Cefaly works using an electrode that is applied to the forehead. Each electrode can be used up to 20 times (a dozen times for Blue Gel electrodes).
It is extremely important to cleanse and degrease the skin on the forehead so the electrode will effectively stick to the skin. The skin should be cleansed with soap and water. After use, the electrode should be placed back on its clear plastic backing strip and then stored in its pouch to prevent it from drying out.
The electrodes are sold in sets of 3 and cost € 19 all taxes incl. for regular electrodes, € 24 all taxes incl. for Blue Gel electrodes.
Occipital electrode: “Arnold kit”
Used with Cefaly, the occipital electrode (or Arnold kit) is exclusively indicated for occipital neuralgia-type pain (Arnold neuralgia) and for posterior tension headaches of cervical origin.
The Arnold kit is available to buy at € 89 all taxes incl. and comes with 2 bottles of gel. Recommended number of uses for Arnold kit is 100 sessions.
