About Palo Alto Health Sciences, Inc. and Freespira
Palo Alto Health Sciences, Inc. is a privately held Silicon Valley company at the forefront of revolutionizing behavioral healthcare with evidence-based, non-invasive, drug-free solutions. The Company's first product, Freespira, is an FDA-cleared treatment for individuals suffering from panic attacks and other symptoms of panic. In the United States, over 6.7 million adults annually suffer from Panic Disorder; panic attacks affect a total of 27 million adults in the U.S. every year and are a common component of other anxiety disorders. Patients with panic disorder often chronically hyperventilate, even when not experiencing a panic attack, and this abnormal breathing pattern has been shown to exacerbate attacks. Freespira works by training the patient to stabilize their respiration rate and reduce hyperventilation. Over the course of treatment, Freespira eliminates or reduces the symptoms of panic and panic attacks. Freespira is commercially available throughout the U.S. and therapists are successfully treating patients with outstanding results, even in the most severe cases.
