Customer Reviews Deemed the gold standard in tDCS devices despite its price. The device is said to be extremely well-built and has accurate current output.
“Soterix is the gold standard in tDCS devices. We are using the device for our study and the team at Caputron has been very helpful in helping us get the necessary tools to be able to run our trial.”
Cost$159.99 / Varies Unsure. Soterix is private about the costs of the product and requires a request of a price quote. This could be because the device is industry standard, and is professionally used in clinical trials.
Ease of Use The easy reproducible set-up is complimented by exclusive features such as the Smartscan, providing a continuous visual indication of electrode quality during and before stimulation, a clear indication of true current, a tickle option to prime the skin prior to a tDCS session, a Relax function to slowly decrease current, and Auto Sham, which automatically calculates and provides a sham waveform based on the real waveform. These very special features are not available on any other tDCS device on the market.
Features/Accessories provided The Soterix 1×1 tDCS Device provides an elaborate and clean panel that includes a time remaining screen, a TRUE current back-lit display, a clear indication of electrode contact quality, and buttons and switches for the SHAM, RELAX, and TICKLE features described above. The device also has compatibility with monitoring technology.
