Magstim TMS receives FDA clearance for 3- minute theta burst treatment - Telegraph Hill Partners
The Horizon ® system was designed to offer more versatility in one system, and more treatment options for patients. This clearance allows Magstim to market the 3-minute iTBS protocol. Clinicians have options to deliver treatments with the standard repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS), which takes 37.5 minutes, accelerated TMS (19 minutes) and iTBS, which takes just three minutes per treatment The Horizon® System was designed with the proprietary Energy Recovery System (ERS) that ensures consistency throughout the treatment with no pulse amplitude decay. The ability to offer a variety of treatment options with consistent “dosage” throughout a treatment is a unique distinction in the industry. Customers who already have a Magstim Horizon® Performance System will not need to purchase new equipment or upgrade to their system to deliver the iTBS protocol. The E-z Cool Coil, included in the Horizon® Performance package, has been specifically designed for iTBS, while still providing the option for standard rTMS protocols. Magstim, the pioneer in TMS, developed the first TMS technology over 30 years ago, and continues to be a leader in the field. With efficacy equal to that of standard rTMS, intermittent Theta Burst Stimulation is the newest TMS protocol that maximizes patient throughput. With a range of treatment protocols available in one system, Magstim gives practitioners the flexibility to tailor the best treatments for patients without the need to change equipment. In depressed patients, electrical activity in certain areas of the brain is reduced. The Horizon® Performance uses a focused electromagnetic coil to rapidly pulse a magnetic field to the targeted area of the brain. This induces a small electrical current which stimulates the targeted brain cells into activity, gradually increasing brain activity back to a normal level. Magstim’s Group CEO Lothar Krinke said “I am pleased that we can now market the full capabilities of the Horizon Performance platform. The versatility coupled with …
