Caputron Universal Strap for tDCS

The Caputron Universal tDCS Strap was developed by Caputron engineers to address a broad need for simple tDCS head-gear capable of reliably positioning sponge electrodes on the head. What existed was either lacking in functionality or designed for specialized clinical trials, while most users wanted the reliability of tDCS clinical trials with the flexibility of a general positioning system. The Universal Strap allows for simple and reliable positioning of any combination of sponges electrodes, like those used for tDCS, in any positions on the head. In contrast to a cap, the Universal Strap allows you to see where the electrodes are positioned and to fix saline levels without needing to remove the pads or the strap. Unlike simple elastic bands, the Universal Strap is simple to setup and does not slowly slip over time. We tested over one hundred materials and designs to get the optimal tension without discomfort. Neuromodulation techniques like tDCS are only as good as the head-gear you use. For best results use the Caputron Universal Strap, your one stop solution for all tDCS montages!

How to Use

The Caputron Universal Strap is extremely simple to use and one size does fit all.

1. Push or pull the rivets to loosen or tighten the straps respectively.

2. Place the long strap against your forehead and secure the strap on your head by attaching the velcro strap either under your chin or along the back side of your head.

3. Move the short strap and place it along the top of your head.

4. Strap size may be adjusted by first removing the strap from the rivets. This is done by streching the material over the rivet. Next place the rivet through the desired hole that best fits to your head.

10-10 EEG System Explained

Using the Caputron Universal Strap in combination with the 10-10 EEG system, users are able to match the precision and reproducibility in electrode placement achieved by researchers and clinicians.

The 10-10 EEG system is an internationally recognized method of sectionalizing the scalp. This method is done by assigning a lobe letter, F (Frontal), P (Parietal), T (Temporal), C (Central), or O (Occipital) in combination with a hemisphere number, even for right hemisphere and odd for left hemishphere. For example, F7 stand for Frontal 7 located in the left hemisphere. This system provides a standardized method of comparing electrode positioning between subjects. The locations of the markers are determined using landmarks known as the nasion, the depressed area located just above the bridge of the nose, and the inion, identified by the noticable buldge on the back of the skull. The halfway point between these two points is than marked. Next, the center mark between the left and right pre-auricular points, indicated by the green dot in the figure shown below, is measured and marked. The intersection of these two points is the vertex of your skull. From this point, it is than possible to localize electrode placement in respect to the standardized EEG mapping.

Very Professional Headstrap

Much better than wrapping the electrodes in guaze or using a sports band. I can now see exactly where I am placing the electrodes every time.

A Delightful Surprise

I've worked with a lot of accessories and equipment for tDCS, rTMS, and other electromedical devices over the years and I wasn't really sold on this. Its definitely new and innovative. All of my friends in the industry rave about Caputron and the Universal Strap, but not till I saw for myself... was I delightfully surprised. The engineers they have in the office really know their stuff, I'm happy to have met them and I hope to continue working with their expertise as this field continues to grow.

Custom work

The Rubber is good, sometimes the latex effects my subjects. I also called Caputron's engineers for a custom strap... we have some studies occurring and astonishingly they were able to meet all of our specifications. They are smart and brilliant. I am grateful to have met a team to accomplish our needs

So I'm on the phone with the guys at Caputron.... and all I could remember them saying is "not to worry, we are tracking your package, it should be there in the next couple of days" and all I could think about is the other companies that i have delt with that never could deliver to where I'm at, or that the delivery got lost. The people at Caputron where really helpful, and my students love the universal strap, its been a great addition and one of the best teaching tools I have for my class

It took some getting used to, I've been recently diagnosed and needed to find something user friendly. My doctor suggested a couple different straps, but I liked this one because of the measurements, now I can know exactly where to place the electrodes for my treatment

Needed Accessories

I think this product is great, I wish Caputron had a package deal like it does with the kits, I would have loved to buy this along with electrodes and a device... but even though they don't its still cheaper than its competitors products... plus Caputron's customer service is amazing!

Fascinating!

I'm fascinated by this head strap... It fits well and is customizable, I've been able to get meaningful results from my patients, even the feisty ones who can not stay still.... Its inexpensive but the quality is impeccable.... I guess I am surprised to find such a value

Academics Approve!

I was teaching a course on Neuromodulation on campus, and I had all the students place the universal strap on themselves and conduct small electrostimulations, they were intrigued by the science of it all.... hopefully next semester we can do it again, I just have to see if Caputron sells straps in bulk, that would be a win/win!

Reliable!

It took me a while to understand the strap, but the ruler was a great idea, it helped me put the electrodes in place and also its pretty comfortable, It helps me relax after a long days work. I wish they came in different colors...maybe I could match it to my cloths

    I got an A!

    I had to do a senior project for class, and while I was confused about how to proceed with the experiment, the engineers at Caputron walked me through the process of fastening the strap and placing the electrodes....they are really easy going and knowledgeable, I couldn't do it with out them, THANKS Caputron!!!

    Great Deal!

    I'm constantly on the market looking for quality headgear for my patients, This Universal strap from Caputron does the trick!
    The pro's would be that it fits comfortably to all my patients, the only con I saw is that I wish I had known about Caputron earlier... Its great and with that price you cant go wrong with Caputron
