Introduction to tDCS webinar
In this webinar, we take a look into transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) as a treatment for depression, focusing on the clinical evidence available, treatment indications, as well as practical examples regarding treatment administration, patient selection, and the importance of follow-ups. Besides, we present the most recent literature on the field.
The webinar took place on the 6th of February, 2023. It was intended for medical professionals, and the language was English.
We regularly host webinars for medical professionals throughout the year to look at tDCS therapies from different perspectives. Through our webinar series, we aim to provide a more in-depth understanding of the capabilities and opportunities that tDCS presents for clinical practice.

Are there any contraindications?
While Sooma Therapy is safe when used correctly, there are specific risk groups where caution should be used. If the patient has metal within the skull or an implanted life-supporting medical device in the body, the therapy should not be used. Further, if the skin under the electrodes is broken or diseased, the stimulation should not be applied.
