Can tDCS be safely administered at home?

Home tDCS Device

tDCS can be safely administered at home Patients undergoing tDCS
treatment through TMSCA receive equipment on loan, and training
on self-administration. Treatment is conducted under the supervision
of our clinical team.

Fits within daily activities Patients are encouraged to
continue with normal activities like reading or watching TV while 
receiving treatment – activating the brain during treatment can
help maximise the effect.


Well tolerated.
Trials to date have reported tDCS to be well tolerated and safe, with
no major adverse side effects when patients are carefully screened and stimulation is given
within recommended parameters, and with careful technique.
