What is PoNS™?

PoNS™ (short for Portable Neuromodulation Stimulator) is an innovative non-invasive 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 in patients who have suffered from a mild-to-moderate traumatic brain injury (including concussions or post-concussive syndrome).

How does PoNS™ work?

When the PoNS™ device is on, the mild impulses to the tongue 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, along with other important functions.  When the stimulation is combined with physical exercises, changes to these connections of the brain may occur. Training with the PoNS™ can help to strengthen the pathways and facilitate the recovery of function, which may result in improvements of balance and gait. Balance and gait training are part of PoNS Treatment™ program, performed with the help of a Certified PoNS™ Trainer during the 14-week program.
