What can the PlatoWork headset be used for?
The PlatoWork tDCS headset is developed to maintain the consistency and effect of cognitive treatment in between clinical consultations. tDCS is a versatile technology and can be used by clinicians to support treatment within a range of conditions. The most common applications are depression and addiction treatment. But as tDCS is, generally, increasing neuroplasticity, it can be combined with any cognitive treatment to increase the effect.
tDCS can be used in combination with prescribed treatment activities, or on its own, to improve mood and higher cognitive functions.
Through our database of clinical applications for tDCS, we can make recommendations for the most relevant tDCS protocol to support the treatment program of your client.
