The Fisher Wallace Stimulator® is cleared by the FDA to treat insomnia, depression and anxiety and has been proven to be safe and effective in multiple published studies. In a 392-subject study performed at one of the nation's largest drug rehab facilities (Phoenix House) in 2009, the device successfully improved sleep quality among recovering heroin and cocaine addicts and improved 90-day treatment retention rate by 50%.
The Fisher Wallace Stimulator® treats insomnia by stimulating the brain to produce serotonin and melatonin while reducing cortisol (the stress hormone) and calming the brain's Default Mode Network. The device is effective in treating the following types of insomnia:
- Chronic Insomnia: Difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep three or more nights per week.
- Onset Insomnia: Difficulty falling asleep at the beginning of the night.
- Comorbid Insomnia: Insomnia that occurs in conjunction with depression or anxiety.
- Maintenance Insomnia: Difficulty staying asleep through the night (waking up often or waking up too early).
- Acute Insomnia: Temporary difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep as the result of traveling or a life event.
Easy to Use
The device is extremely easy to use and the stimulation feels pleasant during the 20-minute treatment session, often causing the patient to feel immediately relaxed. To treat insomnia, patients use the device for 20 minutes before bedtime. If you do not suffer from insomnia and only use the device to treat depression or anxiety, the device will not make you drowsy.
Similar to how pharmaceutical drugs must be FDA-Approved to enter the market, medical devices must be FDA-Cleared. The Fisher Wallace Stimulator® is FDA-Cleared for the treatment of insomnia, anxiety and depression. It also has separate FDA clearance to treat pain on the body. The only patients who are not qualified to use the device are those with implanted medical devices, such as a pacemaker or vagus nerve stimulator. Watch the video in the How It Works section (below) to see how easy it is to use.

Doctor & Patient Testimonials
A Real Patient: Logan
Does it work? Columbia University psychiatrist Richard P. Brown says he has used the device with 400 severely depressed patients and that more than 70% find relief -- about twice the rate of anti-depressants. *

Treat Symptoms with Advanced Technology
Designed collaboratively by world-class engineers and doctors, the Fisher Wallace Stimulator® uses patented waveforms to gently stimulate the brain to produce serotonin and other neurochemicals responsible for healthy mood and sleep. Unlike antidepressant medication that inhibits neuronal receptors from absorbing serotonin, the Fisher Wallace Stimulator® enables the brain to produce serotonin naturally while improving the brain's ability to regulate the limbic system. Proven in multiple published studies, the device is cleared by the FDA to treat depression, anxiety and insomnia, as well as chronic pain (such as fibromyalgia) when used on the body. Watch the video to learn how easy it is to use.
