Abstract

For more than 30 years, researchers and doctors from Russian, the U.S, France, Israel and other countries have studied methods of transcrebral or transcranial electrotherapy stimulation (TES). Transcranial impulse electrotherapy is a specific type of transcranial electrotherapy that uses low power impulse current to stimulate the antinoceptive system of the encephalon to provide procedures of electrodream and transcranial electroanagelsia. The stimulation current must be kept constant during treatment session. Traditionally, it can be done by employing close-loop control that continuously supervises the stimulation current. The fact that the impulse current for TES is low power can cause difficulties in measuring and controlling the current. Therefore, in this paper, we will introduce detailed design of current stabilization circuit that produces constant impulse current but doesn’t require closed loop control.
