…intuitive interaction… 

We delivered software that enables clinicians to deliver the right dose consistently, intuitively navigating, recording and saving treatment protocols for reuse, in accelerated practice.  Significant human factors engineering studies and software verification ensured compliance with international standards and regulation.

What is TMS?

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is an effective, non-invasive, outpatient treatment, for debilitating psychological conditions related to reduced electrical activity in areas of the brain.  Delivering focused magnetic pulses can stimulate nerve cells, increasing brain activity to normal levels, with few known side effects. 

Magstim has been awarded FDA 510K and UKCA approval for Horizon 3.0 with StimGuide+ for the treatment of adults with treatment-resistant major depression disorder, anxiety symptoms, and co-morbid obsessive compulsive disorder.
