On March 23 CEFALY Technology will join the mission to reduce the global burden of migraine through education and fundraising
NEW YORK, March 18, 2020_ CEFALY, the first device of its kind to receive FDA medical clearance for migraine headaches announced that on March 23rd it will sponsor a full day of the Migraine World Summit, the largest online event of its kind founded by migraine patients for migraine patients.
“We’re excited to once again be involved with this event and relieved that patients anywhere can log on for relevant discussions about their condition from the comfort and safety of home, especially amid the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Jennifer Trainor-McDermott, CEO with CEFALY Technology. CEFALY Technology was among the speakers at the inaugural summit. The event is now in its fifth year and has ballooned to more than 150,000 attendees.
This 2020, patients will hear from renowned experts at organizations such as Stanford, Georgetown and Harvard Universities covering topics including the benefits of mediation on brain elasticity, pediatric indicators of migraine and the potential for genetic testing on migraine. Proceeds help benefit migraine research and support through organizations like American Migraine Foundation, Migraine Research Foundation, Headache Australia and the National Headache Foundation.
“We want people living with migraine to know we are a clinically-proven migraine device that can help prevent a migraine and also help to stop a migraine already in progress.” Since the CEFALY DUAL is a device and not a drug, it may be used as a standalone treatment or as part of an existing regimen. The device is placed on the forehead atop of self-adhesive electrode, where it stimulates and desensitizes the area research identifies as a center for migraine pain, the Trigeminal nerve. In studies, people who used the CEFALY device every day saw a reduction in migraine days and reduced use of migraine medication.
Participation in Migraine World Summit is free and online from March 18-26, 2020, and available to order thereafter. To register, go to MigraineWorldSummit.com.
