Sponge electrodes are the most prominent type of electrodes preferred by leading researchers and clinicians for applying tDCS.
Caputron tDCS electrodes are comprised of a research grade corrosion resistant conductive metal mesh insert with 4 mm banana connection, high quality sponge insert and a flexible silicone housing. We offer Caputron electrodes in the standard 3″ x 3″ size.
The flexible highly conductive material and elastic silicone shell allow the electrodes to more easily contour to the shape of the head or body, providing better contact quality between the electrode and the user.
Caputron tDCS electrodes require no little to no maintenance. For optimal current flow, we recommend changing electrodes after 3 months of use. The internal sponge inserts should be changed every few sessions, or when they begin to show signs of degradation.
Caputron Electrode Advantages:
- Flexible design allows for optimal contact quality, even with areas containing thick hair
- Silicone material is bacteria resistant and makes sponge removal easy.
- Conductive metal mesh insert provides excellent electrical conductivity.
- Very low maintenance required
Combine these electrodes with one of our electrode positioning headbands, caps, or armbands for a complete set!
Caputron Electrode Care:
Caputron tDCS electrodes require very little maintenance. For optimal current flow, sponge inserts should be changed after 2-3 sessions, and we recommend replacing your electrodes every 2-3 months.
To increase the life of your electrodes, sponges may also be removed from the housing, rinsed and left to dry.
Electrodes are sold in pairs for convenience 🙂
