gammaCoreTM (nVNS) is the first non-invasive, hand-held medical therapy applied at the neck as an adjunctive therapy to treat migraine and cluster headache. It uses mild electrical stimulation to the vagus nerve that passes through the skin.
When placed on a patient’s neck over the vagus nerve, gammaCore stimulates the nerve’s afferent fibers which may lead to a reduction of pains in patients.
Designed as a portable, easy-to-use technology, gammaCore can be self-administrated by patients, as needed, without the potential side effects associated with commonly prescribed drugs.
gammaCore (nVNS) is FDA approved in the United States for a series of indications associated with cluster headaches and migraines both in adults and adolescents. gammaCore (nVNS) is also CE-marked in the European Union for the acute and/or prophylactic treatment of primary headache and Medication Overuse Headache in adults, as well as epilepsy, anxiety and depression, gastric motility disorders and reactive airways disease.
