Magstim® TMS Therapy involves a series of repetitive, brief, and highly focused magnetic pulses, designed to stimulate brain cells. TMS is typically prescribed to adult patients when antidepressants have failed, or the side effects are intolerable. In comparison to antidepressants, Magstim® TMS Therapy is a non-invasive outpatient
procedure with few known side effects1.
Magstim® TMS Therapy systems offer versatility with a range of treatment protocols including a 3-minute treatment option.
In depressed patients, the electrical activity in certain areas of the brain is shown to be reduced.
Using TMS targeted at these areas, we aim to re-awaken these cells, increasing brain activity to normal levels.TMS uses a focused electromagnet to rapidly pulse a magnetic field to the targeted area.The magnetic pulses induce an electrical current in the brain, stimulating the cells into activity.
