What is the difference between TMS and PrTMS®?
PrTMS® uses the same type of treatment as TMS. The TMS device has an electromagnetic coil, which produces magnetic pulses that safely travel through the skull and into a specific area of the brain. However, PrTMS® significantly improves on the procedure by personalizing it to a patient’s unique brainwaves.
During standard TMS, everyone with many types of disorders are exposed to the same treatment protocol. With PrTMS®, the team at MindSet fully personalizes treatment with these three steps:
The team begins by performing an EEG using their PeakLogic ComfortScan™. This device is wireless and obtains an accurate EEG in under five minutes. The information is then used to map brain activity and identify brain arrhythmias — a key component for customizing PrTMS® treatment.
Patients complete a questionnaire to provide information about their symptoms and sleep patterns.
Data evaluation by PeakLogic Software
A patient’s brain map and information from their questionnaire are combined and analyzed using advanced PeakLogic Software. The data that’s produced allows the team at MindSet to determine the precise areas of the brain to target with PrTMS®, as well as the minimal intensity of the magnetic impulses needed to treat brainwave disruptions and restore normal electrical activity.
