[Abstract] Cranial nerve non-invasive neuromodulation improves gait and balance in stroke survivors: A pilot randomised controlled trial

First page of article

Cranial nerve non-invasive neuromodulation (CN-NINM) is delivered using a Portable Neuromodulation Stimulation (PoNS™) device that stimulates two cranial nerve nuclei (trigeminal and facial nerve nuclei) using electrodes embedded in a mouthpiece that rests on the tongue. Danilov and colleagues reported that prolonged and repetitive (20 minutes or more) tongue stimulation coupled with specific training of balance and gait can initiate long-lasting neuronal reorganization that can be measured in participants’ behaviour [1].
