GyroStim Overview

Breakthrough technology. Breakthrough treatment. Breakthrough outcomes.

What is GyroStim?

That depends on who's asking...

For patients: GyroStim is a breakthrough medical device that helps the brain heal itself from within - without drugs and without surgery. It is a beacon of hope for patients with conditions such as concussion and TBI, cerebral palsy, autism spectrum disorder, MS, Parkinson's, Down syndrome, and age-related balance problems that benefit from motion-induced vestibular stimulation.

For athletes: GyroStim is the most advanced, efficient, and effective means for improving the core of athleticism - the sensorimotor system. 

For clinicians: GyroStim is a quantum leap in therapeutic treatment capabilities. It overcomes the inherent physical limitations and challenges of manually administered physical therapy strategies that therapists have struggled with - forever. It is a prestigious differentiator for clinics wanting to rise above and be a standout in the competitive healthcare market. When looking back, many clinicians realize GyroStim was the single most pivotal investment they ever made into the health of their patients and into the financial health of their bottom line.

Okay, but what is GyroStim?

GyroStim is a highly specialized, computer-controlled, electromechanical, multi-axis rotational chair. To describe it another way, GyroStim is a powerful and precise robot that is designed specifically to harness and administer the therapeutic benefits of motion - a feat that is virtually impossible without the technological advancements of GyroStim.

How does it work?

GyroStim works by moving your entire body through space, generating controlled dosages of gentle yet powerful motion-induced therapeutic stimulation. The stimulation is highly effective for treating symptoms of vestibular dysfunction and other sensory processing dysfunctions throughout your body and brain.

Why is it effective?

GyroStim therapy is effective because it gets right to the source of the problem: the functional performance of the sensorimotor system. GyroStim provides repetitious motion-induce stimulation to multiple functional processes throughout the sensorimotor system, promoting neuroplasticity, and helping the brain heal itself.

 

According to NASA:

"The sensorimotor system is a network that includes the sensory organs (eyes, ears, skin), parts of the nervous system, and the body's motor controls. It governs the human body's ability to perceive and respond to the external environment, as well as its ability to move and other functional activities."

The human sensorimotor system enables you to interact with the world around you and the vestibular system is a major contributor to the functional performance of the sensorimotor system.

 

Concussion, TBI, advanced age, illness, and other neurological conditions often cause vestibular dysfunction which disrupts the functional performance of the sensorimotor system. When this happens, interacting with the world becomes fraught with debilitating symptoms such as dizziness and motion sensitivity, headache, nausea, brain fog, depression, sleep disorders, sensitivity to light and sound, and many other symptoms that may be easily triggered, come and go, or persist indefinitely.

Clinicians and patients consistently report that GyroStim provides life-changing reduction, and in many cases, a complete elimination of persistent symptoms when all other treatment options have failed.

In some cases, pharmaceuticals can help temporarily mask symptoms, but they can also induce undesirable side effects - and drugs don't actually 'fix' the source of the symptoms. Rehabilitation for symptoms of vestibular dysfunction typically involves manually administered physical therapy (PT) strategies that target the dysfunction, however,  manually administered PT has inherent limitations and drawbacks.

 

GyroStim therapy is a highly advanced form of physical therapy that overcomes the limitations of manually administered PT. GyroStim's advanced technology can administer multiple types of therapeutic strategies, simultaneously, helping to coordinate, synchronize, and improve the functional performance of the sensorimotor system.

 

Therapy progression is data-driven, precisely controlled, safe, comfortable, and accessible by practically everyone, including patients with severe physical or neurological conditions. Clinical data indicates rehabilitation with GyroStim is up to 5 times more effective than manual PT therapy alone.
