The Fisher Wallace Stimulator

The Fisher-Wallace Cranial Stimulator is:
- allowed by the FDA to be marketed for symptom reduction in depression, anxiety, and insomnia—i
- a portable, battery-powered micro-current pulse generator.
- small enough to hold in one hand, and produces three biologically synchronous waveforms: 15,000 Hz, 15 Hz, and 500 Hz.
The two slender electrical cables transmit current through either a small sponge that is moistened before use, or a self-adhesive patch. They are secured in place on the temples with a soft headband. Current flows between the two electrodes when the Fisher-Wallace Cranial Stimulator is turned on. The number of flashing lights on the Stimulator clearly indicates the level of stimulation, which is easily adjusted by the user. The current automatically turns off after 20 minutes. Clear instructions accompany the Fisher-Wallace Cranial Stimulator.

Transcranial electrostimulation (CES or TCES) originally was used in the 1960's to induce sleep; These early devices typically used less than 1.5 mA at 100 Hz. The Liss U.S. Pat. No. 4,627,438 employed higher frequencies modulated by a lower frequency square wave to produce recurring pulse bursts. The repetition frequency of the device of Liss is determined by the modulation frequency; but the pulse bursts are of a uniform amplitude within each repetition cycle. The device of the Liss patent is specifically directed to utilization in conjunction with the treatment of migraine headaches. The low frequency or modulating signal is asymmetrical, utilizing a 3:1 duty cycle, "on" three-fourths of the time and "off" one fourth of the recurring period. This results in bursts of the high frequency signal separated by the off time when no signal is applied, following the re-application of the bursts of the high frequency signal.
Patient & Doctor Testimonials
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.
– The Wall Street Journal
I have had great success using the device to treat severe, chronic insomnia in patients who are resistant to pharmacotherapy. Also, patients who seek a drug-free alternative to treat insomnia have used the Fisher Wallace Stimulator to reduce or eliminate their dependence on prescription drugs.
– Andres San Martin, M.D.
I have seen very positive results, often within the first two weeks of using the device. Approximately 75% of my patients who have been diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder, major depressive disorder, stress related disorders or insomnia have reported positive changes.
