Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) is a form of non-invase neurostimulation that delivers a constant low level current to the brain through the use of electrodes placed on the scalp. This neuromodulation technique uses a steady current between 1 - 2 mA delivered through electrodes to targeted regions of the brain to modulate brain function. Using different electrode configurations, tDCS can be used to either excite or inhibit neuronal activity in the targeted region.
Headquartered in New York City, Caputron is the leading worldwide distributor of home, clinical and research neurostimulation technology, such as tDCS, TMS, CES and EEG. By partnering with world-class device manufacturers, we supply a range of excellent neurostimulation devices and accessories, such as Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) and Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS).
The Fisher Wallace Stimulator is FDA cleared to treat depression, anxiety and insomnia by gently stimulating the brain to produce serotonin and other neurochemicals that regulate mood and sleep. Ideally, you should use the device twice a day for 20 minutes until your symptoms go into remission. If you no longer have symptoms, you can stop using the device and then renew treatment if the symptoms return. The device has been on the market for decades without any reports of long-term negative effects. Many patients have used the device for years. When used cranially to treat insomnia, depression and anxiety, 1 in 500 patients report a mild headache upon using the device. Appoximately 1 in 250 patients may experience an increase in wakefulness immediately after using the device. If this occurs, the device should not be used within three hours of bedtime. Although not a side effect, improper use of the device may result in minor electrode irritation - this can occur if the sponges are not thoroughly wet before use. Please watch the instructional video and read the instruction manual thoroughly before using the device. People with very sensitive skin may find that the sponge electrodes, even when wet, cause a slight irritation to the skin - but this is very rare. The electrical current is so gentle that many patients do not feel it at all and more than 20 published studies prove the safety and effectiveness of CES. Many people report positive changes during or shortly after the first 5-10 treatment sessions. Results in treating insomnia are typically experienced faster than in treating depression and anxiety. The device should be used daily for 30-45 days before making a decision regarding effectiveness. While level 2 is the recommended starting dosage level, the device may be used safely at level 3 and 4, should level 2 not produce positive results after two weeks. When using the device, resting quietly is best, but one can engage in activities such as reading, watching TV, using the computer, or talking on the phone during a treatment session.
Freedom from depression, anxiety and insomnia is achievable with the Fisher Wallace Stimulator®. The majority of patients in clinical trials experienced significant symptom reduction within the first two weeks of using the device daily for 20 minutes.
Twelve studies have been conducted using the Fisher Wallace Stimulator®, including a successful depression treatment clinical trial conducted at Mount Sinai Beth Israel Hospital and published in the Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease (see chart below). As a result, more than 9000 providers have recommended the Fisher Wallace Stimulator® to their patients.
The Fisher Wallace Stimulator® is a portable medical device that comfortably stimulates brain regions responsible for healthy mood and sleep. The device is cleared by the FDA and approved for sale over-the-counter in Europe for the treatment of depression, anxiety and insomnia.

Wow, I've suffered from depression for 5 years now and medicine never helped, but I immediately felt an improvement after one session.
What an amazing piece of technology! Didn't believe my doctor at first after hearing about CES but I'm sold now!
