GyroStim is the medtech marvel recently designated by the FDA as a Breakthrough Medical Device for its superior capabilities to administer highly effective motion-induced therapies.
What is GyroStim?
GyroStim is a computer-controlled, automated, multi-axis rotational chair. It is a highly specialized robotic chair that is designed to automate whole-body human rotation; to make motion-induced therapies safer, more accessible, more efficient, and more effective than ever before.
GyroStim has recently been designated by the FDA as a Breakthrough Medical Device for its superior ability to provide safe and effective treatment for balance disorders and vestibular dysfunction. GyroStim is the first and only medical device for the treatment of vestibular dysfunction to ever qualify for Breakthrough Device designation by the FDA.
How does it work?
GyroStim works by moving your entire body through space to generate precisely controlled dosages of motion-induced therapeutic stimulation. The motions induce stimulation of multiple sensorimotor systems throughout your body simultaneously. No other means or device, manual or mechanical, can match the complex, powerful, and effective capabilities of GyroStim.
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.
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. The vestibular system is extremely complex and is a major contributor to the sensorimotor system. When the vestibular system is impaired due to head injury, advanced age, some illnesses, and other neurological conditions, the sensorimotor system becomes dysfunctional.
Interacting with the world becomes fraught with debilitating symptoms such as dizziness and motion sensitivity, headache, nausea, brain fog, sleep disorders, sensitivity to light and sound, and many other symptoms that may come and go, or persist indefinitely.
GyroStim can help improve the functional performance of the vestibular and other sensory systems, thereby improving the functional performance of the sensorimotor system. The result can be a reduction, and in many cases, a complete elimination of persistent symptoms.
