Technology and Specifications

Technical Description
The GyroStim is a computer controlled, multi-axis rotational chair. It consists of:

  • a stationary base platform, that rotates in the yaw axis,
  • reinforced chair frame situated inside the “u” frame that
  • rotates in the pitch axis,
  • 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.

The GyroStim is intended 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 that surrounds 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.
