Has anyone tried the Fisher Wallace Stimulator? Was originally for pain/depression/insomnia but recent info says it helps PD symptoms.

This is really interesting...but it's pricey, almost seven hundred dollars although they offer a 60 day money back guarantee. I'd also love to know if anyone has tried it....

If $700 would allow me to live without thinking ahead of every action, to drive again, to turn in bed, to stop walking and talking like a drunk, to not be a slave to meds, it would be a bargain. Today I can barely control my mouse.

That's why I put the question out to the group, to see if anyone else has a yea or nay on it or even heard of it. There are so many gadgets out there and they're not inexpensive.

It seems similar to the tDCS therapy/treatment that is posted about on our RSD forum.

Default mixed comments found

If you do a search on this, the comments are mixed....although you have to take comments from people who have not actually bought or used the unit with a grain of salt.

I think this is really interesting, but am confused on the differences between this and the other things mentioned on this thread. Can anyone readily explain in layman's terms the difference between this unit and the things JoMar mentioned above?
