PowerMAG QPS

Quattro-Pulse stimulation – a new patterned rTMS for inducing LTP/LTD-like plasticity:

A new technology platform enables the combination of ultra-fast QPS (Quattro-Pulse Stimulation) and online TMS-EEG in one device for the first time.

This QPS device can be driven on a standard 1-phase power supply and can apply biphasic Quadri-Pulses, Theta Bursts and rTMS. The selectable burst sequencing allow ultra-high frequency bursts with up to 700Hz.

Features
  • ultra-high speed bursts with up to 666Hz
  • up to 4 pulses in a burst package
  • same pulse lengths in all stimulation modes and with all coils
  • no power roll-of within the bursts
  • biphasic rTMS, Theta Bursts and QPS protocols within one device
  • online-EEG feasible
  • 1-phase standard power supply
  • ISI [ms] 1.5, 5, 50
  • IBI [ms] 200, 1000, 5000
