Fisher Wallace Stimulator
The Fisher Wallace Stimulator helps treat insomnia by “stimulating the brain to produce serotonin and other neurochemicals required for healthy sleep,” according to its website. The device needs to be used for 20 minutes at a time, right before bed. Users can engage in some other activities while using the stimulator.
The device, which has FDA clearance for depression, insomnia, anxiety and pain, will give results in as little as the first week. To use it, an individual places two moistened applicators on either side of their head, near the temples, and secures them in place with a headband, which is included. Users can then determine which level, of the four available, they will use, increasing as necessary. It beeps at the end of the session, indicating that it can be removed. Fisher Wallace recommends using the device twice daily for thirty days for optimal results, and thereafter for maintenance, several times a week.
The Fisher Waller Stimulator requires a prescription from a healthcare provider in the United States and retails for $599.
