Emerging Noninvasive Neurostimulation Technologies: CN-NINM and SYMPATOCORECTION


Two emerging noninvasive neurostimulation technologies, based on electrocutaneius stimulation of the tongue (CN-NINM) and the neck (SYMPATOCORRECTION) are presented. Currently, two portable devices were developed and introduced in clinical practice: PoNSTM (portable neurostimulator) and SYMPATOCOR. Both technologies are complement each other and demonstrate perspectives in various applications for purpose of neurorehabilitation and neurological symptoms management in such difficult rehabilitation areas, as traumatic brain injury, stroke, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis and many other neurological disorders.
