The GyroStim Method

GyroStim provides a method of data-driven incremental advancement that ensures maximum training intensity is applied while protecting the individual from overstimulation, resulting in training sessions that are individualized, optimized, comfortable, and effective.

 
   
 
REHABILITATION:
EVERYONE begins with low-intensity training. As abilities improve, the training intensity can be increased, building on current abilities and driving new gains.
   
 
 

SPORTS PERFORMANCE TRAINING:

Here's a closer look:

A typical training session is 30 minutes, consisting of multiple "runs". Runs are typically thirty to sixty seconds (but can be shorter or longer). Runs are separated by a short rest period. 

The intensity of each run, how fast the training advances, the number of runs per session, and the total number of sessions are driven by each individual’s qualitative and quantitative response to each run, and their overall objectives for GyroStim training. As an example, a person using GyroStim to recover from injury or illness will typically progress more slowly and train with lower intensity profiles than a person training to improve athletic performance.

Getting Started:

GyroStim’s library of pre-written motion profiles covers a broad spectrum of motion variables for a diverse variety of applications. The library provides the operator quick and easy access to the exact motion profile desired to meet the need for each run. 

  • Everyone begins GyroStim training with slow, predictable, non-inverting motion profiles. This allows subjects of all levels of abilities opportunity to become acquainted with the sensations and activities involved with the training, and without experiencing motion discomfort or sensory overload. 

  • Multiple laser detecting targets are located on the safety perimeter around the GyroStim. During the run, the subject uses a handheld laser pointer to hit as many targets as possible. Each target hit is communicated to the GyroStim software monitor. This targeting activity provides interactive challenge to many aspects of the sensorimotor system that runs throughout the human body and brain. It also provides a quantifiable measure of the subject’s ability to respond to the training intensity. Additionally, the gamification aspect of keeping score contributes to engagement and motivation.

  • At the end of the run, the subject’s qualitative response, i.e. headache, nausea, dizziness, brain-fog, and other possible symptomatic responses are recorded and assessed together with their quantitative response, i.e. target hits per minute. This assessment will be used by the GyroStim operator for information on how the subject is responding to the current training intensity, and, guidance on how best to proceed with the next run. 

Incremental Advancement:

One of GyroStim’s most important features is its method of data-driven incremental advancement. GyroStim monitors each individual’s qualitative (how you feel in response to a given level of training intensity) and quantitative (your ability to engage in a given level of training intensity) response to each run. This provides the GyroStim operator with information to ensure maximum training intensity is applied with each run, while protecting the individual from overstimulation.

  • As the subject successfully completes a run level, as evidenced by combined quantitative and qualitative data, the subject’s training will advance to a higher level of challenge for the next run.   
         
  • In addition, the subject can be tasked with cognitive exercises during the run to further target the training to meet the specific needs of the subject, continually building new gains.

Innovative engineering, computerized automation, and superbly integrated technologies, GyroStim is the world’s most advanced data-driven system and method for stimulating, exercising, and optimizing the sensorimotor system. 

GyroStim provides clinicians, researchers, and athletic trainers with the power, precision, and versatility required for a wide range of applications.
