Israeli Device Brings Relief To Migraine Sufferers

Israeli startup Theranica has developed a medical device for the treatment of acute migraine. Nerivio, as it is called, is worn on the upper arm and uses smartphone-controlled electronic pulses to stimulate the body's neural pathway at the onset of a migraine. “Migraine is a debilitating disease that demands intervention”, said Alon Ironi, CEO of Theranica. "Utilizing the brain's native conditioned pain modulation response has been shown to offer an affordable, drug-free, non-invasive alternative to drug-based medications".  Nerivio is FDA approved and is available by prescription in the USA. It will be offered in Israel in April 2020, the firm said. (VFI News)
