The Soterix Medical 1×1-LTE is the only tDCS device optimized for susceptible populations with features optimized to reduce anxiety and sensation including SmartScan™, Relax™, and Tickle™. Additionally with an exclusive feature of Soterix Medical LTE™, makes it the most intelligent power and transient management system for currents up to 1.5 mA.

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 1.5 mA. The Soterix Medical 1×1 tDCS-LTE includes 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 tDCS-LTE is a unique system that provides an additional safety margin, without compromising efficacy, when stimulating susceptible subjects. 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.

Our scientific team is ready to work with you to determine optimal dose parameters and accessories.

Advanced transient protection should an electrode become temporarily disconnected. LTE-tDCS will automatically reduce the applied current so as to maintain a low voltage should resistance increase to atypical levels.

From pre-stimulation set-up, to during stimulation monitoring, to post-stimulation confirmation, the Soterix Medical SmartScan™ feature provides an intuitive and clear indication of electrode contact quality. Use the SmartScan™ during set-up to adjust electrodes and head-gear for optimal fit. During stimulation, SmartScan™ provides a constant indication of electrode quality and can be monitored during adjustments (e.g. addition of saline to drying electrodes). After stimulation, SmartScan™ confirms a successful trial. Because “resistance” is not meaningful for tDCS, SmartScan™ was developed by Soterix Medical engineers to provide clinical investigators with a simple to read indication of contact quality.

What other devices promise, the 1×1 tDCS delivers. The back-lit display can be monitored during stimulation ramp up and to confirm target current intensity is achieved.

Tickle™ may be used to both condition skin prior to tDCS and for naïve subject anxious about stimulation. A custom on-off waveform pattern generates mild and brief sensation under electrodes.

Based on feed-back from leading clinical centers, Soterix Medical exclusive feature Relax™ accommodates subjects who may be anxious when stimulation is initiated or during the course of stimulation. The Relax™ slider may be adjusted from full to reduced intensity based on subject perception without interrupting or aborting stimulation.

An automatic stimulation sham feature that is engaged with a simple switch. Auto-sham automatically calculated and produces a sham waveform based on the the indicated “real” waveform. For example, for a corresponding real waveform of 1.5 mA and 10 minutes. auto-sham will provide a ramp up/down to 1.5 mA at the start of of stimulation, and again after 10 minutes, with the timer automatically adjusted such that the total run time us exactly matched to the real case. Based on the Soterix Medical OpenPanelTM design principle: with no complicated programming or hidden drop-down menus required.
