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.

Target Strategies


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

Laser Pointer Strategies


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

Cognitive Strategies


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 Strategies


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
