Before searching the technology listing, check out the commentary about neurotech and ALS. This quick and simple read can be found here.


There are a variety of applications which are listed below. Prior to considering any new therapy, treatment, or device, a proper evaluation should be conducted by a knowledgeable medical professional. There are health, medical and financial risks. Out-of-pocket costs and available insurance coverage for any treatment must be considered prior to starting a protocol. Finally, this is an evolving field of science and technology development this page is updated on a periodic basis. 

Also, it is vital to understand that results and applications will vary depending on symptom and function limitations related to the disease. This is mainly due to long-term periods of lower motor neuron degeneration and flaccid paralysis. If you find something of interest, please contact the vendor directly to find a trained professional in your area.
