Hi,

Just want to remind this device was validated for TBI (Traumatic Brain Injuries), not for MS.
Some studies proved it could help MSers with balance, gait and walking issues.
However, Helius company said more studies would need to be performed before sending a request to FDA.
In other words, it'll take many years before validation.

That means, even when the PoNS is on the market, we won't be able to get it.
I don't think it will be possible to purchase it on the net (medical prescription would be needed I guess).

So, I believe the only way will be to convince our GP or neurologist to help us here...
