DC-STIMULATOR MOBILE - transcranial electrical stimulation for use in clinical routines
The DC-STIMULATOR MOBILE is a clinical simulator designed to be used in clinics and practices. Using this device, doctors and psychologists can apply transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) using weak currents up to 2mA over 15-30 minutes.
tDCS represents part of interventional neurophysiology; the electrical charges and densities administered during tDCS lie far below the threshold for releasing a stimulus and have a modular effect on existing neuronal elements.
Depending on the duration, used current, current density and frequency, the stimulation is effective on inhibiting or activating cortical activity.
The DC-STIMULATOR MOBILE is used for transcranial Direct Current Stimulation for symptom relief in depression.
A supporting therapeutic effect of the tDCS has also been reported for craving, pain as well as motor and speech rehabilitation after stroke.
The DC-STIMULATOR MOBILE unifies easy usage with exceptional patient safety.
The path of the electrical current is constantly monitored by both hardware and software. The continuous monitoring of electrode impedance allows insufficient skin contact to be detected, leading to the stimulation being automatically cut off. Injuries to the patient are thus reliably avoided. For the first time, the DC-STIMULATOR MOBILE makes it possible to analyse the stimulation data recorded by the device after a therapy session.
The DC-STIMULATOR MOBILE is delivered as a so-called Set of Devices (SOD). The basic package (SOD BASIC) can be supplemented as needed for different therapy situations.
