This work recognizes innovation in neuromodulation through the Soterix Medical High-Definition tDCS platform currently in clinical trials at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Abhishek Datta summarizes "For 5 years, SMI has been the standard for innovation in neuromodulation, and this award recognizes the breakthrough of HD-tDCS, the only platform that combines the robustness and portability of tDCS with the targeting of TMS. We are thrilled for this recognition from the BRAIN prize."

BACKGROUND: High-Definition tDCS (HD-tDCS) is an exclusive Neuromodulation technology developed by Soterix Medical Inc. Invented at The City College of New York, it is the only technology platform that allows tolerated non-invasive delivery of therapeutic current to desired brain regions. As a result, HD-tDCS offers potential for safe and effective treatment of neuropsychiatric disorders not possible with any other technology. HD-tDCS is made possible through innovations in electrode design allowing safe and tolerated passage of current through proprietary “High-Definition” electrodes, individualized brain current-flow modeling and through patented targeting algorithms indicating how to place and energize HD-electrodes on the head.
