Star Trek Headband Or Migraine Preventing Device?

At first glance one might mistake this product for a prop from a sci-fi movie and rightfully so, but this futuristic looking tiara is actually an electrical stimulation device that aids in the prevention of migraines. This device has just been approved by the FDA for use in the United States and if it succeeds then it could possibly spread worldwide.

For those of you who have ever had a migraine or suffer from them regularly then this might be something worth looking into. Supposedly wearing the device for just 20 minutes a day will prevent migraines from occurring, which is pretty damn amazing. Wish I had this thing when I had those migraines!

The space-age looking tiara called Cefaly is a battery-powered device invented by Belgian company STX-Med or Cefaly Technology, which was founded in 2004 by two bio-engineering experts and it works by delivering transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation or TENS to the trigeminal nerve. Apparently when using the device the user will feel a tingling sensation. Cefaly is only to be used by those 18 and older and for no longer than 20 minutes a day.

Wonder how well it works!
