Changing the narrative to hope: Maximizing brain health, function and participation following Brain Injury
Intensive Cross Cutting Poster
The symposium will provide details relevant to the current disease and treatment landscapes for patients with chronic balance and gait deficits associated with mmTBI. Program faculty will introduce PoNS™ and discuss noninvasive translingual neurostimulation as a novel treatment option. Data from randomized clinical trials evaluating PoNS™ treatment in addition to physical therapy will be presented to demonstrate that PoNS™ treatment has achieved functional improvements in balance/gait in patients with chronic balance and gait deficits associated with mmTBI. Finally, the opportunities and challenges associated with PoNS treatment will be discussed during an interactive audience and faculty panel.
