ROCKAWAY, N.J., March 21, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- electroCore, Inc. (the “Company”), (NASDAQ: ECOR), a commercial-stage bioelectronic medicine and wellness company, today announced the results of a TruvagaTM focus group study conducted earlier this year. Based on a 30-day in-home use test by an independent third-party research firm, the Truvaga product helped its users improve stress, anxiety, sleep, energy, and mood.
In the in-home focus group study, 34 participants were instructed to use the Truvaga product twice a day for 30 days to assess the product's benefits and overall user experience. Self-assessment evaluations were reported after 7 and 30 days. After 30 days, users reported the following:
- 94% felt calmer;
- 91% felt their mood improved;
- 88% felt less anxious;
- 85% felt an improvement in stress;
- 82% felt more alert;
- 77% had more energy; and
- 74% felt they sleep better.
“My sleep was horrible before using this device as was my stress and anxiety,” said Diane G. a study participant. “To be honest, I really didn't think a device that I use on my neck would change either of those problems. Well, I am wrong and a little embarrassed because my sleep has not been this good in 20 years. I am finding my stress to be very minimal as well and so are others in my everyday life. My sleep is such a healthy part of my life now and I am sleeping all night, waking easily and well rested. I’m completely blown away by how much this device has turned my life completely around by using it just twice a day.”
After the study was completed, 86% of users said they will continue to use the product for ongoing overall wellness benefits.
“I am thrilled about the initial launch of our wellness product, Truvaga,” stated Michael Mansfield, VP, Marketing at electroCore. “The initial response and testimonials we received are a reminder of the benefits that can be realized by using vagus nerve stimulation and I look forward to building the Truvaga brand during 2023 through ecommerce and affiliate channels.”
Results of the focus group study can be found on our website, www.truvaga.com.
