Data-driven Progression


Vestibular therapy moves through a progression. That progression sometimes means moving forward, backward, or idling in neutral to ultimately obtain optimal results for each patient. The best way to determine the next steps in any therapeutic progression is by using data.


Former Hewlett Packard CEO, Carly Fiorina, is quoted as saying, “the goal is to turn data into information, and information into insight.” GyroStim software collects, monitors, and displays clinically relevant quantitative data and qualitative data indicating the patient’s response to each step in therapy.


Clinicians can use the information derived from this data for insight to assess how to progress with treatment: whether to reduce the intensity, increase the intensity, or keep the intensity the same. The data is also used to monitor and avoid patient over-stimulation. The result is a data-driven therapeutic treatment that is individualized, optimized, tolerable, efficient, and safe.​​


The flow chart below illustrates how the subjective data and objective data may be combined and evaluated to determine strategic run-to-run progression strategies. The methodology shown was developed in collaboration with researchers from Fort Carson Army installation in Colorado Springs.
