Transcranial Direct Current Stimulator E1
tDCS (Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation) is one of non-invasive brain stimulation (NIBS), which is considered a safe form of brain stimulation with minimal risks of injury. It transfers weak electrical current (0-2 mA) to specific regions of the brain via electrodes on the scalp, by either activating (the positive electrode) or inhibiting (the negative electrode) cortical activity to change neural activity and cortical excitability.
As being a low-cost, small-size, and patient-wearable equipment, tDCS allows distribution of machines for home use, which is not the case for rTMS. Its safety, effectiveness and affordability make it significant and widespread to the home-used market.
