform and a rotating chair assembly situated inside a clear Lexan safety perimeter.

GyroStim is controlled via a user interface computer and easy to use intuitive software placed at an operator station outside the interlocked safety perimeter.

Laser detecting targets are mounted on the inside of the safety perimeter, around the rotating chair, and may be repositioned as needed.

A system of hardware and software interlocks and other fail-safe design strategies are used to provide maximum safety of the subject and operator during rotation.
