As a new patient at our brain health, you will receive a quantitative electroencephalogram (EEG) to map your brain’s electrical activity. Using this information, an individualized TMS treatment plan is developed for you.
We simultaneously administer an electrocardiogram (EKG) to incorporate 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.
You meet with a physician to determine if you are a candidate for MeRT brain therapy.
2. Analysis & Protocol
Using a patented analytical approach to look at your neurophysiological data, our system develops a customized plan for you that aims to improve neural communication.
3. rTMS Treatments
After arriving at our brain health 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 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.
4. Progress Evaluation
After the initial course of your MeRT treatment plan, subsequent EEG/EKGs are conducted to reassess brain patterns and measure progress. After analysis, modifications are made to your treatment plan based upon changes and your evolving neurological state.
