Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) means stimulating the brain directly using small electrical fields. TMS has been proven safe and can be very effective. A non-drug option, TMS only influences the brain and does not alter the rest of the body’s chemistry. It is also a non-invasive method.
To be an effective therapy, TMS needs to reach the part of your brain closely involved in emotion and mood. It’s quite small. Doctors know it by name as the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) and believe it is one of the most inter-connected parts of the brain. You can’t see it. In fact, no-one can, unless you have a brain scan.
TMS used without image-based navigation simply estimates a spot for stimulation. We believe it is important that TMS targets the right location in your brain – otherwise you may not get the benefit you truly need. So, we use the latest science – 3D brain imaging and proven navigation of the TMS.
We think focusing on you as an individual is smart. So we are calling our solution to personalize depression therapy SmartFocusTM TMS.
After the one-time setup process, treatment delivery during your sessions will last approximately 37 minutes. A typical treatment course is 5 sessions per week for 6 weeks, or as your doctor prescribes.
