As a leading supplier of products for life science and neurophysiological research, we manufacture and stock a diverse range of stimulators – including constant current and constant voltage stimulators, low-noise stimulus isolators, and multi-channel stimulators for human and clinical use.

These are all innovative, high-quality devices, available at very competitive prices. Whatever the nature of your latest research study, we’re almost certain to have a stimulator that meets your needs.Browse our full collection today, and if you have any questions – or would like tailored advice on the best electric stimulator for your application – please don’t hesitate to contact our experts.

Digitimer Ltd has an international reputation for high-quality electrical stimulators. Our devices are used all over the world for electrophysiological applications, both in clinical and biomedical research areas, and we always strive to push the boundaries with our product range.

Over the last 40 years, we have honed our skills in this area and created a fantastic selection of stimulators to meet our clients’ needs.

Nevertheless, we’re still committed to product development and continuously work alongside universities and hospitals to develop new innovative devices. The latest of which includes the DS8R – a multi-mode constant current stimulator, designed for human research and regarded as the ‘next generation’ of muscle and nerve stimulation.

All of our stimulators are CE certified and either meet or exceed required standards. As an ISO 13485 certified manufacturer, we have extensive experience within the area of medical device design, development and manufacture. Furthermore, client satisfaction is at the heart of everything we do. Our prices are competitive and we pride ourselves on our excellent pre- and post-sales service.

Due to the wide range and complexity of devices now available, we appreciate that choosing the right medical or human research stimulator for your needs may not be the easiest decision.

We always aim to make our stimulators as general-purpose as possible. But inevitably, some devices are better suited to certain applications than others. And the best device for you will depend on several factors, including the nature of your research, how/where you intend to use it and more.

When selecting an electric stimulator, some of the most important things to consider include:

  • Output current range
  • Output resolution and accuracy
  • Compliance voltage
  • Pulse duration
  • Output pulse shape
  • Polarity, biphasic or charge-balanced output
  • Hardware and software control methods

If you’re unsure, our product brochure can be a helpful place to start. This includes a detailed summary of all the stimulator devices currently available and lists the key features of each.

It’s also worth taking a look at our ‘Guide to Digitimer’s range of isolated electrical stimulators’.

Not only does this comprehensively explain the features listed above, it also includes a useful downloadable table, which summarises the main characteristics of several of our stimulator models – including the DS5, DS7A & DS7AH, DS7R and, the latest addition to our collection, the DS8R.

For further information and tailored advice on the most appropriate device for your needs, you’re also welcome to contact us at any time. Just get in touch via our website or give us a call.

Yes. Some are designed and manufactured specifically for use in human research settings, whilst other electric stimulator models are only suitable for animal or in vitro use. Of those which are safe for use with human subjects, several have been medically certified.

For example, the DS7R and DS8R are both designated as human research devices. They’re compliant with many of the relevant international medical device and safety standards, but due to their versatile features and specifications, we’re unable to seek medical certification for these stimulators.

By contrast, the D185, DS5, DS7AP, DS7A and DS7AH have all received medical certification in the UK, EU and several other countries. The D185, DS7AP and DS7A/DS7AH also have FDA 510(k) clearing for marketing in the USA.

It’s important to note that, devices that are only intended for human research – rather than clinical use – do not need to be medically approved. Certification can sometimes make it easier for your research to gain ethical approval. But if a research device is favoured for your project, we can support your ethical approval application with technical documentation relating to its safety.

More information on the use of non-medically certified stimulators can be found in our blog ‘Is a medical device necessary for my study?’. But if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our experts. Either call us on 01707 328347 or send an email to [email protected].

Here at Digitimer, we take great pride in the quality of our products. All of our stimulators undergo a rigorous design, manufacture and testing process – therefore faults and failures are highly unlikely.

Having said that, constant current and constant voltage stimulators are complex devices made from hundreds of parts (sourced from a range of suppliers). Which means, there’s always a small chance that – at some point in the device’s lifetime – an unexpected fault or issue may occur.

We appreciate that an electric stimulator is a significant investment for most research studies. Which is why, we offer a free 1-year manufacturer’s warranty with each model as standard.

In addition, we offer the opportunity to register for a complimentary 2-year warranty – up to 28 days from the point of delivery. And for a small extra charge, you can now extend this to 5 years.

Please note, these warranties do not cover general wear and tear, or damage caused by incorrect use or mishandling of the stimulator. But they do cover all manufacturing defects and electronic component failures and can provide peace of mind that your new device is properly protected.

This depends on the type of stimulator you require and can range from a few hundred to several thousand pounds. The manufacturer’s Net List Price for each stimulator is displayed below. But please note, this excludes UK VAT and shipping costs, and international pricing will be influenced by exchange rates, local taxes, import charges, operational costs, shipping and packing.

To get a better idea of the cost of your chosen stimulator, the best option is to request a quote. Simply add the device to your ‘quote list’ and provide a few details, including how you intend to use the equipment. A member of the team will then respond to your enquiry, with application-specific recommendations and an accurate quote – in either GB Pounds, US Dollars, or Euros.

Alternatively, to find out more about our stimulators and their associated costs, you’re welcome to call us at any time. Simply dial 01707 328347 for UK enquiries or (954) 334-1070 for US enquiries.

Our electrical stimulators are not currently available for online purchase. Due to the complex nature of these devices, we ask potential customers to first make an enquiry or request a quote. Just submit our online quote form, give us a call, or send an email to [email protected].

Once we have received your enquiry, a member of the team will respond as soon as possible with further information – including specific application recommendations, tailored advice on the best stimulator for your requirements and the estimated cost of your requested equipment.

If you wish to go ahead with the purchase, please submit a purchase order to our team via mail or e-mail.
