My daughter has a young male friend, 23 years of age, Todd who had an automobile accident. It had caused severe trauma to his brain in the frontal lobe; his shoulder blade was broken, his leg was broken with bone protruding through the skin and he had a fractured pelvis. He was in a coma and was in the UAMS trauma unit; he could not even breathe on his own for two weeks!
The doctors told his mother that he could not possibly live past two days; if he did he would be totally paralyzed and he would be a vegetable. She had been given so little hope and she was willing to try anything! I immediately took the Infratonic to the hospital. Since Todd was in so much pain due to his injuries, we placed it on a pillow under the hospital bed with the transducer pointing up under the head area. It stayed on almost constantly.
In less than a week he was out of a “sleeping coma” and into a “walking coma” and started moving his right hand and arm (he had not moved on his own before this). In two weeks, he was moving both arms and legs. In 3-4 weeks, he started moving his right leg; in 6-7 weeks, he could move his toes on his left foot. He had been unable to talk and had a trach, and it was difficult to know if he could understand us. I left the Infratonic with his mother and told her to keep it at least two more weeks.
When I returned in two weeks, his trach had taken out, he was talking and knew almost everyone! However, his mental ability was such that he was a child of 10-12 years. But at least he was alive and was talking and knew us! In less than three months, this young man went from two days to live, total vegetable if he did, unable to move his head or any extremities, to functioning completely on his own physically, and mentally back to a 23-year-old with a wonderful life ahead of him. He was walking with a cane.
