ALS



VOCSN & ALS

"To the people who helped develop VOCSN and to everyone getting it out there, I can't thank you enough! You have changed the fight against ALS and I know you will not stop now. This disease destroys people. It slowly robs you of everything you have. But what you are doing here is giving people hope to remain active while getting the best equipment in one machine. You have given me new hope that amazing technology like VOCSN will keep me living with ALS, not dying from it. I still have many things I want to accomplish and VOCSN is going to be there coming along for the ride."

Pat Quinn, Founder of Quinn 4 the Win and Co-Founder of the Ice Bucket Challenge – Yonkers, NY

Why We Created VOCSN

Inspired by patients and caregivers

Ventec’s founder, Doug DeVries, was inspired to create VOCSN after his father elected not to use mechanical ventilation following his ALS diagnosis.  VOCSN was developed by patients and caregivers to streamline care, extend quality life, and create every day mobility so that no patient would have to make the same decision as Doug’s dad.
