Because it was released mid-August of 2019, there are no reviews of this tDCS device yet.
This device is priced similarly to those out on the market that target individuals, and for such a new and innovative addition to tDCS devices, it is certainly worth the price.
Ease of Use
The LIFTiD device is seamless to use. Individuals simply have to prepare a salt water solution with the accessories, dampen the sponges for the session, and wear the device for 20 minutes. With detailed instructions, the device can be effectively used by anyone. Unlike classic tDCS devices, there are no electrodes, other wiring, or readings that need to be taken care of, thus, reducing the work needed for the individual to do when starting a session. They heavily market their Super Simple Setup with their automatic 20-minute timer.
The LIFTiD has utilized the new and seamless headset/headband-style design that many modern tDCS devices are using nowadays. It is a lightweight and modern headband/headset that is deemed ‘lightweight’ and ‘fashionable’. LIFTiD seems to talk a lot about the device’s aesthetics, ease of use, and benefits of tDCS, allowing the average joe to feel more comfortable using this tDCS device. The company also provides an extensive manual that helps you set up, fit the band on the forehead, and has information on beginning a session, troubleshooting, and more. The starter kit includes the device, 6 sponges, a headband placement mirror, a charging cable, a plastic bottle and spoon, as well as a storage bag with user manual.
There is a quick start manual included with a purchase of the device, as well as further reading material available on their website getliftid.com. They have a small FAQ section on their website that talks about what tDCS is and who can use LIFTiD, as well as information on tDCS’ safety as well as instructional videos to complement the instructions for use on their site. They have their own website with a phone number, a physical address in New York, a fill-out contact box, and an email. There is a 1 year warranty provided. There is free shipping available for those in the continental US, but those who reside outside of the US will need to pay fees for duties and shipping.
