Today the FDA announced their ruling on an innovative and new device that many people have been eagerly awaiting. The Cefaly is essentially a headband that can be worn to prevent migraines from developing, which would bring a significant amount of relief to the millions of people that suffer from regular migraines. The way it operates is very simple too, a self adhesive electrode sticks to the user’s forehead and sends well timed and directed electric pulses to control the onset of a migraine.
Currently the device is not available in the United States, but thanks to the FDA’s approval it will likely soon become much more available. The Cefaly is still going to remain a prescription only device, so unless your doctor says you need it you’re not going to be able to get one. The device is also only supposed to be worn for a maximum of 20 minutes per day but many doctors and researchers say that is far and beyond enough time given just how effective it is. This is absolutely great news for the millions of migraine sufferers, hopefully it’ll hit shelves soon and start making people feel a whole lot better.
