Could These Devices Someday Replace Drugs? Alpha-Stim M

Alpha-Stim M

The Alpha-Stim M, made by Electromedical Products International, uses a current passed between two electrodes to noninvasively provide relief from pain, anxiety, depression, and insomnia. The company says it can help users avoid or reduce the need for medications as well as be used safely in conjunction with them. Last year, FDA reclassified devices such as the Alpha-Stim M that provide cranial electrotherapy stimulation from Class III to Class II medical devices.
