On A Path To Recovery
"The PoNS™ Device was easy to use and the exercise program designed by the practitioners was personalized based on my needs. With the device tracking my daily exercise and usage, my PoNS™ Trainer could monitor my progress and ensure I was on the right track. By the end of 14 weeks, the Treatment proved to be incredibly helpful and has resulted in improvements in my gait. After 32 years, while I know I am on a challenging path, I owe a huge debt of gratitude to PoNS™ and the A4A team for helping me to continue regain control of my life." E.B.
Off To The Races
“When I got started with PoNS Treatment™ at the Surrey Neuroplasticity Clinic, I didn't know what to expect. While the process required commitment and discipline, I loved my PoNS™ Trainer and the exercises! During the first two weeks I started to notice changes in my gait. My progress was so encouraging. Due to the improvements in my gait and balance, I am now able to finish five miles straight, which I couldn’t do prior to PoNS Treatment™.” V.S.*

CLIMBING STAIRS TO SUCCESS
“Hope is a dangerous thing with MS, so I entered PoNS Treatment™ with cautious optimism. My caution quickly turned to encouragement as I saw almost immediate results! Within the first two weeks I experienced significant balance improvements, and starting in week eight, I saw improvements in gait. Prior to my treatment I walked the stairs by stepping up with my right leg and dragging my left leg even, but now I experience periods every day where I walk up the stairs normally. It's like my body is waking up after years of dormancy. I’ve experienced really encouraging results from my PoNS Treatment™.” K.B.
THE PATH TO MANAGING MY MS
“PoNS Treatment™ was the next step for me in my MS journey after being diagnosed almost 15 years ago. It was exciting but is a lot of work and a big commitment. My wonderful PoNS™ Trainer at Synaptic, my clinic in Calgary, worked with me diligently, answered all of my many questions, kept me motivated and provided different strategies when I got discouraged. At the end of the 14-week program I noticed a significant difference in my gait, which I was very happy about. My balance and endurance are also both much better than when I started the program. The PoNS Treatment™ program is a wonderful journey to embark upon. Overall, it’s great to see we now have one more option to help us manage the path in our MS journey.” S.K.
