Our team at Caputron takes great pride in providing premium-quality, medical-grade current stimulation solutions that are designed for maximum safety and efficiency. Whether through your local practitioner or on your own, depending on the requirements associated with the technology in question, we work hard to ensure an optimal experience for every user. With Transcranial Alternating Current Stimulation devices and accessories from Caputron – otherwise known as tACS – you can reap the benefits of a relatively new, non-invasive solution
tACS is designed to standardize activity in the brain. This is achieved by administering a carefully controlled, low-level current at a set wavelength frequency. This tends to result, in most cases, in improved motor functionality, cognitive awareness, and sensory control. Mood and emotions also have the potential of being improved. The treatment is completely painless, and sessions are relatively quick, and the current is automatically regulated to ensure your safety at all times.
Transcranial Alternating Current Stimulation is made possible by placing electrodes over a specific area of the scalp to target key behavioral zones of the brain. The connected tACS device, once configured with the correct parameters, then utilizes specific frequencies to generate oscillation matching the frequency of that within the brain itself. It’s a unique approach to neuromodulation, and we’re excited to offer it here at Caputron.
Perhaps you’ve heard of another method that sounds similar to this, known as tDCS. However, tACS behaves differently, as it doesn’t apply a direct current to a targeted cranial zone. Instead, a sinusoidal current is utilized, optimized to align with the brain’s existing cortical oscillations – brain waves that occur naturally. The benefits of tACS are largely dependent on the amplification, frequency, and phase utilized in the sinusoidal current’s oscillations, as it is important that desynchronization with the brain’s cortical oscillations doesn’t occur.
At the moment, tACS devices are not FDA approved for medical use in the United States. However, this doesn’t mean that they are in any way unsafe or unfit for use. Clinical trials and studies are ongoing, and therefore, it is in the investigational stage. It is important to be realistic in one’s expectations on what this – and any other neuromodulation device – is capable of. In most cases, mood and wellness benefits are noticeable, and aside from minor tingling or irritation at the administration site on the scalp, there are no real side effects.
We at Caputron have a wide array of tACS devices and accessories readily available, and we want to help you make a well-informed purchasing decision.
