Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS)

rTMS is a non-invasive and WHO recommended advanced technique to treat various mental health disorders such as depression and anxiety for safe and effective results.
In 2002, the technique was approved for medication resistant depression in Canada for the first time.  Since then, the treatment has been extended to patients suffering from a variety of other psychiatric and neurological disorders.
In the United States, the FDA currently allows doctors to use rTMS off-label. The first clinical rTMS service was established in the United Kingdom in 2003. It is widely used in private hospitals in almost all countries of the world.
It is a non-invasive treatment that stimulates nerve cells in the brain by applying a magnetic field to the scalp. At a predetermined location, an electromagnetic coil is placed against the scalp. The rTMS device then delivers magnetic pulses with MRI-strength to the brain. Patients are awake and alert during rTMS treatment and can even drive themselves home or resume work immediately after treatment. The procedure is typically administered daily for 3-6 weeks, lasting approximately 20 to 30 minutes per session and is performed as an outpatient procedure.

    How does it work?


    Experienced and Trained technicians are allowed to use this non-invasive equipment to stimulate a patient’s brain by using electromagnetic vibrations. A rapidly changing magnetic field created by a hand-held magnetic coil which induces weak electric currents in the brain through electromagnetic induction. It is possible to elicit a therapeutic response in various disease states by stimulating different areas of the brain. This treatment can currently target brain sites, which eliminates the various side effects seen with non-specific treatments.

    Features of rTMS

    rTMS is a series of Transcranial magnetic stimulations for diagnostic, therapeutic and research purposes recommended Neuro-MS/D. Here are few of its features:

    • Frequency upto 100Hz
