Now there is hope.
The PoNS™ device is intended for use as an acute treatment of chronic balance deficit due to mild-to-moderate traumatic brain injury (mmTBI), and is to be used in conjunction with physical therapy (PT).

In clinical trials, 70% of patients who have completed the 14-week PoNS TreatmentTM have experienced significant improvements in their balance and mobility.
WHAT IS PONS™?
The PoNS (short for Portable Neuromodulation Stimulator) is an innovative medical device that delivers mild electrical stimulation to the nerves of the tongue that connect with the nerves in the brain that may help restore balance and gait.
HOW DOES PONS™ WORK?
When the device is on, the electrodes send mild electrical impulses to the tongue. These impulses stimulate the cranial nerves that have direct connections into the brain through the brain stem, the part of the brain that controls posture and balance. When the stimulation is combined with physical activity, changes may occur in the neural network. Training helps to strengthen the pathways and facilitates the recovery of function, which may result in improvements of balance and gait. Both balance and gait training are part of PoNS TreatmentTM which is done using the PoNSTM device with the help of a PoNS TreatmentTM specialist.
Thousands of Canadians suffer from persistent symptoms from a mild to moderate traumatic brain injury (mTBI). These symptoms have a significant impact on their quality of life, their ability to do their job and on the lives of their family and loved ones.
Recent mTBI clinical trial data (one five week and one 14 week treatment trial) has demonstrated that a program of physical therapy in conjunction with PoNS™ Treatment helped a majority of patients restore their balance to within the normal range for their sex and age.
On average, this balance improvement persisted during a predetermined 12-week follow-up period after discontinuation of treatment suggesting a permanent positive change to the balance deficit. The improvements experienced were significantly greater than previously documented in literature for physical therapy alone.
