Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) Therapy

A Guide to (tDCS) Therapy

Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is a type of non-invasive brain stimulation that can be used in the treatment of depression, OCD, Schizophrenia, Fibromyalgia and for cognitive, speech or motor symptoms related to conditions such as multiple sclerosis, stroke, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s, and other movement disorders. Maarga Mind Care tDCS Program offers tDCS sessions tailored to your individual needs and therapeutic goals under psychologist and Psychiatrist supervision.

During tDCS, a low-grade electric current is applied through electrodes placed on the scalp using a headset. tDCS can be used to increase, or, in some uses, decrease, brain activity in the region that is stimulated. This treatment can be used to relieve symptoms over time, for instance in depression, OCD and some neuro disorders to recover motor, cognitive, or language functions, the stimulation can be paired together with training activities to increase the benefit. For instance, you can complete the stimulation while doing exercises as directed by a therapist, or using one of cognitive or speech and language training.

Features

Precise control of current intensity

The Caputron tDCS enables a precise control of delivered current intensity during the stimulation session. In case of patient´s discomfort, the current intensity can be immediately lowered without stopping the stimulation.

 

Continuous impedance control

A continuous real-time monitoring of skin impedance informs the operator about the contact quality. The auto-stop safety function pauses the stimulation automatically in case of irritability on the skin.

 β€‹

Easy setup of stimulation parameters

The stimulation parameters are fully programmable and can be easily set up on the main panel (current intensity) and in the setup menu (stimulation time, pause time, number of stimulation cycles, ramp time). The selected parameters remain saved in the device after switching the device off.

 

Real-time display

​The selected parameters and time remaining are visible on the display in real time informing the operator about the phase of stimulation procedure.  

 

Real and Sham modes of stimulation

The device also has a Sham mode intended for research applications when placebo stimulation and blinding the patient are required.
