Diagnostic TMS and EMG applications
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a non-invasive brain stimulation technique which uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells. A motor evoked potential (MEP) can be registered if an electromyography (EMG) signal is recorded from a muscle at the moment of stimulation. Such a stimulation-recording setup allows the study of cerebral, spinal, and peripheral pathways and damage or diseases thereof. These type of tests have become important tools for neurologists, neuroscientists, and (clinical) neurophysiologists over the last 3 decades when diagnosing patients with demyelinating diseases of the nervous system such as multiple sclerosis, or patients with tumor or vascular lesions of the brain. We offer complete solutions for such diagnostic combinations of TMS and EMG, including 2, 3, 4, 5, or 8 channel EMG, monophasic and biphasic stimulators, paired and triple pulse designs to study conductivity, software with tailored reports of clinical results, and many more.
