The Caputron Universal tDCS Strap is the best tDCS strap on the market. Featuring a built in ruler, this tDCS strap is capable of providing stimulations with the same precision and reproducibility used in clinical tDCS trials. The strap is compatible with all electrodes and sponges. Comprised of rubber, not latex, the Caputron Universal Strap can also be fully customized.

How to Use
The Caputron Universal Strap is extremely simple to use and one size does fit all.
1. Push or pull the rivets to loosen or tighten the straps respectively.
2. Place the long strap against your forehead and secure the strap on your head by attaching the velcro strap either under your chin or along the back side of your head.
3. Move the short strap and place it along the top of your head.
4. Strap size may be adjusted by first removing the strap from the rivets. This is done by streching the material over the rivet. Next place the rivet through the desired hole that best fits to your head.
10-10 EEG System Explained
Using the Caputron Universal Strap in combination with the 10-10 EEG system, users are able to match the precision and reproducibility in electrode placement achieved by researchers and clinicians.
The 10-10 EEG system is an internationally recognized method of sectionalizing the scalp. This method is done by assigning a lobe letter, F (Frontal), P (Parietal), T (Temporal), C (Central), or O (Occipital) in combination with a hemisphere number, even for right hemisphere and odd for left hemishphere. For example, F7 stand for Frontal 7 located in the left hemisphere. This system provides a standardized method of comparing electrode positioning between subjects. The locations of the markers are determined using landmarks known as the nasion, the depressed area located just above the bridge of the nose, and the inion, identified by the noticable buldge on the back of the skull. The halfway point between these two points is than marked. Next, the center mark between the left and right pre-auricular points, indicated by the green dot in the figure shown below, is measured and marked. The intersection of these two points is the vertex of your skull. From this point, it is than possible to localize electrode placement in respect to the standardized EEG mapping.
