About GyroStim


What is GyroStim?

GyroStim is an automated, computer-controlled, multi-axis rotational and positional chair.

What is it used for?

GyroStim is used to induce therapeutic stimulation of the human sensorimotor system.

Is GyroStim effective and safe?
Yes. GyroStim has passed all regulatory safety tests, is FDA-cleared, and has been designated by the FDA as a Breakthrough Medical Device.

What is GyroStim used for?  

GyroStim's automated and precisely controlled whole-body rotational capabilities are used for administering therapeutic motion-induced stimulation to challenge and enhance the functional performance of the sensorimotor system; the complex network of sensory and motor systems located throughout the body that interconnects with the brain.


GyroStim is used for treating a wide range of  symptoms and problems that manifest from balance disorders and vestibular dysfunction.


GyroStim is also used to help improve athletic performance.

  • Clinical Applications:
    Improving the performance of the sensorimotor system has clinical applications for the treatment of balance disorders, vestibular dysfunction, and associated symptoms such as imbalance, nausea, headache, fatigue, vision sensitivities, dizziness, motion sickness, anxiety, brain fog and poor concentration.


  • Athletic Performance Applications:
    Top athletic performance can be achieved ONLY when both physical AND mental capabilities are synchronized and operating at peak performance.

    GyroStim is the most effective device for improving sensorimotor performance. Data-driven training sessions push sensorimotor capabilities, improving body and brain synchronization, which allows top athletes from around the world to push their ultimate athletic performance.


Your ability to perceive, process, and react to your surrounding environment (your receptive field) is directly tied to the functional performance of your sensorimotor system: the complex network of sensory and motor systems located throughout your body that interconnects with your brain.

How does GyroStim work?

  • Perceive: sensory information from the eyes (vision), ears (hearing), vestibular system (perception of gravity, motion, and spatial orientation), proprioception (skin, muscles, joints) and other peripheral sensory structures is transmitted to the brain stem

  • Process: the perceived sensory information is  processed throughout the cerebellum and cerebral cortex (sensory integration)

  • React: the brain stem fires impulses to muscles throughout the body in reaction to the perceived and processed sensory information

Head injury, illness, neurological conditions, and the aging process can interfere with the performance of this complex system. When this happens, balance problems, reduced physical and cognitive abilities, and other chronic symptoms may occur.

Fortunately, the sensorimotor system can be rehabilitated. Just as physical injuries can be rehabilitated with therapy comprised of exercises designed to challenge and strengthen the injured structure, the sensorimotor system can be rehabilitated with a regimen of exercises designed to challenge and improve the functional performance of the sensorimotor system.

GyroStim works by incrementally challenging and improving the functional performance of the sensorimotor system. It moves your body in pre-programmed motions through space to generate motion-induced stimulation of the sensorimotor system. The motions induce a flood of simultaneous stimulation to sensory structures located throughout your body (eyes, ears, skin, joints, etc.) that challenges and rehabilitates your ability to perceive, process, and react to the world around you. Each therapy session is precisely controlled and data-driven, allowing for individualized and optimized therapy, while protecting the patient from overstimulation.
