Portable Device for Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) for Use in Home Electrotherapy
Keywords:electrotherapy, transcranial direct current stimulation (tES, tDCS), cortical excitability, brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), brain disorders, neurodegenerative diseases, home therapy, portable device
This paper briefly describes several important approaches in electrotherapy treatment, with special reference to the methods of applying non-invasive direct currents of small strengths in treatments of transcranial direct current stimulation, then presents the initial research that will serve scientifically and in the practice of further work as a basis and necessary preparation for developing and making a prototype of portable electrotherapy device for transcranial stimulation using direct currents, feasible in home conditions. The paper presents previous experimental results and provides an overview of possible future achievements and further development in suggested direction.
