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).

Neurostim tES device is a compact battery powered stimulator that can be connected to your PC via USB. Neuorstim is intended for both therapeutic and research use, with a study mode for double blind sham stimulation. Neurostim can store up to 250 sessions and provides continuous monitoring of electrode impedance.
Neurostim is intended for noninvasive transcranial electrical stimulation (tES) of brain structures with a low current of up to 5 mA. The current generates the electrical field, changing the brain cortex excitability. Such brain activity is used to study the functional state of the cortex including the cortical excitation/inhibition mechanisms. tES studies are being conducted on the therapeutic effect of different disorders including fibromylagia, major depressive episode, addiction/craving, lower limb neuropathic pain and recovery of motor functions after stroke and brain injuries.
This device can be used both in inpatient and outpatient conditions, in research purposes and also by patient without medical staff assistance. The electronic unit is intended to generate the electrical pulses of specified waveform, duration and repetition rate. The pulses are delivered to a patient via stimulating electrodes positioned at patient’s head according to the required technique. The stimulator can operate in autonomous mode and powered from batteries or can be controlled via USB and powered via USB port.
The user-friendly interface, preset protocols and functionality allow performing a treatment both in outpatient and inpatient environments. The device's ease-of-use ensures the outpatient treatment in just 3 steps. Before the start of the sessions the tDCS specialist should customize the treatment course and specify the list of the stmulation sessions (up to 250). These treatment sessions can be performed at home. Each time the patient switches on the stimulator, Neurostim offers automatically to run the preset stimulation session scheduled for the particular day.
All-around versatility, flexible settings, customization of sessions with the device and PC ensure the maximum research needs.
