Device Consideration Process
Getting comfortable with a new technology is a learning process for every customer. Below is a simple guide, and if you have any questions, please contact us via chat, email or phone.
How It Feels
Most patients do not feel the stimulation, while others may feel a slight tingling beneath the electrodes. Typically, patients feel more relaxed during the first 10 minutes of stimulation. In addition to feeling better, many patients will also experience increased focus and concentration after using the device.
Treating Depression & Anxiety
For best results, use the Fisher Wallace Stimulator® twice a day for 20 minutes (once in the morning and once in the afternoon or evening). Most patients experience a reduction in symptoms within the first two weeks of twice-daily use. Once symptoms are eliminated, patients may use the device on an "as needed" basis.
To help get to sleep and stay asleep, use the Fisher Wallace Stimulator® for 20 minutes before going to bed. The device may be used as an alternative to sleep medication but is not a sedative - instead, patients wake up refreshed.
Treating Chronic Pain
The Fisher Wallace Stimulator® may be used on the body to treat chronic pain, including fibromyalgia related pain, back pain, arthritis and other forms of chronic pain. Each device comes with velcro straps to apply the electrodes to the body and a chronic pain instruction manual. The device is also approved by Health Canada to treat chronic migraines (prophylactically, not during a migraine episode).
