GyroStim Run-to-Run Progression

GyroStim treatment is based on methodical, data-driven, incremental advancement to ensure optimal stimulation intensity while protecting from over-stimulation. The result is treatment sessions that are individualized, optimized, well-tolerated, efficient, and effective.

The flow chart at right illustrates how the subjective data and objective data may be combined to provide strategic run-to-run progression strategies.

This data-driven approach provides the clinician with valuable and timely feedback that helps individualize and optimize the therapy session while protecting the individual from over-stimulation, resulting in therapy that is well-tolerated and effective.

“The biomedical scientific community is currently experiencing a dramatic expansion in how data are being used to generate new knowledge and accomplish the goals of reducing disease and disability and improving healthcare delivery. (Ottenbacher et al., 2018)”.

Collaborative Design

UltraThera Technologies, the maker of GyroStim, collaborated with research scientists at the Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center (DVBIC) and US Army researchers at Ft. Carson, Colorado, in the development of a data-driven methodology for using GyroStim to improve the functional performance of the sensorimotor system.

The collaboration resulted in a flow chart expression of the strategic run-to-run progression strategy that utilizes subjective data and objective data for clinical decision support (CDS). This data-driven approach is highly effective, easily disseminated, and is the leading strategy for clinical applications.


Cognitive & Physical Strategies

GyroStim provides for a broad spectrum of methodical, data-driven strategies to target specific goals for individuals from all walks of life. The possibilities for including complementary cognitive exercises during a GyroStim profile for targeted therapies are virtually unlimited.




Laser-detecting targets offer strategies for reinforcing visuomotor, spatial awareness, and discernment.

  • Targets placed at same or varying heights

  • Targets placed at same or varying distance.

  • Targets identified by colors, numbers, letters or shapes.

  • Custom targets: relevant to subject such as aircraft instrument panel



Various ways to engage and challenge sensorimotor systems throughout the human body.

  • Laser in the dominant or non-dominant hand

  • One laser in each hand, alternate left / right hand in sequence

  • One laser in each hand, alternate left / right per clinicians verbal commands

  • Laser mounted on head with headgear, or on other parts of the body as needed



Additional cognitive challenges during GyroStim training to improve multi-tasking and brain processing capability.

  • Counting up or down in sequence

  • Simple or complex math equations

  • Familiar list recitation

  • Short or long term recall challenges


Physical / Situational

To exercise sensorimotor challenges specific to the individual.

  • Interactive: rotate while actively pursuing targets, with the option to engage in cognitive activities

  • Passive: rotate with head fixed and staring at a fixed point inside the rotating chair

  • Eye-patch on dominant or non-dominant eye

  • Subject wears sports gear (i.e. football helmet, hockey helmet) during session

  • Crowd/stadium noise or other appropriate background recordings are played loudly during the run
