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).
These affordable sponge inserts are the same ones used in research labs and clinics. They come dry and expand when wet. A pack contains 10 high quality replacement sponges.
These Sponge inserts by Caputron are used as replacement sponges and come in different sizes. The 2"x2" and 3"x3" square sponge inserts fit into their respective size electrodes from Caputron, Amrex, Apex and Mettler. The 1.5" round sponge inserts fit both the BrainDriver and Fisher Wallace electrodes.
Pack comes with 10 sponge inserts.
It is important to properly maintain electrode sponge inserts in order to obtain consistent and uniform current distribution throughout the tDCS electrode, this minimizes the chance of current “hotspots” where current may tend to concentrate at certain areas of the electrode sponge surface due to the constant wear and subsequent degradation of the sponge material through usage—this results in inconsistencies in current density distributions. As a result, it is advised that you replace your electrode sponge inserts every 3-4 uses.
These sponges come dry. As soon as one applies saline solution to them, they immediately absorb the solution and expand. They work best when inserted into the rubber electrode pad first as they expand quickly when wet. They provide excellent contact with and conductivity to the application area.
Saline application - An application of ~7 ml of 0.9% saline to the 2x2 electrode sponge insert, ~15 ml of 0.9% saline to the 3x3 electrode sponge insert, or ~3 mL of 0.9% saline to the 1.5" electrode sponge insert is recommended for optimal stimulation configuration. Saline application should be performed after dry electrode sponge has been inserted into electrode holder.

I have been in a study using the Soterix TDCS for the last six months. The study was a total success for me and because of the results I decided to purchase my own machine. After researching the available machines and discussions with my doctor, we both chose the Caputron TDCS.
The machine is simple to use and comes in a suitable carry case. My results have continued to be excellent.
While the headband that comes with the kit does do the job, I find it to be cumbersome. The reuseable electrodes work well with very little sensation when in use. If you are switching from the Soterix, the Caputron 3 x 3 electrodes are similar in contact surface area with the Soterix 2 x 2 pads.
I have found slightly more discomfort in my neck post treatment, I have no idea why. Neck discomfort has improved with the use of 3 x 3 pads and following each treatment with neck stretches.
The Caputron TDCS has been the right choice for me.
Seems to really be helping my mood. I seem better able to concentrate and less hyper focused on sad and negative thoughts and worries. I have been using for 1 week.
Excellent service and products
tDCS Sponge Insert Replacements
These replacements work well
I would highly recommend them.
My husband purchased 2 inch instead of 3 inch sponges. Caputron's customer service was very understanding and accepted their return.
I was absolutely delighted to experience how fast and efficient you were in handling my order. Thanks a lot.
The price per sponge isn’t any cheaper. But the convenience of only having to purchase 10 sponges at a time versus 50, is a big deal to me financially. Plus Caputron is so easy to deal with. These sponges work very well in a Fisher Wallace device.
