What is the difference between TMS and PrTMS®?
PrTMS® uses the same device as TMS, which emits magnetic pulses to rebalance brain arrhythmias. However, PrTMS® improves on standard TMS by personalizing each patient’s treatment. The team at MindSet follows these steps to achieve optimal results:
Before starting PrTMS® treatment, the team at MindSet obtains an electroencephalogram (EEG) using their innovative PeakLogic ComfortScan™. Their process is wireless and only takes five minutes, so it’s tolerable for children with autism. After the EEG is complete, the information is transformed into a brain map showing all electrical activity, including the areas of brain arrhythmia or disrupted brainwaves.
Patients complete a questionnaire providing information about their symptoms and specific challenges.
Using PeakLogic Software, the information from the EEG and questionnaire is combined and analyzed. The information from this advanced step gives the team at MindSet the ability to determine the intensity of the magnetic pulse needed for treatment and the precise areas of the brain to target.
Ongoing brainwave evaluation
Throughout PrTMS® treatment, patients will get additional EEGs so the team can see the changes in their brainwaves. This vital step also allows the team at MindSet to fine-tune the PrTMS® therapy to achieve optimal results.
