The Best Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation Devices
Choosing a transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) device can be overwhelming. To help you find the right product, here’s a rundown of the best tDCS devices available at Caputron.
What is tDCS?
tDCS is a type of brain stimulation, or brain training. It uses low-level electrical currents to activate or inhibit activity in different areas of the brain. In other words, tDCS increases or decreases brain activity, depending on how it’s used.
tDCS involves placing electrodes on the head. The placement determines what brain regions we target. These electrodes deliver small, safe, low-level impulses to the desired areas. The impulses affect neuron activity to encourage them to speed up or calm down.
Benefits of Transcranial Direct Current Brain Stimulation
tDCS devices are not medical devices. Although tDCS is nothing new, the application of this technology is still relatively new. At this point, clinical trials are underway which may help to improve our understanding of this technology.
However, from what we know so far, it’s clear that tDCS is hugely promising and offers many benefits.
- tDCS is highly versatile. Altering brain function this way could help to improve your mood, increase focus, and boost your wellbeing.
- tDCS may help to boost cognitive function in adults with conditions such as Alzheimer’s.
- There’s evidence that tDCS can offer some relief to adults with behavioral disorders such as ADHD.
There are few reported side effects and no serious documented side effects.
What are tDCS Devices?
A tDCS device is the tool you use to deliver electrical stimulation to the brain. For the most part, tDCS devices are easy to use.
Typical tDCS devices are fairly small and portable. They’re designed so you can use them wherever you’re most comfortable. Some devices, like the LIFTiD tDCS device, resemble headgear.
Whatever device you choose, though, they all involve electrode placement to a specific area of the brain to work.
