The GyroStim Method in Practice

GyroStim training provides a method of data-driven incremental advancement that ensures maximum training intensity is applied while protecting the individual from over-stimulation, 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.
   
 
 

ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE TRAINING:

Getting started:

  • 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. 


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


  • Multiple laser detecting targets are located on the safety perimeter
    surrounding the GyroStim. The individual uses a hand-held laser pointer to hit as many targets as possible during the run.


  • The individual may be instructed to use his dominant hand, non-dominant hand, alternating both hands, or other strategies.

  • Each target hit is communicated to the GyroStim software for processing to provide a quantifiable measure of the individual's ability to respond to the training intensity. In addition, the subject can be tasked with specific cognitive exercises during the run to further individualize and optimize the training.

Data-driven Advancement:

  • At the end of the run, the subject's qualitative response, i.e. headache, dizziness, nausea, brain-fog (VOMS Scale), and other possible symptomatic responses are recorded and assessed together with their quantitative data, i.e. target hits per minute. This assessment data 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.

  • This data-driven progression strategy ensures maximum training intensity is applied while protecting the individual from over-stimulation, resulting in training sessions that are individualized, optimized, comfortable, and effective.


GyroStim is a versatile tool with a broad spectrum of applications to support people from all walks of life and all abilities ranging from those with profound disabilities to top performing athletes. Ultimately, the goal is the same: to challenge and improve the functional performance of the sensorimotor system.
