Depression is a mental illness that affects a large portion of the population. Treating and healing it has become a reality, thanks to a revolutionary method that helps individuals with depression reclaim their lives.
With the Flow tDCS device, you can address depression without drugs and without a prescription. The device's application (app) includes a tDCS application program and behavioral therapy. The therapy targets various causes of depression.
No drugs, no side effects!
The Flow tDCS device is trusted by the NHS (England) and Well Pharmacy and has an excellent rating on Trustpilot.
What is the tDCS (transcranial direct current stimulation) used by the Flow device?
It is a non-invasive stimulation technique, without pain. This technique uses gentle electric currents to restore brain activity and reduce depressive symptoms.
The Flow tDCS device enhances the brain's natural signaling in the prefrontal cortex (also known as DLPFC). This area of the brain is targeted by the device during treatment, as it has been proven to be less active when a person displays depression symptoms.
The Flow tDCS device stimulates with a continuous current (2 mA) in the appropriate area of the brain, through electrodes placed on the forehead.
What is Behavioral Therapy?
Behavioral therapy is a therapeutic approach that aims to reinforce positive and healthy habits that can shape behaviors. The behavioral therapy program of the Flow tDCS device has been developed by authorized psychologists and supports the creation and integration of healthy habits proven to help reduce depression.
How does Flow tDCS work?
In people facing depression, there are lower levels of activity in the frontal area of the brain. This area is responsible for regulating mood, sleep, and motivation.
The neurons of the brain are activated by signals from the Flow tDCS device, which sends gentle electrical pulses to the appropriate areas. This results in the reduction of depression symptoms.
Available to everyone!
Until now, tDCS therapy was expensive and only available to healthcare professionals. Now, you can obtain it for treatment at home.
When the device is used independently, without a doctor's supervision, there is a therapy program within the app that is divided into two phases: Activation (weeks 1-3) and Enhancement (weeks 4+).
For healthcare professionals!
The Flow tDCS provides a platform where the device can connect to the professional's account to have the necessary data for each examinee. It allows for the receipt of a personalized therapy program, the depiction of each patient's progress, among other data. Ideal for patients who are not allowed drug treatment (postpartum depression, etc.).
