Innovative Neurological Devices received FDA market clearance for the Cervella™ Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulator for the treatment of anxiety, depression, and insomnia.
“Anxiety, insomnia, and depression are disorders affecting at least 20% of adult population. Furthermore, recent research brought to light that 70% of teenagers list anxiety and depression as the main problem affecting the younger population. For many years, CES devices have been clinically validated as a safe and effective alternative to drug-based therapies without the side-effects that often exist with the use of antidepressants,” commented Mr. Bart Waclawik, President and CEO of Innovative Neurological Devices. “We hope that by incorporating treatment electrodes into a noise-cancelling headset, patient compliance will significantly increase and, consequently, treatment outcomes will improve. Also, by making the Cervella device appear indistinguishable from ordinary over-ear headphones, patients will have the freedom to use the device in anxiety-inducing situations without curious looks from onlookers. Last but not least, the automated data aggregation available through the proprietary Cervella app gives a patient an option to easily share treatment data with his or her health provider in order to better manage the treatment plan,” added Mr. Waclawik.
Cervella will be available in the US at the introductory price of $695 and will be launched at the Anxiety and Depression Conference in Chicago, IL on March 28, 2019. A prescription from a licensed healthcare practitioner is required to purchase Cervella.
