Epoch reusable sensors with Plastics1 implantReusable neural sensorEpoch implant common reference

Bone screws are needed to anchor the Plastics1 electrode system. The wires get clipped short and implanted, then dental acrylic is placed around the lower portion of the white plastic and bone screws to anchor the system in place. The Epoch reusable transmitter is attached to the Plastics1 electrode system implanted on the skull (the clearish collar screws on to the implanted Plastics1 electrode system). Review the Epoch-Plastics1 Implantation Guide for details.

The Activator was updated in April 2017 to include an ON/OFF switch for reusable transmitters. If you purchased the ORIGINAL and want to use Reusable Transmitters, contact BIOPAC to discuss options.

Haptic (Tactile) Stimulation Transducer

The TSD190 is a haptic (tactile) stimulator that is ergonomically designed to strap onto a variety of body locations. It incorporates an internal electromagnetically actuated plunger which can be used to mechanically stimulate a 1.5 mm diameter area of skin surface; both plunger force and travel can be infinitely adjusted between zero and a specified […]
