Cervella Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulator (CES) is a medical device which delivers small pulses of electrical current through patient’s brain. The stimulator is powered by an internal rechargeable battery which provides a low-level, constant current to the cranium via a pair of conductive electrodes incorporated into earpads of stereo over-ear headphones. The stimulator is controlled via a software application (app) installed on the patient’s smart device (e.g. smartphone). The patient uses the app to adjust the intensity level, frequency, and duration of the treatment. The app also allows the patient to automatically store the treatment history for review by the patient’s healthcare provider.
Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulators transmit small pulses of electric current across patient’s brain via a pair of conductive electrodes placed on patient’s forehead, mastoid or ear lobes. CES devices have been in existence for several decades and are cleared by the FDA for treatment of insomnia, depression and anxiety. They exhibit good efficacy (especially for treatment of anxiety and insomnia) and have no significant contraindications. They present a very good alternative to drug therapies especially for patients that either exhibit low efficacy with drug-based therapies or experience significant side-effects with the drugs (usually SSRIs).
During a treatment session, which typically lasts 30 minutes, patients suffering from anxiety, insomnia, and depression will experience reduction of anxiety immediately post-treatment and improved sleep patterns (insomnia reduction). Longer-term use has been clinically-validated to have a positive effect on reducing patient’s depressive mood.
