The neurocavis DEEP MAGNETIC STIMULATION program is multidisciplinary, and offers “non-invasive” therapies as a first option. It allows us to choose the treatment regimen that best suits the needs of each person.
We frequently observe two simultaneous pathologies in the same patient at our Neuromodulation Unit, which is what we know as Dual Pathology, which forces us to resort to treatments with different helmets and even recommend invasive techniques.
The Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation System (Deep TMS System Brainsway) is the most advanced and versatile, currently available therapy in the field of NEUROMODULATION, as it exceeds surface systems by:
- The design of the coils and their coupling to specific helmets.
- The ability to adjust the helmet to the head morphology, ensuring that energy pulses are systematically received in repetitively selected target circuits, rather than exclusively cortical nodes.
- The measurements and external cranial marks that contribute and allow the correct alignment and immobilization of the head without distortions, increasing the efficiency of the treatment
A specialist will study your clinical reports and evaluate your pathology to establish the indication and convenience of treatment with Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation.
In the USA (FDA), in Europe (EMA- EC), Canada, Japan, etc., they have found that the treatment is highly effective in certain processes, regardless of the results of the previous treatments (psychotherapy, medicine…)
During the first treatment, a specialist will place a helmet that contains a magnetic coil on your head. Next, the intensity of the magnetic pulse based on your individual needs will be calibrated (you will hear a click) and feel a small tapping on the scalp. Afterwards, the machine will be calibrated with the protocol that corresponds to your disorder.
During the application of the treatment, the discomfort is minimal. You will feel consecutive series of slight knocking on your head with rest intervals, which correspond to the discharges of the “wave trains of the electromagnetic energy deposited”. You may feel a small jaw contraction and a slight painless discomfort in a certain place on your head. Wax plugs will be provided to reduce the noise produced by the machine, although some people tolerate it well and do not need them.
More than 60 studies conducted at International Institutions of prestige worldwide have highlighted BrainsWay deep TMS technology.
It has been shown that deep TMS is safe and effective, and without long-term systemic effects (effects derived from medications when they penetrate the bloodstream and circulate throughout the body).
Deep EMT cannot be administered in patients with implanted or non-removable metal devices in or around the head (metal plates, cerebral spinal fluid bypass valves, aneurysm clips or coils), because they can cause serious problems.
Patients with braces and metal fillings can receive the treatment, however, with another type of metal in their mouth they should tell the specialist during the first consultation.
Deep TMS treatment should not be used in patients with controlled implants of physiological signals. This includes pacemakers, implantable defibrillators, vagus nerve stimulators, spinal stimulators or drug infusion pumps. The history of seizures is a contraindication for Deep TMS.
