Customers comment on the stark differences between the ActivaDose medical grade build and other tDCS products. Users report positive results for depression, concentration, meditation, and brain damage.

“It works well for my son’s treatment of the residual effects of the stroke he had, caused by pneumoccocal meningitis. He is speedily progressing in regaining his working/short term memory, & reducing the expressive & receptive aphasia. He is very happy with the results from this treatment. I like the size 3 x 3 for it covers more areas of his brain. Excellent device!”
