A question that we are getting a lot is if XCSITE 100 can be used outside the lab. Our answer has two parts:
Use of XCSITE 100 as a clinical device (at home)?
We only sell the device to researchers, for regulatory reasons. So if you are a patient interested in tDCS/tACS, we are afraid we are unable to help since there is no FDA clearance of tDCS/tACS for the treatment of any disorder. You will find private practices that offer tDCS and also some older tCS devices that got grandfathered in by the FDA when they started regulating medical devices in seventies. All this is outside the scope of our company.
Use of XCSITE 100 as a research device (at home)?
If you are a researcher and would like to study tDCS/tACS at the homes of your study participants, our answer is a qualified "yes". The device is easy to operate thanks to our (what we think very smooth) app and the research mode, where any type of stimulation can be manually configured, is password protected. In essence, you need to trust the participant enough to use the provided stimulation codes as prescribed by you. You can go and use the encrypted log files to verify correct use of the device (at least in terms of the stimulation applied). In other words, if you trust your participants, this could work very well!
