Optimized Electric Stimulation sends a small electric current into specific regions of the brain. U optimizes how the current is delivered portably.
Other Noninvasive Stimulation Techniques
Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT) is a procedure where current is sent into the brain to cause a brief seizure. A large amount of power is needed and it is used to treat disorders such as Major Depressive Disorder, Catatonia, Parkinson’s Disease, and Mania. Cost: $25,000>
Transcranial Current Stimulation (tCS) is a treatment that passes a small amount of current to help ‘stimulate’ areas of the brain. Electrodes, or sponges, are placed on either side of the head the electrical field passes between them to stimulate the areas in between. However, it has been shown that TCS cannot stimulate well due to unoptimized current delivery. Cost: ~$300
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) uses large magnetic fields that can enter the brain and stimulate neurons near the surface of the skull. It has shown to be effective for disorders such as OCD, Major Depressive Disorder, and some forms of Dementia. Although sometimes effective, it can come at a high price. Cost: ~$15,000
At U: The Mind Company, we are combining the best qualities of each noninvasive approach while keeping it cost-effective and portable.
