When asked what device we at Caputron recommend for tDCS, we always suggest the Activadose Starter Kit. When compared to other devices, this is the only commercially available device that has an existing FDA clearance and is built to medical standards. The Activadose device is IEC 60601 EMC compliant, which is the main EMC standard for medical electrical devices and systems. This testing is a series of technical standards for the safety and essential performance of medical electrical equipment, published by the International Electrotechnical Commission. As a result, this device is approved by Institutional Review Boards (IRB) allowing the device to be used in tDCS publications as well as in every day clinics. Many physicians will recommend their patients purchase the Activadose Starter Kit for at home tDCS. This device has lived up to its name and is the most reliable device on the market.
