HDCstim is the unique Direct Current stimulator that guarantees patient’s safety and treatment repeatability. Consists of the HDCstim (stimulator device), HDCprog (programmer), HDCel (electrodes kit) and accessories.
What is tDCS?
Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) involves applying weak electrical currents to the head, to generate an electric field which modulates the activity of neurons. tDCS is known to selectively modulate neuronal excitability & can be used in conjunction with fMRI, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) or centrally acting drugs.
tDCS HDCkit Complete System
HDCkit is a cost effective modular system for Direct Current (DC) stimulation, designed specifically for both research & clinical use. It consists of a stimulator (HDCstim), a programmer (HDCprog) & a set of electrodes (HDcel) which also has the option of a headcap.
HDCstim is the unique direct current stimulator that guarantees patient’s safety & treatment repeatability. HDCstim allows treatment programming by authorised medical personnel only through HDCprog or WebBioBank.
The HDCstim is a battery supplied, programmable stimulator that is used to administer direct current (DC) stimulation. Designed for home use by a patient or subject, the HDCstim is only pre-programmable with a HDCprog and will not deviate from the treatment or protocol chosen by the researcher or clinician.
HDCprog is the healthcare professionals device for programming stimulation cycles & for monitoring results. It can be connected to any HDCstim once provided the required personal access code. The stimulation settings are stored in the HDCstim linked to the authorised prescriber.
The HDCprog is an easy to use touchscreen LCD programmer that, when connected to HDCstim allows a clinician or researcher to set tDCS treatments or protocols for their patients or subjects. By using the HDCprog, it is possible to define an entire treatment or application by setting the number of stimulations (maximum 99), the intensity (up to 1.5mA per channel), the duration (maximum 20 min) and the minimum interval betwenn two consecutive simulations (max 1168 hours).
HDCel is a set of standard tDCS electrodes enabling both intra & extra cephalic stimulation for the administration of DC stimulation from the HDCstim. HDCel consists of a set of electrodes made from plant cellulose & conductive silicone, and are manufactured to ensure biocompatibility with the skin. Electrodes are safely connected to HDCstim through cables provided, the connections of which are designed to minimise the risk of incorrect set up by the patient or subject.
The stimulator (HDCstim) and the programmer (HDCprog) are two separate units, minimising the risk of any misuse of the stimulator by the patient or subject, ensuring that applications of treatments are administered correctly everytime. The researcher or clinician using the HDCkit remains in complete control of how stimulations are administered. The researcher or clinician requires only one HDCprog to programme any number of stimulators (HDCstim).
Researchers or clinicians can order additional HDCstims as & when required for studies or treatments The HDCstim unit is portable, battery operated & designed for home use by a subject or patient. The basic HDCkit package contains everything required to administer tDCS. The HDCkit is fully programmable & can run any number of applications or treatments within it’s parameters.
MindCap is designed for safe and repeatable tDCS treatment at home as an alternative to standard HDCel. MindCap can be configured with the correct and personalized electrode placement avoiding any patient’s mistake during self administration.
Innovative “three lines of force structure” for optimal electrode contact Intra-cephalic or extra-cephalic reference Full control of electrode positioning for safe home use according to the International 10–20 System.
Any model includes one pre-wired Cap, Armband and Electrode set.
