GyroStim Technology and Specifications


Technical Description

The GyroStim is a computer controlled, multi-axis rotational chair. It consists of a stationary base platform, a “u” shaped frame that rotates in the yaw axis, a reinforced chair frame situated inside the “u” frame that rotates in the pitch axis, a safety perimeter around the rotating chair assembly, an arrangement of integrated laser detecting targets distributed around the rotating chair safety perimeter, and a computer/operator station. Its purpose is to provide a wide variety of controlled intensities of sensorimotor challenges during rotational motions in the pitch and yaw axis.

GyroStim is controlled via a user interface computer and easy to use intuitive software placed at an operator station outside the interlocked safety perimeter.

Laser detecting targets are mounted on the inside of the safety perimeter, around the rotating chair, and may be repositioned as needed.

A system of hardware and software interlocks and other fail-safe design strategies are used to provide maximum safety of the subject and operator during rotation.

GyroStim drive systems are fully enclosed and maintenance free. There are no chains to lubricate, cables to adjust or electronic devices to calibrate.

Patents

GyroStim technology was granted protection for its innovative pitch axis inside yaw axis design. This specific arrangement and combination of axes of rotation provide powerful and complex vestibular stimulation.

It efficiently and effectively delivers a broad spectrum of angular velocities and angular accelerations to stimulate and challenge cognition and the sensorimotor system.  

GyroStim also holds a patent for interactive targeting while inside a rotating chair. GyroStim’s rotating chair is surrounded by an arrangement of repositionable laser detecting targets, for which there are many possible configurations and applications of use.
