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.

I'm a physics student diagnosed with severe depression and generalized anxiety. Despite being under medication for 4 years, my situation was going worse and worse to the point of not being able to even to continue my studies as I once could. After some research, which included meditation, exercise and CBD products, which all impact positively on the condition, I found out about tDCS. As I couldn't afford time to built a device myself I looked for a cheap but reliable model. I can assure you, this one is one hell of a beauty without any unnecessary bells and whistles. The circuit is solid and the output is incredibly reliable under several tests on different materials. Even if it's bigger than some other devices, this one uses pretty standard parts, which could be easily replaceable in a local electronic store. I've been using it over a month already and I must say it works, specially while doing some mindfulness exercises. Don't be put away by the rust of the anode banana plugs that you see from some pictures after some use, it's a normal phenomenon in electrolysis which is easily cleaned. Having some electronics knowledge due to my career, I must say I'm impressed how comparable or even superior this product is to some other "branded" ones. As for a tDCS device, it works exactly as intended, now, one must do some research on electrode placements, and as always, ask a physician beforehand.
I love it when someone is brave enough to choose the BEST technology for a specific function, rather than assuming the newest tech is necessarily the best. People don't really understand this technology yet, so they don't really know what they want, or SHOULD want. If you are getting a tDCS device, you SHOULD want this one for the following reasons: you are crazy to trust a "black box" and not know what level of current you may be sending to your brain. And analog controls allow you to make subtle current changes SMOOTHLY in REALTIME, which I love. Did you really think .5, 1, 1.5, and 2 mA were the only relevant numbers? Something else you should know that you don't: if you don't make small changes in the current level, you may become habituated to the level you use, and you will stop receiving the same level of benefit. Be truly intelligent, and get this if you are serious about tDCS. Oh...customer service is as good as it gets!
This tDCS device is value for money compared with the others
delivery time is ridiculous. As for the actual device, it does what its supposed to, very easy to use and feels high quality.
