Home and clinical therapy
Made safe and easy

Basic Kit

HDCstim is the unique Direct Current stimulator that guarantees patient’s safety and treatment repeatability also for self administration at home.
HDCstim allows treatment programming by authorized medical personnel only through HDCprog or WebBioBank.

Easy to use

Suitable for home treatments

For research and clinical use

Modular and programmable 

First tdcs portable & programmable system

Composed by:
HDCstim® - stimulator device
HDCprog - programmer
HDCel - electrodes kit

In addition is possible to configure HDCstim® with MindCap instead of electrodes.


Features & Settings


Safe treatment programming for patient’s use at home.

The physician sets:

HDCprog is a touch-screen LCD that, connected to HDCStim®, allows stimulation settings through an easy and friendly interface. HDCprog is powered by an AC/DC adapter certified for medical use.

HDCprog is the healthcare professionals device for programming stimulation cycles and for monitoring results. It can be connected to any HDCstim once provided the required personal access code. The stimulation settings are stored in the HDCstim linked to the authorized prescriber.

HDCstim can be also remotely programmed via www.webbiobank.com through the ISOcable. Available on request only for large patient groups.


HDCel is a set of standard tDCS electrodes enabling both intra and extra cephalic stimulation.

Available size: 25 cm2 and 51 cm2
Cables for HDCstim con- nections, conductive gel and head cap are also provided.


A novel generation

MindCap is designed for safe and repeatable  tDCS treatment at home as an alternative to standard HDCel.
MindCap can be configured with the correct and personalized electrode placement avoiding any patient’s mistake during self administration.


Innovative “three lines of force structure” for optimal electrode contact Intra-cephalic or extra-cephalic reference Full control of electrode positioning for safe home use according to the International 10–20 System.


MindCap_6p 6 electrical connection for the classical tDCS montage.

MindCap_R 19 electrical connection for different montage in tDCS research.

Any model includes one pre-wired Cap, Armband and Electrode set.

Armband & Electrodes

Armband reference electrode allows extra-cephalic stimulation protocols.
A large return electrode (70 cm²) ensures low current density on the stimulation return site.

Specifically designed elliptic electrodes to avoid local increase of current density and corner effect.
No conductive GEL required due to an internal biocompatible sponge that remains wet for the entire treatment.
Available size: 25cm² and 35cm².

Certifications & Quality

Newronika Quality Management System ensures proper implementation and effective monitoring of processes of design, development, purchasing, production, marketing, customer communication and assistance: primary processes for the quality policy.

Newronika Quality Management System is based on the following general purposes:
- Design and manufacture of neurological medical devices class I, IIa, IIb and III (All.II - Directive 93/42/EEC).
- Distribution and technical assistance of these innovative and high-tech medical devices;

In this context, our organization chooses to use the Quality Management System as tool to improve its performance according to the standard CEI UNI EN ISO 13485:2012.

The Quality Management System has the purpose of control of our own processes and maintain the effectiveness of the System, to increase customer satisfaction and to ensure compliance with customer requirements and with the applicable legislative and regulatory requirements and, in particular, those of Directive 93/42 / EEC and subsequent amendments and updates. 

For the commercialization of its own devices in countries outside the European Union territory, Newronika also undertakes to ensure compliance with applicable local legislation and regulatory requirements (ie Canadian Medical Devices Conformity Assessment System and Korean Ministry of Food and Drug Safety).

The HDCstim product and its accessories are class IIa EC - certified Medical Devices according to European Directive 93/42/EEC and comply with electro-medical regulations including IEC 60601-1-11 (Medical Electrical Systems used in the Home Healthcare Environment). 

The EC certificate for the HDCstim product and for its accessories was issued by the Notified Body 0068 (MIT International Testing Srl) which also certified our Quality System.
