Perceive, Process, React
Your ability to interact with the receptive fields of your surrounding environment is directly tied to the functional performance of your sensorimotor system; the complex network of sensory input and motor output signals that are interconnected with the brain. The sensorimotor system essentially connects your body with your brain, providing you with the capabilities to perceive, process, and react to the dynamic challenges of your world.
Detailed information about the receptive field of the world around you is sensed through the eyes (vision), ears (hearing), vestibular system (perception of gravity, motion, and spatial orientation), proprioception (skin, muscles, joints - touch), and other parts of the sensory nervous system and transmitted to the brain.
Perceived sensory information is received and distributed throughout the brain, igniting a cascade of processing activity as the brain goes to work, forming an appropriate response to the perceived sensory information.
The brain responds to the perceived and processed sensory information by firing voluntary and involuntary motor commands throughout the body, causing a reaction to the perceived sensory information.
We are walking talking sensorimotor systems.
When all aspects of the sensorimotor system are healthy and functioning well, interacting with the dynamic challenges of the environment, such as maintaining balance while shopping in a store, reading on a computer screen, or navigating a busy traffic intersection, seem to happen naturally, automatically, and with ease.
However, injury, disease, certain medications, and the aging process can interfere with the performance of one or more sensorimotor processes, resulting in a noticeable decline in your ability to process and interact with the surrounding environment. Balance problems and associated symptoms such as stumbling and falling, motion sensitivity, disorientation, brain fog, feeling off-balance, frequent headaches, nausea, concentration and memory problems, and anxiety are just some of the manifestations that can occur.
Fortunately, the sensorimotor system has neuroplastic capabilities that provide opportunities for rehabilitation. GyroStim's motion induced vestibular and sensorimotor stimulation can provide direct therapeutic stimulation, exercise, and challenge to the functional performance of the sensorimotor system.
GyroStim is uniquely capable of stimulating, challenging, and improving
the functional performance of the sensorimotor system.
