Fisher Wallace Device – How it Works – Usage Instructions

Archived Article from 2013 - Transcript of Instructional Video from Chip Fisher - Original Video Since Removed by Publisher

Hi. I’m Chip Fisher, president of Fisher Wallace Laboratories. Our portable medical device is called the Fisher Wallace stimulator and is cleared by the FDA for the treatment of depression, insomnia, anxiety, and pain. It’s called a stimulator because it delivers a general electrical pulse that stimulates the brain to produce serotonin and other neuro-chemicals required for healthy mood and sleep. It’s been proven in multiple published studies and is preferred by doctors at Harvard, NYU, Cornell, and other top institutions. In this video, I’ll show you how to use the device to treat depression, insomnia, and anxiety. You can refer to the instruction manual included with every device regarding the treatment of pain.

The device comes in five parts; the wires, the base unit, the sponge applicators, the headband, and the body band. First, place the base unit in your hand and open the battery compartment by pushing the locking slide down and lifting the back case off the unit. Following the diagram, place the two AA batteries in the compartment and reclose the case.

Next, open the head set packet and connect the black and red wires to the two white caps. Insert the black wire into the hole with the black dot, and the red wire into the hole with the red dot. The two yellow discs inside the head set caps are sponges that will expand when wet. Take the sponge applicators and dip them thoroughly into a glass of cold water. Squeeze out the excess water and place them on the table. To use the device to treat depression, insomnia, and anxiety, take the head band and place it above your ears with the front of the band resting just above your eyebrows.

The sponge applicators are then placed securely under the head band, just above the side burns. If you have long hair, make sure to place the applicators under the hair, as close to the scalp as possible. There’s a wheel on the right side of the device that should be turned clockwise to the off position. You’ll hear a click when the device turns off.Fisher Wallace Device

To turn the device on, turn the wheel counter clockwise. You’ll hear the click again and you’ll see the green light come on. If you do not see the green light come on, either the batteries are not installed properly, or the batteries have been depleted. Once the device is on, continue to turn the wheel until you see the first yellow light come on. This is yellow light number one. The yellow lights will only come on if the device is successfully conducting. If you have too much hair in the way or if the sponges are not wet enough, the yellow lights will not come on.

Yellow light number two is the setting we recommend starting with to treat depression, insomnia, and anxiety. If you do not experience results at level two after two weeks, increase the setting to level three or four. If you use the device at level three or four, you may notice some flashing lights in your peripheral vision. This is a normal stimulation of the optic nerve and is perfectly safe. You can use the device while you work, read, relax, or use the computer.

The device will stay on for 20 minutes, after which you will hear an audible beep sound, turning the device off and ending the session. The device should be used on a daily basis, ideally twice a day for at least 30 days before making a decision to keep it or return it for a refund. If the device completely relieves your symptoms, you may start using it on a maintenance basis, two or three times a week.

Our device has been on the market since 1991 and there is no evidence of negative effects from long term use. This is another advance of using our device in comparison to drug therapy. The device may also be used on the body to treat chronic pain, including neuropathy, arthritis, back pain, and other forms of chronic and acute pain.

To store the device, take off the head band and wrap the head set around the base unit. When storing the device in its case, leave the sponges on the outside of the bag so they can dry thoroughly.

The device may be used with or without medication and often starts to relieve symptoms during the first week of use. Some patients require two to four weeks to see results, so don’t be discouraged if results take a bit longer to experience. If you have any questions, our highly trained customer service representatives are available to help on a daily basis. Thanks for considering the Fisher Wallace stimulator. I truly hope it will help you feel better.
