Personalized Repetitive
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation
(PrTMS)

TMS is a drug-free, non-invasive therapy that has been evolving and advancing for decades. TMS treatment uses magnetic pulses to stimulate electrical activity in the brain’s neurons. Non-personalized versions of this therapy have been cleared by the FDA for use in treating a limited number of conditions, including Major Depressive Disorder, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, and pain associated with certain migraine headaches.

Brainwave Activity

PrTMS® incorporates an assessment of a patient’s unique brain electrical patterns to construct an image of neuronal communication activity. Qualitative and quantitative patient data are then used to create a neuromodulation treatment plan tailored specifically to that patient, which is then verified and approved by a qualified PrTMS® provider.

Brainwave Activity

You would not prescribe the same dose or even the same drug to every patient — even if they had the same symptoms or condition. The same should be true with TMS therapy. However, with conventional TMS, essentially the same therapy is delivered to every patient — regardless of their condition, circumstance, or degree of brainwave frequency disturbance.

Normal brainwave frequencies range from 8 to 12 hertz, with the exact number varying from individual to individual. Conventional TMS therapy often takes a one-size-fits-all approach by seeking to align patients to the average – about 10 hertz. In contrast, PrTMS® therapy is designed to align brainwaves to the patient’s personal optimal frequency.

Brainwave Activity

n the field of mental health, neurocognitive tests are the standard for evaluating how patients feel and respond to treatment. While this is key subjective data, PrTMS® goes further to also collect electroencephalogram (EEG) brainwave activity data for an objective look at how a patient’s brain is functioning. Along with neurocognitive test data, irregularities in cortical activity detected with EEGs are analyzed to inform treatment.
