What we offer
Supporting Mental Healthcare
The PlatoWork headset uses TES technology. TES stands for transcranial electrical stimulation (commonly also referred to as tDCS or tACS) and is an evidence-based, non-invasive, neuromodulation technique for supporting the treatment of psychiatric and psychological conditions. TES can be beneficially combined with other forms of treatment e.g. pharmacological interventions or psychotherapy.
PlatoScience products are not standalone treatments but supportive tools for professional healthcare providers.

Rikke Engelbrecht, Clinic Owner and Director, Hejmdal Private Hospital, Denmark
We are collaborating with PlatoScience to give our patients the opportunity to increase the effect of their treatment in between consultations. The fact that the tDCS sessions can take place in the home of the patients, strengthens their sense of empowerment and autonomy, which we know to have a great effect.
Theodoros Koutsomitros, Psychiatrist, Medical Psychotherapeutic Centre, Greece
PlatoWork tDCS is a very useful add on therapy, and it is very easy to use with friendly applications that can be used even by older patients. I find it extremely helpful in my work, and I warmly recommend it for my colleagues.

Neuromodulation with TES
The brain is fascinating.
It constantly changes and adapts to demands that it receives. This process is called neuroplasticity which means the brain is constantly changing and creating new connections to improve information processing capabilities.
TES enhances neuroplasticity by accelerating the rate of change and working with the brain to reach higher levels of connectivity faster. It delivers a microcurrent to the regions of the brain that include mood, attention, motor control, working memory and other higher cognitive functions.
The PlatoWork headset uses a type of TES called tDCS. In tDCS, two or more electrodes are placed on the scalp and a weak current is sent between them.
Where the current enters, neuronal firing increases. Where the current exits, the firing decreases.
tDCS has level A and level B evidence for a number of treatments, and the PlatoWork headset makes it easy for any clinician to offer this technology as a supportive tool for existing treatments.

Not a treatment in itself: PlatoScience does not provide, sell or recommend tDCS as a treatment in itself. We offer tDCS as a tool to support and increase the efficacy of existing treatment protocols.
