    @ScottTriGuy - This is pretty interesting stuff. I came across it when reading The Brain's Way of Healing by Norman Doidge - he talked about the research at the University of Wisconsin and the Pons device. Also it's been tested on brain injury patients with some good results: https://tcnl.bme.wisc.edu/

    Indeed. So much so I bought some stock: http://www.heliusmedical.com/

    I'm curiously hopeful it will benefit m.e. patients. AFAIK, the PoNS will be available first in Canada, in summer 2016. Hopefully for direct consumer purchase.

    @ScottTriGuy - I thought the same thing, about possible benefit to ME patients. Hopefully a good investment for you! :nerd:

    Do not know anything new about the Canadian market, but it sounds like they hope its available in the US next Feb-ish:

    "A year from now, I would hope that we will have completed our registrational clinical trials and the FDA will have cleared the device, so that our PoNS device will be commercially available."
