Mission statement and values
We feel that everyone deserves high quality care. With our Sooma therapies, we want to provide an effective and safe way to treat disorders within psychiatry and neurology. We want to offer a safe, drug-free treatment option with minimal side effects, that minimises any discomfort that might otherwise come with treating certain disorders. We want to ensure that medical professionals have access to a treatment option for patients which relieves symptoms without any fear of addiction or dependency. Our mission is to make our therapies an available and accessible option for all who may benefit from them. This includes patients who are unable to visit a clinic, but would benefit from a home-based treatment that does not compromise safety.
Sooma Oy is a Finnish medical device company established in 2013. Since the start, we have been working closely with leading experts in psychiatry and clinical neurophysiology to develop effective treatment solutions for health conditions in these areas. In 2014, we launched Sooma Depression Therapy, a mild brain stimulation treatment solution for Major Depressive Disorder, along with Sooma tDCS, the high-end stimulation device that is used to conduct the treatment.
