The Alpha-Stim 100 can be used to treat pain, anxiety, depression, insomnia and related disorders.
International (EPI) has been in business since 1981. EPI developed Alpha-Stim microcurrent technology which is employed in a variety of products. EPI is a
proven leader in the field of electromedicine.
Both the Alpha-Stim 100 and
Alpha-Stim SCS (Stress Control System) treat anxiety,
depression and insomnia. The Alpha-Stim 100 also treats acute, chronic, and postoperative pain and the new
(Personal Pain Manager) is designed as
an alternative to TENS for localized treatment of pain. The primary distinctive feature in a medical device is the waveform, and Alpha-Stim has a uniquely effective waveform. The application of direct electrical
treatment to the brain, along with our treatment protocols for pain also makes the
difference that no other device has been able to emulate. Further, Alpha-Stim technology has been shown to be
far more cost effective than prescription drugs.
Alpha-Stim is very safe. Only one out of 506 people will experience a mild headache, and one out of 910 will have a skin reaction at the electrode site. Usually a minor
self-limiting reddening of the skin. There are no other significant side effects reported in over 40 research studies, or in 22 years of clinical and home use.
There are three ways to prove that a medical product is effective:
professional endorsements. Alpha-Stim has substantial evidence from
all three. There is more research supporting Alpha-Stim than any other therapeutic device and even more than many drugs. Many of the studies were double-blind. This web site contains
annotated abstracts of
Alpha-Stim research, as well as testimonials from doctors, professional sports teams, and patients
and even comments people have written on their warranty cards.
In addition to the prospective research, physicians documented Alpha-Stim technology in a comprehensive retrospective
survey. The degree of significant improvement (of 25% or more) in 500 patients was 91% for pain, 94% for anxiety,
90% for depression, and 79% for insomnia. More than half of the patients exhibited an improvement of 50% or more.
Confirming the physician survey is a
peer-reviewed outcome study published in the April 2001 issue of the American Journal of Pain Management that revealed an
overall significant improvement of 93% in 1,949 pain patients who used Alpha-Stim for a minimum of three weeks. Most of these people failed to get results from previous
therapies or they would never have acquired an Alpha-Stim in the first place. Supported by the double-blind studies, these surveys provide a good overview of
results at a glance.
The Alpha-Stim is also a lot more cost effective than almost any other treatment for pain and stress-related disorders. Once the device is purchased it costs very little to
use. Most drugs cost more than an Alpha-Stim after just a few months which is documented on our
cost containment page. Because of the reduced amount of time it
is used, and the inexpensive felt electrodes used with the probes and ear clip electrodes, the Alpha-Stim 100, Alpha-Stim SCS or the new
Alpha-Stim PPM is even less expensive than the cheapest TENS unit over time.
Products for sale in the USA are sold only to, by
or on the order of licensed health care practitioners. In all other countries, a prescription is not required and the benefits of the technology are freely available in a number of innovative
product offerings. Product information is available on this site in six languages although most of the site is in English.
