A randomised controlled trial in patients with respiratory muscle weakness due to motor neuron disease of the NeuRx RA/4 diaphragm pacing system (DiPALS)

Motor neuron disease affects approximately two people in every 100,000 in the UK. It weakens the diaphragm, making it difficult for sufferers to breathe. This study aims to find out whether adding diaphragm pacing (a new technique to increase diaphragm contraction strength) to standard non-invasive ventilation care (a face mask attached to a machine that helps patients to breathe more effectively) can offer added benefits such as improving life quality and expectancy.
