How It Works
The Fisher Wallace Stimulator® is a brain stimulation medical device that is cleared by the FDA for the treatment of depression, anxiety and insomnia. It works by stimulating serotonin production, alpha wave production and the default mode network while lowering cortisol, as proven in multiple published studies. The device is used for 20 minutes per treatment session: once during the day to treat depression or anxiety, and/or two hours before bedtime to treat insomnia.
Quick Start Guide
1. Open the battery cover and insert two AA batteries.
2. Plug the wires into the device and snap the electrodes to the other end of the wires.
3. Submerge the sponge electrodes under running water until wet. Squeeze out the excess water.
4. Put on the velcro headband and adjust the fit.
5. Slide each sponge electrode beneath the headband, above your sideburns, so that the bottom of each electrode is slightly higher than the top of your ear.
6. Turn on the device by rotating the dial counter-clockwise until two yellow level lights flash (level 2). You may feel a slight tingling at the electrode sites. Most patients start feeling more relaxed within minutes as the device modulates the brain wave state and stimulates neurochemical production.
7. Engage in quiet activities such as reading, watching TV or meditation during the 20-minute stimulation session.
8. After 20 minutes, the device will shut off automatically (with a beep).
