  1. Hello
    Does the Ybrain also work to treat bipolar 2 depression ?
    Comparibel to the Fisher Wallace Stimulator ?
    Kind regard

    • Hi Jacqueline. Looking over the Ybrain website http://ybrain.com/en/ I’m seeing only that their device is currently in approved trials for ‘Major Depressive Order’. You can’t currently purchase one of their devices (in the U.S. anyway). Also I believe it uses a different mechanism than the Fisher Wallace Stimulator. Best, John.
