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).
Save big while quantifying your tDCS session with this bundle -- complete with an Activadose tDCS starter kit along with the EEG capabilities of the Muse headband, see what tDCS is actually doing to your brain waves in real time!
Don't just stimulate, quantify. This all-in-one Caputron tDCS+EEG starter kit has all the necessary tools for a quantifiable tDCS session. Work faster and smarter with all your supplies bundled into an exclusive Muse EEG and Activadose tDCS Starter Kit bundle. Used by researchers and clinics around the world for tDCS, the Activaodse II remains one of the most popular medical and research grade tDCS devices. Originally designed and FDA cleared for Iontophoresis, this device was released with a maximum current setting of 4 mA and maximum output voltage of 80 volts. Featured in numerous scientific publications and advocated by many tDCS professionals the device was quickly adopted by the DIY tDCS community. Caputron exclusively carries a limited edition 2mA / 29 volt version of the Activadose designed specifically for tDCS. Muse is a brain sensing headband that makes meditation easier. Meditation has been proven to reduce stress and increase focus, but it can be hard to know if you’re doing it right. Muse provides you with real-time audio feedback on what’s happening in your brain when you meditate, letting you know when your mind wanders and teaching you to regain focus. Using apps available on the app store, muse can provide real time EEG feedback.
Muse is used in hospitals, clinics, and universities worldwide as a research tool. It can pair with any tablet or smartphone and operate with the Muse application, which trains the user in meditation exercises and records EEG data. Novice meditators usually struggle with two issues: knowing whether they are “doing it right,” and staying motivated. Muse addresses these issues by providing real-time “state of mind” feedback, and offering an engaging motivational framework.
Muse: the brain sensing headband, is an electroencephalography (EEG) technology. EEG is a well-established, non-invasive, harmless method of recording the electrical activity of groups of brain cells. EEG provides robust real-time insight into the brain; and Muse is the most versatile and easy-to-use EEG system available. Your brain is constantly generating electrical signals when you’re thinking, sleeping or even relaxing. These signals can be detected from outside your head, via sensors. Muse uses the same brain sensing technology that doctors and scientists have employed for more than a century to detect your brain signals, similar to how a heart monitor measures your pulse. Muse has 7 finely calibrated sensors – 2 on the forehead, 2 behind the ears plus 3 reference sensors – which detect and measure the activity of your brain.

although I haven't tested it with a meter (I'm scared to harm the electronics) it seems the Activadose works without problems and provides excellent current flow with little effort. The muse software is not found using some smart phones. I wish I could use it with my laptop.
I have only been able to access the app for muse since yesterday and plan to try the muse system today. The Activadose tDCS is dynamite.
Sales support was super quick to answer my questions and get the kit shipped to me. The ActivaDose unit is easy to use but I haven't been able to tell yet if it's effective. The Muse headband has been a lot of fun to use. I'll update my review to 5 stars if I find the tDCS functionality is effective.
Surpassed my expectations in every way. Highly recommend for healthy living.
You can unlock the muse with some really nice API's and use the raw data to do some cool studies. We are wokring with Caputron to build a study around these devices
Knew thought to bundle these and use the EEG from the muse for somthing other than meditation. It is clever and really cool but it beceomes a bit expensive for me.
