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 am treating chronic migraines, this device helps relieve scalp muscle spasms that are part of my migraines. That is helpful. I have not found any change in frequency of headaches or level of depression
Alright, I've used the Activadose a handful of times now and it's too early to say if this product will have been worth the cost (which turned out to be a lot larger than at the end than I had initiall cointed).
Using the activadose is simple enough, though I don't fully understand why setting the time for a session isn't in plain minutes instead of the 80mA/minutes, though I'm sure there is one.
It's a bit too early to say if tdcs will have any substantial effect on me, but thus far have I noticed some subtle changes in my overall energy and mood, though this might be affected by placebo.
I will continue using it and try to delve more into the science of it.
As for your company, I'm pleased enough with the service you've given and whatever discontent I have is due to my own rashness in purchasing this product, frankly because of pressing desperation. I should have researched a bit more my options instead of just going by the recommendations I found online which guided me to your site, which mainly came from clients from the US, to whom shipping isn't as costly as it is for, say, a finnish person. But again, this is no fault of yours.Let's hope the activadose will zap me with some common sense for future purchasing.
Thanks and all the best
Would have been better if an actual tDCS Manual, Headband use, and Electrode Placement Montage Manual were included instead of having to download and print your own copies of same
I use a few tDCS products and I love ActivaDose tDCS but I wish they would offer both sizes 2x2 and 3x3 instead of just 2x2.
Better than I expected. easy to use.
In general terms, it's an excellent product. The only problem I found was that the marking ink may fade if you handle the rubber strap too much.
i love this item.great relief from depression.the caputron company was extremely helpful with my questions.thanks
