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 ActivaDose® II Iontophoresis Delivery Unit is indicated for the administration of soluble salts or other drugs into the body for medical purposes as an alternative to hypodermic injection in situations when it is advisable to avoid the pain that may accompany needle insertion and drug injection, when it is advisable to minimize the infiltration of carrier fluids, or to avoid the damage caused by needle insertion when tissue is traumatized.
Used by researchers and clinics around the world for tDCS, the Activadose 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.
The ActivaDose® II has two controls to operate dose and current, with optional push-knob or turn capabilities. High-contrast display indicates dose, time and current.

reliable device that is affordable for my patients who require hoe based tDCS
Very good product. Easy to use
I have purchased 2 sets of ActivaDose tDCS Starter Kits from Caputron (one for our NYC apartment, one for our weekend house in the Catskills. The starter kits are very helpful. For someone new to the tDCS treatment regimen, they enable the new user to learn how to assemble the necessary equipment (the tDCS device, head-strap, electrodes, and electrode sponges) without having to guess at which tDCS devices require which ancillary equipment. In addition, I have found the Caputron staff to be helpful and knowledgeable (without, of course, providing medical advice). I would recommend Caputron as a source for tDCS equipment and information.

It does everything I wanted it to. I especially like that it automatically adjusts the amps to meet the setting.
I use this every day along with meditation and I feel more in the "zone" and can just relax. I am usin the muse device with it and I like how I can track my progress.
Even though it is technically an iontophoresis device, we use this in our lab for tDCS and it is an amazing device. The current output is identical to tDCS.
