Brainsway Deep TMS

BrainsWay Deep TMS™ Therapy in Greenwood, IN

BrainsWay Deep TMS™ stands out as the most cutting-edge technology for transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), offering numerous advantages over traditional TMS systems.

With its unmatched innovation, extensive clinical research, and adoption by hundreds of clinics and hospitals worldwide, BrainsWay leads the way in expanding the applications of Deep TMS in the fields of psychiatry, neurology, and addiction medicine.

One of the key differentiators is BrainsWay’s unique coil design, which allows for deeper and broader stimulation compared to the traditional figure-8 TMS coils. This leads to a higher level of neuron activation, reduced chances of targeting errors, and exceptional efficacy rates1. In contrast, traditional TMS coils have undergone minimal changes since their initial use in 1985.

Advantages of Deep TMS over Traditional TMS

Deeper & Broader Stimulation, Activating More Neurons

BrainsWay’s Deep TMS technology, exclusive to their approach, offers a non-invasive method to activate deeper and more extensive brain structures compared to traditional figure-8 coil TMS systems. This advancement with the H-Coil has the potential to address a wider range of neuropsychiatric conditions.

In TMS procedures, the strength of stimulation naturally decreases as it reaches deeper areas of the brain. However, BrainsWay’s unique coil design allows for the maintenance of effective stimulation levels even in these deeper brain regions associated with the conditions we treat1.

In the case of older patients, traditional TMS may not penetrate deep enough to achieve a therapeutic effect, particularly in late-life depression3. BrainsWay’s Deep TMS technology offers a solution by reaching these deeper brain regions and providing potential benefits for a broader range of individuals.

Deep TMS Reduces the Likelihood of Targeting Errors

The H-Coil, with its larger electric field, stimulates a considerably greater number of neurons, minimizing the chances of missing the target brain region. In contrast, traditional TMS runs the risk of losing up to 40% of the required dosage if the positioning is off by just 1mm4. BrainsWay’s technology reduces the likelihood of missing the target, eliminating the need for an expensive and complex MRI-based neuro-navigation system.

Consistent Coil Contact for Effective Dose Delivery

BrainsWay incorporates the H-Coil within a comfortable helmet, specially designed to maintain steady and consistent contact with the patient’s scalp throughout the treatment process. This feature eliminates the need for contact sensing software. In contrast to traditional TMS systems, the H-Coil is securely attached to the patient’s head, minimizing the risk of coil movement during TMS therapy. This stability is crucial to ensure dependable clinical outcomes.

Proven Clinical Superiority Over Traditional TMS

The only independent, head-to-head study of TMS technologies, published in the Journal of Psychiatric Research, determined that Deep TMS plus standard medication was significantly more effective at reducing depression levels among Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) patients compared with Traditional TMS* plus medication or medication alone5.

Deep TMS had no difference in safety or tolerability from Traditional TMS.

What Are The Benefits Of TMS Therapy?

TMS therapy has several benefits, including:

Non-Invasive: TMS therapy is a non-invasive treatment that does not require anesthesia, and patients can resume their daily activities immediately after the procedure.

High Success Rate: Studies have shown that TMS therapy has a high success rate in treating depression, with up to 50-60% of patients experiencing significant improvement in their symptoms.

No Systemic Side Effects: Unlike medications for depression and anxiety, TMS therapy does not have any systemic side effects and is generally well-tolerated.

Customized Treatment: TMS therapy can be customized to fit the patient’s individual needs, and the treatment can be adjusted to target specific areas of the brain.

Long-Lasting Results: The benefits of TMS therapy have been shown to last for an extended period, with many patients experiencing continued improvement in their mental health even after the treatment has ended.

How Successful Is TMS Therapy?

Studies have shown that TMS therapy is a highly effective treatment for depression, with up to 50-60% of patients experiencing significant improvement in their symptoms. In addition, TMS therapy has been found to be effective in treating other mental health conditions such as anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

A study published in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry found that TMS therapy was effective in treating patients with OCD, with up to 30-40% of patients experiencing a reduction in symptoms. Another study published in the Journal of Affective Disorders found that TMS therapy was effective in treating patients with PTSD, with up to 60% of patients experiencing a significant improvement in their symptoms.
