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).
Attentive Living through Energizing, Restorative Technology (ALERT) is an effective, alternative therapy for ADD/ADHD which utilizes AVE technology to settle hyperactivity, promote relaxation, and can even improve mood & logical thinking.
The DAVID ALERT system provides safe, gentle and effective audio-visual entrainment (AVE). Studies have shown that ADD behaviors were reduced significantly and reading improved with AVE.
The ALERT devices are the result of 20 years of combined expertise and research by Michael Joyce of Personal Resource Strategies and David Siever of Mind Alive Inc.
Michael Joyce has completed two studies using the DAVID systems to treat ADD/ADHD. His first study involved 30 primary school children from two schools (which was published in the Journal of Neurotherapy) and his second study included 204 children from seven schools, which he completed while he was the Director of Neurotechnology at A Chance to Grow, a special-needs charter school in Minneapolis.
Both studies showed that ADD behaviors were reduced significantly and reading improved with AVE. Michael used the DAVID’s unique patented field stimulation ability to generate a different frequency in each hemisphere of the brain. With this technique and a Symptom Survey checklist developed by Michael, he was able to create DAVID sessions that could stimulate or calm the left, right or both hemispheres depending on the symptoms checked off by the child’s parents.Over time, Michael has refined and developed these sessions based on the checklist to produce benefits in specific areas. Now, all of this expertise has been put into the DAVID ALERT.
Tru-Vu Omniscreen EyesetOur unique Tru-Vu Omniscreen Eyesets were carefully designed to provide you with the most effective and safe light and sound experience. The Tru-Vu Omniscreen Eyesets for the PAL use eight blue-tinted white LEDs mounted over a silver reflector behind a translucent screen. This disperses the light evenly. Our new Tru-Vu Omniscreen Eyesets are specially designed to allow for the left and right visual fields of each eye to be individually stimulated rather than the entire eye. With the Tru-Vu Omniscreen Eyesets, the lights flash into the left visual fields of both eyes, then alternately flashes into the right visual fields of both eyes. This approach allows the ability to stimulate either visual cortex with a frequency different from the other visual cortex. For example, a person who functions strongly from the left brain could have 8 Hz stimulated into the right visual field (and therefore the left brain) to slow down left brain function and have 18 Hz stimulated into the left visual field to increase right brain function.
Isochronic Pulsed Tones, Binaural Beats and ChimeThe tones of the DAVID ALERT are evenly spaced, are of equal pitch and are turned on and off at a specified rate. This is important to enhance the effectiveness of audio entrainment.
15 Preset SessionsDesigned by Michael Joyce exclusively for the ALERT
Soft-OffThe gradual lowering of the lights and tones at the end of the session prevents a startle response (also known as somnatic shock). Soft-Off ensures that relaxation and other benefits carry over even after a session has ended.
Easy-To-Find Power, Intensity and Volume ButtonsThe buttons are raised so that you can make the necessary adjustments easily and quickly, even with your eyes closed.
Battery Power IndicatorAt a quick glance you can tell if your battery has enough power to run your session. New eyeset technology allows for much longer life for your 9-volt battery.
