tDCS

tDCS

Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation

It is a brain stimulation modulation technique that is done by laying two conductors on the scalp which delivers a continuous electric current at very low intensity – between 1-2 mA (milli-Amperes) – for a few minutes. The treatment allows, without pain or annoyance for the patient, a good percentage in favor of symptom improvement.   

 

tDCS is a method that is already largely in use in hospitals and in the ambulatory structures for diagnostic purposes and as an instrument of research.

 

tDCS has a distinct advantage in it’s non-invasive, painless, and simple manner of use. Recent studies show therapeutic potential in the following areas:

  • Resistant Depression
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Post-stroke rehabilitation
  • Pain
  • Insomnia
