I am raising money for the PoNS device which is a device which will regain my ability to walk normally again. I have MS and have great difficulty with my walking. The device costs $25, 000 at present, and is unafordable to me, even though doctors agree that it would be very beneficial to me. It is not covered by OHIP or insurance.
The PoNS™ device delivers mild stimulation to nerves in the tongue, which connect to the brain. This stimulation, combined with targeted physiotherapy, is believed to promote neuroplasticity, to provide functional improvements in balance and mobility.
