Once switched on by a remote control it transmits electrical signals, which can bring total relief from the pain within 15 minutes.

"If this device continues to work, it would be wonderful," the Daily Express quoted Headache specialist Professor Rigmor Jensen, who led the Danish research, as saying.

Migraines hit the British economy hard, with hundreds of thousands either having to take time off sick or being unable to function effectively if they do make it into work.
