The "YES I CAN" tDCS Device
The “Yes I CAN” Device
What if I tell you that there is a way that you can:
- Solve a nagging problem you’ve had faster,
- Learn a new skill more easily,
- Master a language more quickly,
- Concentrate solely on one thing, without constantly checking your cell phone, or laptop,
- Boost your mental powers,
- Increase your reaction time – as in better gaming scores!
You would probably think that this is yet another internet hoax, right? Well, this is not a hoax and it has been shown by myriads of studies and research conducted by neuroscientists at universities around the globe.
Our brains are rather complex working machines that though fixed in certain aspects can be upgraded from time to time. The new upgrade comes in a form of tDCS, or transcranial direct current stimulation, a scientific method that stimulates the brain, which is a core aspect of our intelligence, with a low-level electrical current.
Studies have shown that this means having more enhanced mental functions, including working memory, concentration, motivation and, as a new study shows, creativity.
Most of the studies conducted were in clinical settings and have been shown to have no serious side-effects, while providing many benefits. This is why TheBrainDriver was created. This tiny “Yes I Can” machine has proven to be what you need to unleash your true potential.
Consisting of electronics, one battery, headband and two electrodes, TheBrainDriver is a portable tDCS device that helps you boost your cognitive powers by flicking on a switch.
You simply place two electrodes, anode and cathode, at particular places of your skull, secure them with a headband and then flick the switch to let the low level current flow. As people exhibit different levels of sensitivity, there are four power settings incorporated within the device, 0.5, 1.0, 1.5 and 2.0 mA.
As specialized functions of the brain are in various locations, before you just start randomly putting on electrodes, you need to know all about montages and placements. For example, if you are a gamer looking to sharpen your focus, you should stimulate either your motor cortex or visual one, which means that electrodes should be generally placed at the top of your head. This is just one of the montages and is not specific enough. For a full list of all the possible montages (specific electrode placements), as well as the studies conducted, please check this article: How to use tDCS Montages and Brain Mapping Diagrams
Once the electrodes are placed, a session should last anywhere from 20 to 30 minutes, though most research show that to get the best results, you should use TheBrainDriver for about 20 minutes, every workday for 20 days. TheBrainDriver includes an electronic shutdown timer for 20 and 30 minute sessions. This is an important feature that we consider crucial for safety and effectiveness. Afterall, you certainly do not want to doze off and fall asleep with your tDCS device attached and running for hours on end.
Supercharging your brain with an ultra-light jolt of electricity seems to have been the key to many success stories. However, as there is no study broad enough to be considered for a meta-analysis, this fact hasn’t stopped many tDCS enthusiasts to use it regularly. As with most things, please conduct your own research and consult with your health care provider before use. We would like to hear from you. What are your experiences with tDCS? Have you already tried the “Yes I Can” device?
