Description

The Brain Stimulator v3.0 is the newest version of our most popular tDCS device. For this version, The Brain Stimulator has been completely redesigned from the inside out, and has a ton of amazing new features that we’re sure you’ll love.

Push Buttons & Low Battery Indicator

With elegant push buttons and 5 indicator LED’s, this device is a breeze to use. The “UP” and “DOWN” buttons are used to select between current levels, while the “OFF” button functions as an “instant-off” feature, allowing the user to immediately end a session. Additionally, we’ve added a Low Battery indicator LED, which alerts the user when the battery needs to be replaced. But don’t worry, this device will run for over 90 hours at the highest 2mA setting, so you won’t be doing much battery replacing.

Boost Voltage & Constant-Voltage

Just like our other tDCS devices, The Brain Stimulator v3.0 uses a standard 9-volt battery. But to improve efficiency, special voltage boosting technology has been implemented, allowing the device to operate internally at a full 12-volts (+/-0.5V). So, regardless of the electrode montage placement you’re using, you can be sure the device will produce accurate current. Additionally, we reprogrammed The Brain Stimulator to include a constant-voltage system so the device operates continuously at 12-volts, regardless of battery health. Most tDCS devices currently on the market actually lose effectiveness each time they are powered on.  We’ve implemented Constant-Voltage into The Brain Stimulator v3.0 so you can experience the full effects tDCS can offer each and every time you use it!

Current Stepping & Built-In Timer

The Brain Stimulator v3.0 features intermediate current stepping in-between the four selectable current options. In other words, when you increase the stimulation current from 0.5mA to 1.0mA, the current output pauses momentarily at 0.75mA before reaching 1.0mA. This provides for smoother transitions and an incredibly comfortable tDCS experience. Additionally, you can put away that kitchen timer because we integrated a 30-minute session timer! This new feature gently lowers the output current and turns off the device once the time limit has been reached.

Advanced Safety Features

When it comes to tDCS, don’t settle for a device which doesn’t put your health and safety first. We believe user safety should be a top  concern when designing a tDCS product. Therefore, we integrated some of the most advanced,  industry leading safety technology into The Brain Stimulator v3.0:

Reverse Battery Protection

Prevents the device from operating should the battery be installed incorrectly.

Over-Current Protection

This feature protects the user from unsafe current levels by limiting the device from ever exceeding 2.25mA at any time. If the device detects an Over-Current issue, the device will immediately cut off current flow and the Low Battery LED will flash RED for 5 seconds. After 5 seconds, the device will shut down and lock for optimal user safety.

Over-Voltage Protection

This feature protects the user by preventing the device from ever exceeding 13-volts at any time. If the device detects an Over-Voltage issue, the device will immediately cut off current flow, and the Low Battery LED will flash RED for 5 seconds. After 5 seconds, the device will shut down and lock for optimal user safety.

Session/Safety Timer

After 30-minutes of use, the device will slowly ramp down the current and power off the device. This feature can be used as a session timer so you can “set-and-forget”

    Have suffered with lifelong mood issues and this device helped me considerably. Took about a week to start to notice a difference and in a few weeks felt best I’ve felt in ages. I tried the typical montage for depression but also tried some different ones.

FAQs

The feelings experienced during a typical tDCS session can vary from individual to individual, and can be based on several factors such as as the montage (electrode placement) being used, level of current, and length of the session. The most common sensation associated with tDCS is a slight tingling, itching, or “warming” sensation felt at the source of the electrodes. This sensation can often be suppressed by applying additional saline solution, or by applying slight pressure to the sponge electrodes to help saturate the area. Adding additional saline solution usually requires stopping the session and removing the electrodes, however saline can be applied easily and comfortably during a tDCS session by using a saline solution applicator bottle.

In addition the the above, some individuals claim to experience a metallic taste in their mouth, but usually report it to be temporary and only during the start of the session. Sometimes it is possible to experience the appearance of a very flash of white light, however this is very rare and only possible if the device being used does not feature “ramping,” and the electrodes are positioned near the optical nerve (near the eyes). Almost all of the tDCS devices being produced by reputable companies feature this technology. The Brain Stimulator v3.0 features internal current stepping, which another form of ramping technology which results in an incredibly comfortable tDCS session.

Overall, most people describe tDCS as being a relatively positive experience, and some report not feeling anything at all!

