It’s no secret that I’m frustrated by how hard it is to get the tDCS ball rolling as an accepted, working, safe technology that can improve the lives of millions (and save a bunch of lives, too.) Apparently others agree and are working diligently to bring tDCS devices to market – working as best they can to avoid the “medical device” label that drags the FDA into the loop.
I mentioned the rather creative very low current DC supply from http://www.biocurrent.com in my last post. This week, great news came from http://www.foc.us that they are taking orders for their new, really cool tDCS headset. It sells for about $250 and has a tDCS accessory kit that adds $50 to the price. Deliveries are scheduled to start in July. The Foc.US device looks good, has a great feature set, and allows you to control it directly or with an iOS device! It’s marketed as a gamer enhancement device but has an accessory kit for full tDCS capability.
