You must be talking about the Gammacore device. It's a non-invasive hand held stimulator which emits a measured amount of energy through the vagus nerve. We've had considerable success with it since it's inception. Enter 'gammacore' into the search engine (top right) to have a look at past posts on the subject. It does come with instructions,so read them carefully before use and take advice from an expert to get the best effect which,in this case,would be Catherine Gillies (specialist nurse) or Dt Alok Tyagi.
