S3: Episode 4 - Kelly Roman | Mental Health and Wearable Tech
Updated: Feb 1
Many people today suffer from depression, anxiety, PTSD, sleep issues, inability to focus, and many other maladies of the mind. There are all kinds of treatments available to people who have these issues. From varying kinds of therapy all the way to heavy doses of medications. There is another option, though.
Kelly Roman, the Co-Founder and CEO of Fisher Wallace, is here to tell us about the product that his company has been developing since 2009. They have made a wearable technology that delivers low-level electrical current into the brain. This neurostimulation device targets the areas of the brain that cause anxiety and depression. As a result the brain releases serotonin and other neurotransmitters, and causes a change that helps to relieve these issues. This device just finished it’s second round of clinical trials, and is well on its way to being widely used.
We sit down to have a conversation with Mr. Roman, and he tells us about the neurostimulation device, what it does, how it works, how it can improve focus and memory as well as helping to alleviate depression and anxiety. Mr. Roman also lets us in on the reason why he is so passionate about the device, and tells us about the many people it has helped already.
Please enjoy learning about this incredible device. I know I did. Thank you, Mr. Roman, for taking the time to have a conversation with us, and we hope that you are able to continue helping people with this technology.
