Used by over 55,000 patients, the Fisher Wallace Stimulator® is a wearable brain stimulation medical device that is cleared by the FDA to treat depression, anxiety and insomnia. It works by modulating serotonin production, alpha wave production and the default mode network while lowering cortisol, as demonstrated in multiple published studies. The device is used for 20 minutes per treatment session: once during the day to treat depression and/or anxiety, and once before bedtime to treat insomnia (if needed).

In a clinical trial performed at Mount Sinai Beth Israel Hospital and published in 2015, depression patients who used a stock Fisher Wallace Stimulator® experienced durable symptom reduction. This study provided insight into patient care, and informed the recommendation that patients should use the device for at least two weeks before deciding to keep it or return it for a refund.

A 30-Day Trial

Patients may purchase the device out-of-pocket through this website and return it for a refund within 30 days. The device is fully covered by Medicaid in Maine (MaineCare), with broader coverage expected by early 2021.
