tDCS (Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation)
Transcranial direct current stimulation is a form of neuromodulation that uses constant, low direct current delivered via electrodes positioned along the scalp, producing immediate and lasting changes in brain function.
Liv tDCS is a perfect combination of simplicity and functionality. It is incredibly user friendly, portable and well-designed with synchronized and optically isolated 8 channel EEG bring in complete solution for research and clinical applications. It has all the necessary features you look for in a neurodiagnostic device and that is why is recommended by professionals and used by leading universities.

Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) is a non-invasive neuromodulation technique that involves applying a weak electrical current to the scalp to modulate brain activity. By delivering a low-intensity direct current, tDCS can influence cortical excitability and neuronal activity in specific brain regions. tDCS has gained attention in research and clinical settings due to its potential applications in cognitive enhancement, motor rehabilitation, pain management, and psychiatric disorders.
Applications of tDCS:
Cognitive enhancement and learning: tDCS has been studied for its potential to enhance cognitive functions such as attention, memory, language, and problem-solving. It is being explored as a tool for cognitive enhancement in healthy individuals and for improving cognitive deficits in conditions such as Alzheimer's disease, stroke, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
Motor rehabilitation: tDCS is used in combination with motor training to enhance motor recovery and rehabilitation in individuals with stroke, Parkinson's disease, and other motor disorders. It can modulate cortical excitability and promote neuroplasticity, facilitating motor learning and functional improvements.
Pain management: tDCS has shown promise in reducing chronic pain by modulating pain perception and altering neuronal activity in pain-related brain regions. It is being investigated as a non-pharmacological approach for managing conditions such as fibromyalgia, neuropathic pain, and migraine.
Psychiatric disorders: tDCS is being explored as a potential treatment for psychiatric disorders, including depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, and addiction. It can target specific brain regions involved in these conditions and modulate neural circuits associated with mood regulation and emotional processing.
Advantages of tDCS:
Non-invasive and safe: tDCS is a non-invasive technique that involves placing electrodes on the scalp, making it a safe procedure with minimal risk of adverse effects. The electrical currents used in tDCS are generally well-tolerated by most individuals.
Easy administration: tDCS is relatively simple to administer and does not require specialized medical equipment. The electrodes can be easily placed on the scalp, and the stimulation parameters, such as current intensity and duration, can be adjusted based on individual needs.
Cost-effective: Compared to other neuromodulation techniques, tDCS is relatively cost-effective and accessible. The equipment required for tDCS is affordable, making it a potential option for widespread clinical and research applications.
Potential for home-based treatment: tDCS has the advantage of being a portable and user-friendly technique, allowing for potential home-based treatments under proper supervision. This may increase convenience and accessibility for individuals who require frequent or prolonged stimulation sessions.
