SKU: BH469 Categories: ,


This kit requires the Oasis Pro Device to work, for the full kit please check out the Oasis Pro which can perform TDCS, MET and CES Oasis Pro Sessions (Sold Separately): Oasis Pro TDCS CES MET Session Capabilities When a DC current is applied over the scalp with the intention of altering neuronal activity, it is known as transcranial DC stimulation. tDCS is effective in modulating spontaneous neuronal firing. tDCS at intensities of 1 milliamp applied for roughly 10 minutes has been shown to either excite or inhibit the sensori-motor cortex, with the effects lasting over an hour. Excitation is achieved by anodal (+) stimulation, while inhibition is achieved by cathodal (-) stimulation. Anodal stimulation has also been shown to increase both beta and gamma activity in the visual cortex, while cathodal stimulation has decreased beta and gamma activity. Stimulation is generated by putting a wet cloth, cotton ball or sponge on the scalp over the brain region to be treated and a sponge or cotton ball on the shoulder or the face. The tDCS sessions deliver a maximum intensity of 2.35 milliamps at DC. tDCS is being used for the treatment of many conditions, including depression. CAUTIONS: tDCS is very powerful and if applied improperly, can result in minor side effects. Therefore, the sessions for tDCS will only be released to customers after signing a waiver.
