Treatment of Depression Depression TMS Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), stimulates the brain, by means of a magnetic field, non-invasively through the skull and nearly without pain (trans lat. = through; cranium lat. = the skull). Proven and used in science and clinical diagnostics for decades, more and more therapeutic potentials for this procedure are arising towards treating neurological and psychiatric disorders. By comparison, TMS is a simple-to-use, mild and gentle, ambulant treatment method. As of now it is often used with patients who do not (or hardly) react to traditional standard...

Depression Depression The most common form of depression shows a typical activity pattern in the brain: neurons in the left prefrontal cortex are inhibited while neurons in the right prefrontal cortex are overactive. Certain TMS applications activate left prefrontal areas. A TMS treatment is particularly suited when medical treatments have been without success or are not an option and electroconvulsive therapy is not yet feasible. TMS can also be applied in combination with traditional treatment methods. Treatment of Depression with TMS Therapy duration: 3-4 weeks, 5 sessions per week Session...

Tinnitus Depression The disturbing sounds usually originate from a compensatory hyperactivity of parts of the cortex. A TMS treatment can control the over-excitation of the auditory cortex and thus stop or at least mitigate the noise. Treatment of Tinnitus with TMS Therapy duration: 2 weeks, 5 sessions per week Session length: 30 minutes Treatment location: Left gyrus of Heschl Equipment: Stimulator: MAG & More PowerMAG Coil: Double coil PMD70-pCool

rO Stroke - Rehabilitation A high neural activity supports the healing process after a stroke. Unfortunately, the damaged area is often subjected to suppressing signals from the healthy cerebral hemisphere which is hyperactive due to compensation. TMS procedures usually indirectly support the neural functionality in the affected area by either inhibiting the overactive hemisphere or by directly stimulating both hemispheres, synchronously activating the affected hemisphere. O Rehabilitation with TMS Therapy duration: 10 sessions, 1 session per day Session length: 25 minutes TMS, 45 minutes physical...

Pain Depression Neuropathic pain such as trigeminal or phantom limb pain originates within the nervous system itself. Usually, this type of pain is treated by actively stimulating the motor cortex. Pain relief often occurs after the first TMS treatment and can last for several weeks. Treatment of Chronic Pain with TMS Therapy duration: Up to 10 sessions, 1 session per day Session length: Between 10 and 24 minutes Treatment location: Motor cortex Equipment: Stimulator: MAG & More PowerMAG Coil: Double coil PMD70-pCool

Migraine Depression Migraines cyclically lower the quality of life. TMS therapy is split up into acute pain treatment and prophylaxis. Both approaches show effects. The treatment of acute migraine attacks is recommended for patients with aura, while the prophylactic method shows success in both patient groups. Treatment of Migraine with TMS Therapy duration (Prophylaxis) 3 sessions on alternate days Session length (Prophylaxis): 8 minutes Treatment location: Primary motor cortex Prognosis: Equipment: Stimulator: MAG & More PowerMAG Coil (Prophylaxis): Double coil PMD70-pCool

Incontinence- It is important to strengthen the muscles of the pelvic base for any type of incontinence. Magnetic stimulation can support training and, if required, replace it. The treatment coil is placed on the seat of a chair and the patient can remain dressed. The procedure is more comfortable than traditional electric stimulation and is usually painless. O Treatment of Incontinence with TMS Therapy duration: 6 weeks, 18 sessions Session length: 20 minutes Treatment location: Pelvic base muscles Prognosis: Equipment: Stimulator: MAG & More PowerMAG Coil: Round coil PMR-Incontinence

Paresis Depression In partial paralysis, peripheral magnetic stimulation powerfully activates nerves and muscles on the surface as well as subjacent ones. It loosens hypertension and allows for functional training. This method also alleviates pain in the locomotive system. TMS can be applied as an alternative method or in combination with traditional methods. TMS combined with physiotherapy Therapy duration: 2-4 weeks, 2-5 sessions per week Session length: 10 minutes Treatment location: affected areas or nerve pathways proximal to the target muscles Prognosis: Equipment: Stimulator: MAG & More...

Schizophrenia – auditory hallucinations A hypofunction of the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex is typical for this disease. Stimulating this part of the brain with TMS couteracts the hypofunction and supports treatment. Additionally in case of auditory hallucinations, affected auditory regions in the temporoparietal cortex are hyperactive and can be suppressed with TMS. Treatment of Schizophrenia with TMS Therapy duration: 3 weeks, 15 sessions Session length: 13 minutes Treatment location: Dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) Prognosis: Equipment: Stimulator: MAG & More PowerMAG Coil: Double...

Anxiety- Suppressing activity of the right dorsolateral prefrontal cortex with TMS can be efficacious towards mitigating panic disorders. TMS procedures that activate prefrontal areas focally or extensively can also be applied for treating post-traumatic stress disorders. O Treatment of Anxiety with TMS Therapy duration: 10 sessions over 2 weeks Session length: 20 minutes Treatment location: right dorsolateral prefrontal cortex Equipment: Stimulator: MAG & More PowerMAG Coil: Double coil PMD70-pCool
