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.

Idealizado e fabricado por uma equipe multidisciplinar, incluindo médicos e engenheiros, o Estimulador Fisher Wallace® utiliza formas de ondas patenteadas para estimular o cérebro de maneira suave, aumentando a produção da serotonina e de outros neuro-químicos responsáveis pela regulação do humor e sono.

Além disso, o equipamento ajuda o cérebro a regular o sistema límbico. Utilizado em múltiplos estudos, o equipamento foi aprovado pelo FDA (Food and Drug Adminstration) e sua comercialização é feita nos Estados Unidos desde 1990. No Brasil, o equipamento possui registro na Anvisa e pode ser comercializado para Depressão, Ansiedade, Insônia e Dor Crônica. Diversos estudos científicos foram feitos comprovando a eficácia e segurança do Estimulador Fisher Wallace.
