Advanced set for rTMS
Advanced therapeutic configuration of Neuro-MS/D covers all clinical needs of rTMS practitioners. Convenient system on a trolley includes high-frequency and high-intensity stimulator with effective cooling system and convenient flexible arm for coil positioning.
20 Hz stimulation with 100% intensity
Advanced therapeutic configuration provides the possibility to increase the maximum effective stimulation frequency (the frequency when each stimulus in series has 100% intensity of motor threshold for most people) fourfold (up to 20 Hz) owing to extra power supply unit.
Number of pulses generated during one session – up to 10 000
The cooling unit and cooled coils (included in the delivery set) are developed to avoid overheating of coils during the long treatment session. The cooling unit itself is a tank with the cooling liquid, the pump running the cooling liquid through the coil and the fridge. The unit allows increasing continuous operation of up to 10 000 pulses without overheating. Practically, it means that stimulator can operate for hours without overheating.
Neuro-MS.NET software to control magnetic stimulator
This delivery set includes the special Neuro-MS.NET software that allows customizing any stimulation protocols. This software keeps patient database, determines motor response threshold and controls the stimulation courses and sessions. You can perform the stimulation according to pre-defiend protocols and also create own ones or customize the preset stimulation programs.
In advanced therapeutic configuration the rapid stimulation protocols with up to 100 Hz frequency as well as theta-burst stimulation (TMS) are available.
Preset protocols are used for the treatment of depression, Parkinson disease, stroke, tinnitus, etc.
3-minute depression treatment protocol
Now the Neuro-MS.NET is equipped with a new short depression treatment protocol.
In accordance with the clinical tests performed by leading research hospitals in Canada*, in patients with treatment-resistant depression, iTBS was non-inferior to 10 Hz rTMS for the treatment of depression. Both treatments had low numbers of dropouts and similar side-effects, safety, and tolerability profiles. With iTBS, the number of patients treated per day with current rTMS devices can be increased several times without compromising clinical effectiveness.
So, the 3-minute treatment is as safe and effective for the depression treatment as the conventional TMS.
Application: psychiatry, neurology
The principle of therapeutic magnetic stimulation is based on the following. The magnetic stimulator uses the magnetic pulses of short duration. The emerging high-intensity electromagnetic field easily penetrates through clothes, cranium bones and soft tissues. It exerts influence upon deep nerve centers, peripheral nerves, cerebral and spinal cord, which is inaccessible for other kinds of stimulation.
This stimulation is commonly used to treat depressions (including severe and drug-resistant), tinnitus. Besides, there are positive and encouraging results obtained at rehabilitation of post-stroke patients and other neurological and psychiatric diseases.
Treatment of depressions, schizophrenia, obsessive-compulsive disorders, post-traumatic stress, manias and other psychiatric disorders.
Treatment of central and peripheral nervous system disorders: neuropathic pain, stroke, migraine, Parkinson disease, epilepsy, tinnitus, etc.
