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).
The Soterix Medical 1x1 tDCS stimulator is designed for use by researchers, clinicians and biomedical engineers. Built to be the most precise stimulator ever produced for non-invasive electrical stimulation. Comes with the Soterix EASYpads and EASYstraps.
Investigational Device. This product is currently limited to researchers or medical doctors. Please fill out the form below for additional information and pricing.
The Soterix Medical 1x1 was developed by clinical researchers, scientists, and biomedical engineers to provide all clinical standard tDCS protocols. Current intensity from Current intensity from 0.1 to 2 mA (5 mA option available upon request), and current duration from 5 to 40 minutes. Stimulation set-up is straight-forward with the simple to set-up Open-Panel™ controls, 1x1 electrode accessories, and SmartScan™ indicator. The tDCS 1x1 features allow you to focus on the subject and experiment, not the device. The 1x1 remains the only platform with custom features allowing simple to use and reproducible set-up, electrodes and headgear (including the exclusive EASYpads™ and EASYstrap™) designed and tested for tolerability, and software driven Neurotargeting.
The 1x1 platform stimulators are the most precise stimulators ever made for non-invasive electrical stimulation, including unique control features not available on any other products. Built into every 1x1 device are the most advanced monitoring and control systems updating performance and feedback over 1000 times per second. Stimulation output fidelity (signal-to-noise) is maintained during the entire stimulation session even if electrode conditions change. Precise control of output waveform is essential for stimulation efficacy and safety.
Each Soterix Medical 1x1 feature was developed by our team of biomedical engineers consulting closely with leading clinical centers. Designed to simply set-up, provide intelligent warning of a fault condition, and allow for adjustments for patient comfort, these features facilitate reliable and tolerated tDCS. The Soterix Medical SmartScan™ feature is central in all tDCS devices to allow reliable set-up and monitoring. The RELAX™, Tickle™, and TrueCurrent™ innovations were developed for the 1x1 tDCS.
Smartscan: Provides a continuous visual indication of electrode quality before and during stimulation.From pre-stimulation set-up, to during stimulation monitoring, to post-stimulation confirmation, the Soterix Medical SmartScan™ feature provides an intuitive and clear indication of electrode contact quality. Use the SmartScan™ during set-up to adjust electrodes and head-gear for optimal fit. During stimulation, SmartScan™ provides a constant indication of electrode quality and can be monitored during adjustments (e.g. addition of saline to drying electrodes).
True Current: Clearly indicates the actual current supplied at the moment.What other devices promise, the 1x1 tDCS delivers. The back-lit display can be monitored during stimulation ramp up to confirm that the targeted current intensity is achieved.
Tickle: May be used to supply a very weak current prior to tDCS to help condition the skin.Tickle™ may be used to both condition skin prior to tDCS and for subjects who are anxious about stimulation.
Relax: Allows the clinician to use a simple sliding bar to transiently decrease the current from the pre-set value, for example, based on subject feedback.Based on feed-back from leading clinical centers, Soterix Medical exclusive feature, RELAX™, accommodates subjects who may be anxious when stimulation is initiated or during the course of stimulation. The RELAX™ slider may be adjusted from full to reduced intensity based on subject perception without interrupting or aborting stimulation.
Auto Sham: Simple and intelligent sham waveforms.An automatic stimulation sham feature that is engaged with a simple switch. Auto-sham automatically calculated and produces a sham waveform based on the indicated “real” waveform. For example, for a corresponding real waveform of 1.5 mA and 10 minutes. auto-sham will provide a ramp up/down to 1.5 mA at the start of of stimulation, and again after 10 minutes, with the timer automatically adjusted such that the total run time is exactly matched to the real case. Based on the Soterix Medical Open-Panel™ design principle: with no complicated programming or hidden drop-down menus required.
toDCS: transcranial oscillating Direct Current Stimulation.Request this special mode for the only devices designed for precise modulated direct current stimulation. toDCS includes all the features of standard 1x1 tDCS but provide only oscillating direct current waveforms.
LTE-CT: Limited Total Energy for Clinical Trials.The same advanced power managment system used in the 1x1-Clinical Trial devices available only by special request on the 1x1-tDCS. CT-LTE provides a unique power and voltage limited technology, exclusive to Soterix Medical. For conventional LTE, limited to 1.5 mA, use the 1x1-LTE tDCS model.
⁺EEG: The lowest noise tDCS device ever, for combination with EEG recording:Available only by special request, the +EEG mode on the 1x1-tDCS is a unique device especially designed for combination with EEG recording. All standard 1x1-tDCS devices already provide industry standard precision and low-noise output control. The +EEG mode of the 1x1-tDCS is a unique product only for EEG application where “floor level” noise is required from the simulator for theoretically maximized EEG S/N.

Clinicians and researchers choose the Soterix Medical 1x1 systems to:
Soterix is the gold standard in tDCS devices. We are using ths device for our study and the team at Caputron has been very helpful in helping us get the necessary tools to be able to run our trial.
Designed specfically for research this device is pricey but it is extremely well built, provides continuous feedback and our IRB approved it instantly.
We chose to use this device over the neuroconn device. The support offered by Caputron helped us make the decision as they are incredibly fast in their response and even video called us to help walk us through some of the device features.
Use this device for treatment in my clinic and than recommend to my patients to purchase the Activadose device to continue at home sessions
We use this in our lab with special electrodes for animal stimulation. Amazing device, the current output is incredibly accurate. The contact quality feedback we get from the device is extremely important when dealing with electrodes only a few mm wide.
