It is not recommended to reuse the decomposable pads more than once because they have only been scientifically tested and we cannot confirm that it would be safe for re-use nor support effective treatment.
For the first 3 weeks - the "Activation phase" - you stimulate for 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week. This kicks off the treatment by activating the neural networks that are less active in people with depression.
For the next 6 weeks - the "Strengthening phase" - you stimulate for 30 minutes a day, 2 days a week. This supports the progress you've made in the activation phase, preventing future episodes of depressive symptoms.
After 9 weeks you can choose to reset the program and return to 5 stimulations a week. If you'd like to increase your stimulations earlier, you can connect to a clinician through the app who can help you with this.
Some users prefer to add saline solution to their pads to add extra moisture for additional comfort.
