From the Cefaly website:
‘Cefaly is a new, clinically proven treatment option that reduces frequency and intensity of migraine and headaches without the use of medication and with no side effects.
Electrotherapy has been successful in treating migraine and headaches for decades, however machines were bulky and expensive, they could only be used by a health care professional or invasive surgery was required. Cefaly’s technology has successfully found a pain free way to target and excite the trigeminal nerve (which is where migraine/headaches start) in order to increase the trigger threshold for migraine/headache. Cefaly has also helped suffers decrease their oral medications by 75%. No side effects. No Pills to take. Easy to use device.’

ElectroCore (Aust) Pty Ltd also have a new product for the treatment of migraine and headache.
From the ElectroCore website:
“Recently the gammaCore device was included on the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG) for headache treatment. The gammaCore provides an effective, non-invasive treatment for migraines, cluster and medication overuse headaches.
The gammaCore therapy is administered with a non-invasive hand held device that produces a mild electrical signal that is transmitted to the vagus nerve through the skin.
It can easily be incorporated into your daily routine and only needs to be used for a few minutes in the morning and night for prevention of headaches.
Being a medically authorised treatment, you and your doctor will determine if the gammaCore therapy is a suitable treatment option for treating your headaches. The gammaCore is not an over-the-counter device and is not available other than through your doctor. If you wish to order a device, an authorisation form needs to be completed and then signed by your physician. The device will be shipped to you directly or to your doctor’s office.”
