For over a decade, 1x1 platforms have introduced industry leading features that enhanced reliability, usability, and rigor. Soterix Medical products remain the choice when quality cannot be comprimised with outcomes that are specific to quality of these features.
Conventional tDCS uses one anode and one cathode (1x1) with tremendous possibilities for customization and optimization. The Soterix Medical 1x1 line of stimulators provides clinicians with the right solution. The selection of the right stimulator for your objectives is central for rational tDCS/tES.
Every 1x1 accessory is optimized for simple and consistent set-up, robust and safe performance, and ease of use. Since "one size does not fit all" in tES, the 1x1 accessory set provides the flexibility to optimize performance. From EASYpads™ to EASYstraps™ Soterix Medical 1x1 accessories are designed and validated specifically for the 1x1 platform. Our scientific team is ready to help you select the best accessory set to make your 1x1 the most optimized platform adjustable to any application.
Limited Total Energy for tDCS (LTE-tDCS) was developed exclusively by Soterix engineers. LTE limits the voltage and power required for tDCS through the use of adaptive ramp-up stimulation and intelligent energy management for currents up to 5 mA. Soterix Medical LTE enabled devices include the most advanced transient protection in the industry, an electrode becoming temporarily disconnected, for example due to subject movement. In addition, should resistance increase to atypical levels, LTE-tDCS will automatically reduce the applied current so as to maintain a low voltage.
Soterix Medical LTE enabled devices provide additional safety margin without compromising efficacy, when stimulating susceptible subjects. Our scientific team is ready to work with you to determine optimal dose parameters and accessories.
The difference between conventional tDCS and tDCS-LTE is that conventional tDCS applies a fixed ramp slope while tDCS-LTE varies ramp intensity to limit power delivery. Soterix tDCS-LTE also limits power transients that might occur during tDCS due to sudden changes in resistance. tDCS-LTE further enhances abort-protection features already enabled on all Soterix 1x1 devices. Finally, tDCS-LTE alerts the operator when a high-power condition occurs and automatically activates LTE to reduce power consumption.
