Now, headband that could make migraines history
Washington: The US Food and Drug Administration has approved a nerve-stimulating headband as the first medical device to prevent migraine headaches.
Agency officials said that the device provides a new option for patients who cannot tolerate migraine medications.
The Cefaly device, manufactured by Cephaly Technology of Belgium, is a battery-powered plastic band worn across the forehead. Using an adhesive electrode, the band emits a low electrical current to stimulate nerves associated with migraine pain, CBS News reported.
Users may feel a tingling sensation on the skin where the electrode is applied. The device is designed to be used no more than 20 minutes a day by patients 18 years and older.
