Anatomy of a GyroStim Session

The video illustrates how

GyroStim treatment begins with very slow, non-inverting, visuomotor motion profiles.

The intensity (rotation speed and degree of tilt) is incrementally adjusted to keep pace with the gains of the patient as their visuomotor processing abilities improve.

 

As the gains continue, the therapy intensity can be increased to present more complex and comprehensive challenges to the sensorimotor system. Click here to view a video with multiple applications and greater intensities.

 

GyroStim protocols can be presented in a series of "runs" that will strategically and incrementally challenge the sensorimotor processing abilities of the patient. 

GyroStim's high performance automation systems are powerful and precise, allowing for a wide range of applications. At low levels of stimulation intensity GyroStim is used to treat people with severe impairment, at high levels of stimulation it is used to supercharge the sensorimotor system for athletic performance enhancement, and at any level in between GyroStim can be used for a multitude of applications. 

 

GyroStim is uniquely capable of providing a wide range of dosage intensities that can be adapted to meet the changing needs of each patient as they progress in their recovery.

  • A GyroStim session typically lasts 30 minutes and is made up of one or more therapeutic stimulations, referred to as 'runs'.
     

  • Each run is typically between 15 and 60 seconds long. There will be a short rest period between each run, followed by an assessment of symptoms.

  • Everyone begins GyroStim therapy with gentle, slow, predictable, non-inverting, low-intensity motion profiles. This allows everyone, even those who are extremely sensitive to motion, the opportunity to experience the sensations and activities involved with the therapy without feeling anxious, overwhelmed, or overstimulated.

  • Multiple laser-detecting targets are positioned on the safety perimeter around the GyroStim. During the run, the patient may be tasked with using a hand-held laser pointer to hit as many targets as possible with the laser beam. Each target hit is counted to produce a 'hits per minute' score for the run. The patient may also be given a task to engage in cognitive challenges while in motion and attempting to hit targets.
     

  • The clinician can use the hits per minute score as a quantifiable measure of the subject's ability to perceive, process, and react to the intensity and challenge of each run. Keeping score in this way also adds a gamification aspect to the therapy, making it motivating and fun.

  • At the end of each run, subjective responses, i.e. headache, dizziness, nausea, brain fog, and other physiological responses are assessed and recorded together with the objective responses. The clinician uses this information to assess how the patient responded to the run and for guidance on how best to proceed with the next run. This information is also used for monitoring and preventing overstimulation.

  • The GyroStim software has a library of profiles that provide quick access to GyroStim's 30 levels of intensity. There are four different durations available for each level of intensity. When used with the GyroStim Run-to-Run Progression Strategy, the clinician can administer therapy sessions that are individualized, optimized, safe, and effective.
     

GyroStim treatment sessions are comfortable, safe, and effective. Improving the performance of the sensorimotor system is no simple task. It requires targeted therapeutic rehabilitation that can be administered strategically, with precision, and control.

If you trust the FDA with their decision to designate GyroStim as a Breakthrough Medical Device, trust GyroStim to help complete your recovery.
