Meet Alon

In Hebrew, Alon means "oak." Indeed, Alon Kaplan is a force of nature.

More than a decade ago, he had a massive stroke, which left him in a vegetative state. With rehabilitation equipment of his own design, he taught himself to walk, talk, and live a full life again. He founded AlonTree to share his designs with the world.

Consider the Possible

Alon and his team create equipment with neuroplasticity in mind. Healthy brain tissue can be taught to do the things once controlled by damaged brain cells.

The brain and the body can heal themselves given the right encouragement, the right exercise, and the right equipment.

Work & Play

Our equipment is designed to be fun and functional. Rehabilitation is hard work, but it doesn't always have to be grueling. Who says work can't be fun?

The artists on our design team know comfort, beauty, and playfulness are key to creating products you'll enjoy using for your stroke recovery.

One-Handed Tool: Your Body & Your Mind

By Alon Kaplan | June 2, 2016 | 0 Comments

AlonTree products use your inherent body as a tool to “fix” your affected muscle groups. Building tension on AlonTree products can tamper with your normal muscle groups. Then you can use your AlonTree products and your affected muscle groups and ligaments. You don’t have to get a therapist or, a family member to ‘install’ our…

By Alon Kaplan | June 2, 2016 | 0 Comments

My superior longitudinal fasciculus in my left brain had this trouble: it couldn’t function because my blood clot exploded right in its face. Imagine this: a grenade going boom in a bunker. My superior longitudinal fasciculus was the superhighway of my working memories, my short term memories, my entire language system, my grammatical system, my…

My Right Hand is Higher Than Before!

Initially, my hand was numb.   Now, I hold my right hand in a yoga standing warrior pose higher everyday.  Yesterday was Nov 11, 2014, my right hand was reaching higher than my golding locks of my beautifully hair.  My hand was pole straight.  Before, say August 2013, I understood that my left hand was…

And, it’s Gettin’ Better All the Time!

By Alon Kaplan | June 7, 2016 | 0 Comments

I thought you will intrigue by my orally sentence structure. Last December, I printed out the alphabet suffix pages. Wherever I sit down for breakfast, I usually take three or six big words. I study them by orally saying them 3 times with my SpeakIt! or, not. It’s changed my ability to connect my thoughts…

Karmic Laws

By Alon Kaplan | August 18, 2016 | 0 Comments

I thought that that the karmic laws were holier-than-thou attitude. I loathed the racist Church Ladies and the “sainted”‘politicians who would bad-mouth their opponents. And, I was holier-than-thou in terms of my religious, physically strength and intellectual prowess. I lay there in the hospital bed and my blood clot stripped myself of everything. And, I…

Before and After My Stroke

By Alon Kaplan | February 14, 2017 | 0 Comments

Before I had the stroke, I cleaned, I gardened, I cooked and I did the laundry. I played with my daughters, I nursed them back to health, took them to school, picked them up from school (well, my ex-wife decided to go to chiropractor and she picked them up). I was the assistant director for my…

Six years ago, I had a car accident. My seat belt ruptured my artery. And a blood clot went up the artery into my brain. A couple of months after that, I had a stroke. The doctors put me in a medical coma. When I came out of the coma I couldn’t remember my name.…

And, you said, “What? I am NOT an angel.” “But, you are!” “No,” you said, unsure of what I’m saying to you. “Look at the wings!” I said. “What do you mean by ‘wings’?” you said, taking backwards steps. “Those wings that are growing from upper back,” I said gesturing to your feathery wings. “You…
