Over the past four and a half year since it was first introduced, Digitimer has delivered their DS8R biphasic charged balanced electric stimulators to hundreds of prominent and leading research laboratories throughout the world. These laboratories are using the DS8R to research all kinds of effects that electrical stimulation has on the human body. This includes extensive recent research using the Digitimer DS8R at the Applied Research Laboratory for Intelligence and Security at the University of Maryland. The Digitimer DS8R stimulator is helping further research on Transcutantous Vagus Nerve Stimulation (tVNS). Researchers have shown results that tVNS has an effect on state mood and anxiety outcomes and lays the groundwork for further research on quicker language (and other high level skill) learning in a controlled setting. This research is supported by the Naval Information Warfare Center and DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) of the United States government.
