About the PoNS™
The PoNS™ device is a non-invasive means for delivering
neurostimulation through the tongue. The PoNS™ therapy is currently being
studied in the United States and Canada for the treatment of balance disorder
for subjects with mild to moderate Traumatic Brain Injury (“mTBI”), and in
Canada for the treatment of gait and balance disorder for subjects with MS.
The PoNS™ device is believed to be the first non-invasive
means for delivering neurostimulation through the tongue. Researchers believe
that use of the tongue as a gateway to the brain may be one of the most
natural, non-invasive and direct ways to stimulate the brain. The tongue is
anatomically unique, being richly innervated by thousands of nerve fibers and
interconnected to the brainstem by two major cranial nerves.
