A Prospective, Single Arm, Open Label Study of the Safety and Efficacy of Nerivio™ for the Acute Treatment of New Daily Headache Persistence (NDHP) in Adolescents

Status: Recruiting
Location: See location...
Intervention Type: Device
Study Type: Interventional
Study Phase: Not Applicable

The goal of this study is to examine the effects of the Remote Electrical Neuromodulation (REN) device on adolescents ages 12-17 who have been diagnosed with New Daily Persistent Headache (NDPH). Pediatric patients with a diagnosis of new daily persistent headache are typically resistant to standard pharmacologic treatments and often experience systemic side effects related to medications; thus, REN offers the potential for an exciting new treatment option for patients with refractory headache disorders. The device delivers transcutaneous electrical stimulation to the upper arm to induce conditioned pain modulation (CPM) that activates a descending endogenous analgesic mechanism. Ultimately, the investigators hope to gain insights into the safety and efficacy of Nerivio™ for the acute treatment of NDPH in adolescents. The goal of this study is to demonstrate headache relief without unexpected device-related adverse effects
