Advanced technology meets simplicity

The Flow tDCS headset delivers transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) in a small and portable device.

By combining intuitive design that requires minimal setup and training, short sessions that match the length of most TV shows, and proven techniques to reduce depression, our users can better manage their depression on their terms.

What that means for you

home based

At-home treatment. In-clinic results.

The portable, wireless, and small headset brings tDCS technology to wherever you may go. The Flow headset offers a treatment you can take with you from your home to your office to your everyday.


Removing compromise. Introducing convenience.

The 30 minute stimulation sessions easily fit into your schedule whenever it suits you best. You can stimulate while going about your day. Watch your favorite tv show, answer emails, or tidy-up your house. The time is yours.


All the benefits. Few of the side-effects.

Pain free stimulations directly target the root causes of depression. 83% of users found improvements in their depression within 6 weeks of use. Including improvements in mood, focus, and sleep.

Expected results with Flow

Flow uses the MADRS-s questionnaire to assess depression and track changes throughout the treatment. On average, the majority of Flow headset users see significant improvements within 4 to 6 weeks of treatment.

Options to meet your needs

We know starting a new treatment can be overwhelming - which is why we offer you flexibility. Choose between two options:


New to tDCS? Rent-a-Flow

We know brain stimulation may be a new topic for some. For those curious if Flow might be right for them, we offer a rental subscription. This option allows you to try Flow for yourself without paying the full price for the device. Plus we will handle all the logistics of headset pad delivery for you. All you have to focus on is following the treatment schedule.

Since many of our users love their Flow, at 6 months rental subscribers are given the option to purchase the device at a discounted price.


tDCS enthusiast? Own-a-Flow

For those who may have already tried tDCS and know it works for them, or for those that are ready to jump right in, or even those that simply want to own their device and have it for later use: we offer a purchase package. This option comes with a new headset and one set of refill pads (supports 6 weeks of treatment) to get you started.


Why Flow works

Depression may have multiple causes but often is associated with lowered activity in the Dorsolateral Prefrontal Cortex (DLPFC). This area of the brain helps regulate mood, focus, and can even impact sleep and appetite. When this area of the brain fluctuates in activity (more or less active) these functions are affected.

The Flow tDCS headset delivers a weak current (2 mA) to the DLPFC via electrodes placed on the forehead, to restore activity in brain cells which result in a reduction of depressive symptoms. Since Flow is able to directly target specific brain areas involved in depression the side effects are less severe than those from antidepressants.


If you feel more than a tingle

Brain stimulation is not something that is common as a day-to-day activity. It is normal that the sensation feels a bit uncomfortable at first. The majority of users do not experience any side effects, but some users have reported:

  • Skin irritation (<1%)
  • Headaches (~1%)
  • Tinnitus (<0.5%)

These side-effects often subside after a week of treatment when the body has grown more accustomed to the stimulation. If you experience any of these while using Flow, our team is here to help.


What our users say about Flow on TrustPilot

At first I was skeptical of the benefits of non-drug based treatment for depression, but after a few months of using Flow I have been able to stop taking my meds completely. It is a product that truly works and I'm surprised it isn't front page news.

I received my flow headset kit in the mail. The instructions were very easy to follow. The headset itself doesn't hurt but I believe it did help me over the weeks I used it.

Personally, Flow has been so beneficial to me. It has really eased my depression and anxiety symptoms to the point I’ve only got very mild symptoms now.
