Jackson Gannon's mom says he said his first 2 words since his accident which was 1-2 days following his last GyroStim training session at AVORA Health.

Note: The news report indicated that "(Dr. Fox) believed it could help Jackson learn to speak again." This was only a portion of Dr. Fox's statement during the interview regarding speech. It is important to know that while we have seen evidence of speech improvement with Jackson as well as other patients, we do not claim in any capacity to treat speech related issues.
Dr. Fox's official stance on GyroStim and speech improvement is "We have seen patient speech improvements through the use of GyroStim, but do not specifically treat speech and do not claim to be Speech Therapists. The results are anecdotal to the underlying conditions (such as concussions) that we treat as vestibular rehabilitation experts."
