What NeuRx DPS® Patients Are Saying

I use the DPS 8-12 hours per night with my Trilogy device 4-6 hours per night. The DPS is very easy to operate. I would recommend the Diaphragm Pacing System to any ALS patient that is a candidate.- Michael Gaither
This system is opening up a new world to me. Without having tubes on my chest and not hearing the constant noise from the ventilator, I feel much more like a person and less like a machine. I am looking forward to the changing seasons and smelling the new plants in spring and outdoor grills in summer.- Joel Vander Molen
Living with ALS is difficult so when something helps it is such an amazing feeling. Since having the diaphragm pacer I feel my breathing has improved and I feel better. Not only this, even more it also offers hope to stay off the trach longer.- Martha Bryant
The competent and compassionate service that I have received from this company is exemplary. Any time that I have a question or a concern, one of Synapse's representatives is always readily available to assist me, even if that means driving to Harrisburg to meet with me. Thank you, Synapse, for giving me my life back.- Nicholas Essis
