What to Expect
PoNS Therapy™ is a comprehensive 14-week program that combines in-clinic and in-home use of the PoNS™ device guided by a Certified PoNS™ Trainer.
Following your initial consultations, you will participate in a series of assessments to set a baseline, so you and your Certified PoNS™ Trainer can measure your progress throughout PoNS Therapy™. Assessments may evaluate functions related to balance, gait, walking speed, dexterity, strength and mobility, as well as cognitive measures, sleep quality and headache incidence.
Weeks One and Two: In-Clinic Appointments
For the first two weeks of treatment, you will work with your Certified PoNS™ Trainer one-on-one. Your Trainer will design a PoNS Therapy™ program tailored to your individual needs. Therapeutic activities with PoNS™ may include:
- Balance training
- Gait training
- Breathing and awareness
- Other neuro-rehabilitative exercises
Weeks Three to Fourteen: In-Home Training Sessions
During weeks three to fourteen, you will continue with your customized program at home and schedule weekly clinic visits. Your Certified PoNS™ Trainer will monitor your progress and make further adjustments to your program as needed.
Additional progress assessments are completed after weeks four and eight.
Upon completion of the fourteen-week PoNS Therapy™, you will undergo a final, comprehensive assessment and review your overall progress with your Certified PoNS™ Trainer.
