Mechanism of Action
GyroStim’s mechanism of action for treating balance disorders is attributed to its targeted and incremental motion-induced stimulation of the sensorimotor system.
How does GyroStim achieve this?
The driving force behind GyroStim's efficacy is whole-body multi-axis rotation, allowing the subject to experience or re-experience motion in a safe, controlled environment.
Whole-body multi-axis rotation is made possible by automation, which brings precision, control and repeatability into the therapeutic process.
Automation also allows for data-driven treatment strategies. Using qualitative and quantitative data for clinical decision support allows for the therapy to advance at an optimal pace, appropriate for the patient.
Treatment advances via a library of relative intensity motion protocols that serves as a framework for data-driven progression of individualized treatment programs.
Throughout the treatment, interactive multisensory stimulation is presented in a variety of cognitive and physical challenges such as hitting laser targets or doing math equations, or both, during rotation.
