Is foc.us FDA approved? No. The focus gamer headset offers no medical benefits, is not a medical device, and is not regulated by the FDA.
- When will my headset ship? If ordered today your headset should ship by the end of July 2013. Subsequent production orders are scheduled from October 2013.
- Will Android be supported? Yes, we are fully committed to providing Android support as soon as Android contains the required bluetooth 4.0 apis. We ♥ Android.
- Is the headset safe? The focus headset has been tested to all required regulatory standards including CE Safety standard EN60601-2-10: 2001 and EN60601-1: 2006.
- What does the headset do? The headset passes a small electric current <2.05mA through the prefrontal cortex of the wearer.
- Who should not use foc.us? The headset is not a toy, is not recommended for under 18s, epilepsy suffers or people with implants. It should not be used in the treatment of any medical conditions.

Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) is a technique of noninvasive brain stimulation established nearly 75 years ago. Today, tDCS is seeing a resurgence in both the clinical and academic research fields. Through lectures and hands-on practice, this course will introduce students to the theoretical aspects of tDCS and help develop proper skills for practical application.
To register for this course, first complete the online application on the Berenson-Allen Center website. You can access the online application here.
The Biocurrent kit is a safe, easy-to-use, apparatus that supplies regulated current through sponge electrodes. By using a unique method of regulation (CRDs), the Biocurrent kit provides regulated current at 1.0mA, 1.5mA, and 2.0mA in a simple to use plug in kit. No soldering is required, all the items necessary to produce biological current are included in the kit (Battery pack, Regulator boxes, cables, sponge electrodes, and elastic band to fix to the body).
For increased safety the cable connectors are specifically chosen to only fit one way and because of inline resistor, current is limited in case of short or failure.
Go to The Biocurrent kit site to find out more and to purchase your device.
I decided to borrow Keith’s design one more time and build a simple tDCS device into an old pill bottle, just to show how easy it is to build a current regulated tDCS device – and to show how small they can be. My latest creation could easily be carried in a pocket or tucked in a hat. I call it “tDCS in a Bottle” and yes – I decided to copyright the name – hey why not?
My simple circuit consists of a type 25A 12v volt battery, a 2.2 k Ohm resistor, a current regulating diode (CRD), a pill bottle, and some lead wires. You could build one yourself in 15 minutes or less!
www.biocurrentkit.com has just started offering a battery operated 1 to 2 mA kit that is offered not as a tDCS device (tDCS doesn’t even appear in their instruction sheet and barely on the web site), but as a regulated very low current DC supply. What you do with it is up to you. Biocurrent sent me an evaluation unit to dig into and I have to say, I’m impressed with the simplicity of the kit – and that it does exactly what Biocurrent says it will do – supply 1, 1.5, or 2 mA current.
