Headband used to treat migraines receives FDA approval

Post image for Headband used to treat migraines receives FDA approval

Cefaly treats migraines through neurostimulation. To use it, an accompanying adhesive electrode is positioned on the forehead, and Cefaly is then connected to it. Cefaly generates precise micro-impulses through the electrode to stimulate the nerve endings of the trigeminal nerve. Cefaly sessions last twenty minutes.

“Cefaly provides an alternative to medication for migraine prevention,” says Christy Foreman, director of the Office of Device Evaluation at the FDA’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health. “This may help patients who cannot tolerate current migraine medications for preventing migraines or treating attacks.”
