The precise specifications of a therapeutic medical device waveform is analogous to the chemical composition of a pharmaceutical. The Alpha-Stim CES device generates a unique patented waveform that no other device can emulate. The highly refined and rigorously tested waveform transmits microcurrents via patented earclip electrodes for the AID device (which treats anxiety, depression, and insomnia), and via either handheld or self-adhesive electrodes placed on the body at the pain site for the M device.
Well-constructed scientific surveys, by both doctors and patients, consistently find that 9 out of 10 people who use Alpha-Stim as a solution for their mental health or pain get significant relief. More often than not, results are experienced from the very first treatment. These large effect sizes are supported by over 100 completed, independent research studies and published reports, many of which were double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trials (RCTs) to ensure clinically validated results.
That’s why over 200 US Department of Defense (DOD) practitioners and over 92 Veterans Administration (VA) hospitals use Alpha-Stim with military personnel. In fact, both the US military and VA have published RCTs on Alpha-Stim and are continuing to use and research it. Side effects are mild and self-limiting, primarily consisting of headaches (0.20%) and skin irritation (0.11%) at the electrode site. In over 39 years of use, there has never been a significant lasting side effect.