Reported tDCS side effects are very few, and only experienced by a small number of the population. Some side effects associated with tDCS include a tingling or itching sensation during stimulation, a slightly metallic taste, and occasional redness at the site of the electrodes. Any redness usually fades away shortly after stimulation. An even smaller percentage of the population reports a slight headache as a tDCS side effect, however this also usually subsides shortly after the session is concluded. The most least reported tDCS side effect, which is usually attributed to improper use of electrodes or poorly assembled/prepared electrodes, is skin irritation. Sometimes this irritation can take the form of a small skin bump or lesion. However, it is important to note that even this side-effect is quite minor, and will fade away over a short period of time.

tDCS Side effect organized into an informational graphicWe found a great infographic on tDCS side effects located at tdcsbrainstorm.com, which shows that often most side effects can be attributed to the placebo effect. The results shown below depict that based on clinical trials, those individuals receiving “sham” stimulation (fake, no current) often reported the same symptoms at similar severity levels compared with those individuals receiving active stimulation (real tDCS).

Fisher Wallace produces products that are actually quite different from The Brain Stimulator family of tDCS products. While our devices utilize tDCS (Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation), the Fisher Wallace Stimulator utilizes tACS (Transcranial Alternating Current Stimulation). In all of the research we’ve completed on Transcranial Alternating Current Stimulation, it is our opinion that tACS has the potential to produce greater side effects than tDCS, in addition to having far less scientific backing. Furthermore, Antal, Boros et al. (2008) found that tACS does not appear to create significant changes in cortical excitability.

On the other hand, tDCS devices such as The Brain Stimulator v3.0 modulate cortical excitability by either increasing (Anodal stimulation) or decreasing (Cathodal stimulation) the spontaneous firing rate of neurons in the brain. The duality of tDCS’s effects can be seen in scientific studies where researchers focus on increasing desired results (such as cognition), and through alternative tDCS montages, decrease others (such as anxiety or depression).

All of that aside, we do not dissuade customers from considering Fisher Wallace’s products, and in some cases will recommend their products if we believe it is a better fit for the customer. It is important to note however that while most people believe that the Fisher Wallace Stimulator® is FDA Approved, this is not the case. The Fisher Wallace Stimulator is only FDA Cleared, which is very different from approval. While much progress has been made over the years to gain approval, there are currently no CES (Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation) devices which have been granted FDA Approval.

YES! Our products use the exact same technology (tDCS) as the Halo Sport headphones! The only real difference between The Brain Stimulator and Halo Sport (other than price!), is The Brain Stimulator provides the user with the flexibility to position the electrodes in multiple arrangements. The incredible thing about tDCS is that different electrode placements (referred to as “montages”) can produce different results. The Halo Sport headphones utilize fixed electrodes, which are located on the headphone’s bar, placing them directly over the primary motor cortex. While this may be convenient for those who wish to use tDCS for solely for muscle memory, this limits the user and prevents them from exploring other placement positions. We took a different approach and manufactured The Brain Stimulator with free standing electrodes which can be placed anywhere the user desires.

From the very beginning, we have always maintained the belief that the customer should be allowed to use tDCS in any manner they so choose, and that to limit the customer, would be to limit self exploration and creativity.

For best results, we recommend you replace your sponges every two weeks, or after 7 tDCS sessions. Replacement sponges can be found in packs of 10 in our online store. Over time, the sponges within Amrex electrodes can grow brittle and crumble, crack, or split causing an uneven distribution of current. Worn-out sponges can cause an uncomfortable tDCS session, with increased tingling, itching, and sometimes stinging sensations occurring. A good way to tell if your sponges need replacing is if soaking them with saline solution becomes more difficult, if they start to display a darker/brownish color, or begin feeling “stale.” More importantly, if your tDCS sessions become uncomfortable, or you start to notice sensations that maybe you didn’t before, this is also a good sign that your sponges may need replacing. You can find 10-packs of replacement sponge inserts for both the 3×3″ Amrex Electrodes and the 2×2″ Amrex Electrodes through our online store.

Scientific research findings suggest that tDCS causes polarity-dependent alterations in cortical excitability and activity. In other words, of the two electrodes (the positive Anode & the negative Cathode), Anodal stimulation increases cortical excitability, while Cathodal stimulation decreases cortical excitability. These changes in cortical excitability are most likely initiated through respective depolarization and hyper-polarization of the underlying neurons. It appears that this effect can be attributed to a sub-threshold modulation of resting membrane potential, which can persist even after stimulation. In simpler terms, tDCS does not actually cause neurons to fire, but instead increases the likelihood of them firing, by increasing “neuronal excitability”.
