Anxiety Treatment Devices are devices which are used to deliver electrical signals to the brain for the treatment of anxiety, depression, trauma etc. The Cranial electrotherapy stimulation is a neurostimulation therapy, used in the treatment of anxiety. In this therapy, a cell phone sized device delivers a mild form of electric stimulation pulses to the brain, for the treatment of anxiety, depression, and insomnia. The electrodes are placed on the earlobes for the transmission of electrical signals to the brain. The alpha-stim cranial electrotherapy stimulation device is used to deliver a mild microcurrent, through small chips which are worn on the ear lobes. The microcurrent is very mild and is not felt by the patient.
Another device, which is used to treat the anxiety disorder is Fisher Wallace stimulator, which is one of the FDA cleared anxiety treatment devices. Fisher Wallace stimulator stimulates serotonin production and alpha waves production. Most of the patients get relief from the anxiety symptoms, by using this device.
The growing incidence of anxiety and depression is the major factor contributing to the growth of anxiety treatment devices market. Increasing healthcare awareness is another important factor driving the growth of anxiety treatment devices market. High adoption of poor lifestyle habits and lack of physical activities, is expected to increase the stress, which can contribute towards the growth of anxiety treatment devices market. An increasing geriatric population can increase the growth of the anxiety treatment devices market, as they are more prone to anxiety, depression, and phobias. Other factors, such as the growing number of mental hospitals, technological advancement, increasing stress due to hectic routine etc., can contribute to the overall growth of anxiety treatment devices market.
