As a new patient at our brain health and wellness center, you will receive a quantitative electroencephalogram (EEG) test to map your brain’s communication networks. Using this map, or pattern of frequencies, treatment can be individualized to your unique brain pattern.
We simultaneously administer an electrocardiogram (EKG) test to map the electrical activity of your heart and brain-heart coherence, further explaining your brain’s activity.
Our scientific and clinical teams analyze the results to determine your current brain state.
2. Analysis & Protocol
Using a patented analytical approach to look at your neurophysiological data, our MeRT brain treatment center develops a customized plan for you that aims to encourage healthy brain communication.
3. MeRT Brain Therapy
After arriving at our brain health and wellness center, you will sit in a comfortable chair as a trained technician positions an electromagnetic coil on your head. The coil produces a magnetic field to induce mild, painless electrical currents in targeted regions of your brain.
The technician applies 30 trains of electromagnetic transcranial magnetic stimulation delivered for 5 seconds each with 45 seconds of rest period in between trains, to a specific location on the head. A typical appointment is 45 minutes.
This non-invasive, repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) is applied using data from the EEG. Transcranial magnetic stimulation painlessly stimulates the brain over a prescribed treatment period to change and optimize its neural pathways.
4. Progress Evaluation
After the initial course of your MeRT brain treatment, subsequent EEG/EKGs are conducted to reassess brain patterns and measure progress. After analysis, modifications are made to your treatment plan based upon physiological changes and your evolving neurological state.
