We believe anyone who has survived a brain injury should have the opportunity to maximize their potential and quality of life.

About PoNS™ Treatment

PoNS™ (Portable Neuromodulation Stimulator) Treatment is an intensive, customized state-of-the-art neurological rehabilitation plan. Built on science and research, PoNS™ treatment, used in conjunction with physical therapy, has been shown to help people with chronic balance deficits caused by mild to moderate traumatic brain injury (mTBI).

This treatment was shown in a 26-week clinical trial to restore balance to the normal range for a majority of study participants. For most participants, this balance improvement persisted during a predefined 12-week follow-up period after discontinuation of treatment, suggesting retention of the treatment effect.

In Canada, the PoNS™ device is indicated for the treatment of chronic balance deficit in patients with mTBI when used in conjunction with physical therapy. If the PoNS™ Treatment is to be used for any other condition, it should be considered off-label and a qualified health care professional will need to evaluate the risks and benefits of such treatment for that condition.

Comprehensive assessments using innovative neurotechnology

All decisions related to your care are evidence-based, with each step of the program supported by a team focused on ensuring the treatment is as successful as possible.

Unique, non-invasive treatment provided by the PoNS™ ® Device

PoNS™ Treatment, comprised of using the device in conjunction with physical therapy, has been shown to improve chronic balance deficits in patients who have mild to moderate traumatic brain injury.

Triad of Care

Our model of care is composed of three essential elements: non-invasive and innovative medical devices, physical therapy, and a personalized care team supporting our clients along each step of the way. The Heuro Program is constantly evaluated and fine-tuned to ensure we offer the most up-to-date treatments possible.

What is neuroplasticity?

In essence, neuroplasticity is the brain’s incredible ability to change. Over an individual’s lifetime, their brain will constantly be reorganizing itself to form new neural connections in response to their changing needs. The Heuro Program uses approaches to leverage this important healing process.

Injury or disease can disrupt the connections in your brain, causing damage that requires treatment. By supporting the brain’s ability to rebuild connections through the Heuro Program, it is possible for a brain to compensate for the damage caused by injury or disease. While this process typically happens over a long period of time, it may be accelerated by neuromodulation techniques that utilize non-invasive brain stimulation, such as the PoNS™ Treatment.

Who will benefit from the Heuro Program and the PoNS™ Treatment?

The PoNS™ device has been cleared by Health Canada for treatment of chronic balance deficit due to mild to moderate brain injury and used in conjunction with physical therapy.

People who have a chronic balance deficit caused by mild to moderate traumatic brain injury who can perform physical therapy are the ideal candidates for treatment.
