Soterix Medical tDCS-LTE™ Therapy System is a unique non-invasive medical treatment that uses mild adaptive electrical signals to stimulate the brain. It is a non-surgical, non-sedation, seizure- risk free, alternative to techniques like Vagus Nerve Stimulation, Electroconvulsive Therapy and repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation. It is a non-drug alternative with minimal side-effects and meaningful improvement in quality of life.
Soterix Medical tDCS-LTE™ System is made possible through two complementary medical technology innovations. The first is the use of OLE system for optimized delivery of energy to the DLPFC, the brain target activated for improved mood. The result is enhanced efficacy and outcomes. The second is the use of LTE technology to minimize overall power delivery to enhance tolerability. The result is a comfortable and reliable device.

Soterix Medical’s Depression tDCS-LTE uses unique OLE montage for optimized electrode placement and proprietary LTE technology for tolerability and intelligent adaptive power management.
The tDCS-LTE™ system was developed by leading doctors across the world. While some clinical trials have shown it to be safe and effective in treating Depression, additional on-going trials will further help in providing evidence of its efficacy.
tDCS-LTE™ is painless and you can engage in other activities during the treatment. Each treatment session lasts around 20 minutes. Usually patients visit the doctor 3-5 times per week for a session. You can expect to start feeling better after only a few sessions. Maximum benefit may take several weeks. If after stopping therapy your symptoms return, you can return to your doctor for maintenance sessions.
Treatment of depression with tDCS-LTE™ is easy. Wires connect the device to electrode patches that are positioned on the patient's head. A special cap or a strap ensures the patches are positioned at the correct location. Side effects are very mild and include skin redness and some itching and tingling that stops right after the session. After the session you can go about your regular activities at home and at work.
tDCS-LTE™ therapy works by delivering a low intensity electrical current to part of the brain found to be hypoactive when suffering from major depression. The treatment is not surgical and drug free. For patients this means less complications and less risk. If you are suffering from Depression see your doctor about Soterix Medical tDCS-LTE™ treatment.
The tDCS-LTE™ therapy is now approved in select countries for the treatment of Major Depression. If you are interested in trying tDCS-LTE™ for yourself or a loved one, please contact us online and a Soterix Medical representative will be in touch with you.
