This pair of cables, with 4.0mm banana plugs on both ends, can be used to connect your CES treatment electrode to the meter for precise monitoring of the current.
The required current is at least 2.0 mA for detectable results.
CES / tDCS Metering
Here’s how you connect the multimeter to the system:
When doing CES treatment, the multimeter selector switch is turned into the AC ammeter setting, or A~. Due to its reversing polarity, it doesn’t matter which ear does the electrode go. There’s no problem with polarity because it is reversing all the time.
So, the electrodes can be placed behind the ear, or clipped in the lobule of the ear.
What is critical though, is to place the negative cable of the CES device to the GND socket of the meter, at all times. This will prevent any accident later on when the treatment is switched into the tDCS modality.
When doing tDCS treatment, the multimeter selector switch is turned into the DC. ammeter setting, or A-. The negative cable from the CES device is plugged into the GND socket of the meter.The other cable that will be coming out of the mA socket of the meter will serve as the cathode, or the negative electrode.
The positive cable from tDCS device, or the anode, will go to the specific location in the head. The actual placement of the electrodes for tDCS will depend on the actual objective of the user.
The best option is not to place the negative electrode anywhere in the head. Dr. Robert O. Becker emphasized that the farther one measures the voltage away from the head, the more negative the reading is. This suggests that the head should be reserved for anode, or positive polarity only.
