Therapy Applications

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...

Pain

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...

Tinnitus

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....

Paresis

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...

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...

Migraine

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,...

Stroke

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...

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...

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 posttraumatic stress...
