Exploring treatment options for depression? Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) offers innovative approaches that can make a world of difference. Let’s compare two major TMS systems: DeepTMS and traditional TMS.
Traditional TMS with the Figure-Eight Coil:
- In standard TMS systems, the figure-eight coil is the go-to tool. Its distinct shape allows for precise stimulation of the prefrontal cortex—the brain region associated with mood regulation.
- This coil delivers focused magnetic pulses, offering an effective approach to treating depression.
DeepTMS with the H-Coil (by Brainsway):
- Deep TMS takes it a step further with the H-Coil, designed for enhanced efficacy.
- Unlike traditional TMS systems, the H-Coil is integrated into BrainsWay’s cushioned helmet, ensuring steady, consistent contact with the scalp throughout treatment.
- No need for contact sensing software—the design takes care of that.
- Crucially, the H-Coil is securely fastened to the patient’s head, minimizing coil movement during therapy. This stability is vital for achieving reliable clinical outcomes.
Both traditional TMS and DeepTMS offer valuable options for those seeking relief from depression. The choice between them may depend on your specific needs and the recommendation of your healthcare provider.
