What is Cefaly?
Cefaly is an External Trigeminal Nerve Stimulation device (e-TNS) for migraine treatment. A self-adhesive electrode is placed on the forehead and the Cefaly device is magnetically connected to this electrode. Precise micro-impulses are then sent through the electrode to the upper branch of the trigeminal nerve to either relieve the headache pain during a migraine attack (Acute setting) or to prevent future migraine attacks (Prevent setting).
Who is Cefaly for?
Cefaly is intended for patients who suffer from migraine -- with or without aura.
The Acute setting is indicated for the acute treatment of migraine attacks.
The Prevent setting is indicated for migraineurs who have three or more migraine attacks per month and need a preventive migraine treatment to reduce the frequency of episodes.
