"I see tDCS as an effective and safe treatment option in psychiatry"
"Given its excellent safety profile, I do mention this therapeutic option to my patients"
Safe and trusted brain stimulation treatments
Sooma therapies are effective and safe noninvasive brain stimulation treatments for psychiatric and neurological disorders. With evidence-based, at-home trials with transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), we have standardised clinical brain stimulation treatments for depression and chronic pain.
Our therapies are drug-free and can be used either as a first-line of treatment or to bring additive effects to other forms of treatment. The treatments can be self-applied by patients at home, under the remote supervision of a medical professional. Healthcare professionals in more than 30 countries worldwide treat thousands of patients each year with equipment built by Sooma in Finland, with proven results of efficacy.
Our Sooma therapies
Sooma provides unique therapy solutions that combine effectiveness with ease-of-use. Our therapies are indicated for:
- Major Depressive Disorder
- Chronic pain disorders, such as Fibromyalgia and Chronic Neuropathic Pain.
The therapies use a noninvasive brain stimulation technique called transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), and are given using our portable medical device Sooma tDCS. Our therapies have been proven effective in placebo-controlled trials, and the majority of patients feel relief in their symptoms after a few weeks.
For healthcare professionals
In Sooma Depression Therapy, tDCS is used to modulate the function of the prefrontal areas of the brain with the aim of normalising the hypoactivity of the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC).
Sooma Pain Therapy is indicated for the treatment of Fibromyalgia and Chronic Neuropathic pain. Here, tDCS is used to modulate the function of the motor cortex, based on this area’s role in processing pain signals.
Information for patients
Sooma Depression Therapy is an effective and safe treatment for depression. A mild electric current is used to painlessly stimulate the areas of the brain that are affected by depression, relieving the symptoms and restoring a healthy balance. Sooma Pain Therapy is an effective and safe treatment for chronic pain that is free of pharmaceuticals. A mild electric current is used to painlessly stimulate the areas of the brain that process pain signals, relieving the pain symptoms. Both therapies are easy and completely safe to apply, and can be done either at a clinic or in the comfort of your own home.
How our therapies work
Sooma offers a complete therapy solution. A portable medical device uses transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) that is delivered as a controlled dose to specific areas in the head. The electrical current is given through two electrodes and super absorbent stimulation pads. A head cap is used to position the electrodes correctly and in the same way for each treatment. This creates a stimulation system that delivers the correct treatment dose to the correct treatment area, each time and also at patients’ home.
By using Sooma online platform, you can also follow the treatment progress remotely and react to changes in the patients’ condition.
