Our team at Caputron believes in empowering the mind as well as informing customers before purchasing a specific technology. Knowledge is indeed power, as some neuromodulation devices are more appropriate for certain use cases than others. With our state-of-the-art Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation devices – tDCS, for short – we offer a completely safe, painless, and non-invasive approach to brain stimulation. If you’re wondering where to buy tDCS equipment built to last and perform admirably for years to come, you’re in the right place.
Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation is a popular type of neurostimulation, optimized to deliver low-voltage currents to the brain to help regulate neurological behavior. Currently in the investigational phase, it isn’t FDA-approved for specific medical diagnoses, treatment, prevention, or curing of any one disease. However, it remains a safe, controlled solution, CE-cleared for addressing depression and chronic pain conditions including migraines and fibromyalgia. The current introduced is constant, capable of being administered in a positive (anodal) or negative (cathodal) means of stimulation to produce unique results.

tDCS utilizes a set of electrodes, affixed to the left and right side of the user’s head, to enable a direction of current flow from one side to the other. These are connected by leads to a small main system, often as small as an average-sized cellphone, which delivers the low, constant current through said electrodes. Different areas of the brain can be targeted by utilizing appropriate mapping guides, allowing you to encourage a specific chemical response. We sell electrodes, replacement pads, and ever-popular strap apparatuses to aid in appropriate placement to ensure optimal efficiency during each session.
An alternative neuromodulation solution is TMS. It differs from tDCS in that it utilizes much larger system hardware, usually the size of a microwave or small fridge and attached to a cart. This makes it more practical for clinical settings than at home. In addition, TMS uses electromagnetism via a single head-mounted coil, delivering short and powerful bursts of energy that activate areas of the brain with each pulse. Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation, as noted above, instead delivers a constant, low-voltage electrical current, and sessions typically take a bit longer than with TMS, but they are still rather quick.
