The multi-channel kit fully completes StarStim®. With the multi-channel kit, the eight channels of StarStim® can be used for stimulation of a subject undergoing an MRI experiment. Additionally, the reduced sized of the sponge electrodes, Sponstim 8 MRI, included in the kit, not only allows multi-focal stimulation experiments, but also ensures a high spatial resolution of the target area. And all of this while a patient is on the MRI machine! Two Sponstim 25 MRI are also included on the kit for eventual bipolar studies.
The installation of the bipolar kit is recommended to be handled by personnel specialised in shielding systems. Proper installation of each Filter is required; using the kit without a correct installation of the filter is dangerous.
