Navigated TMS applications in Stroke
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) in combination with MRI guided neuronavigation can be used to study cerebral, spinal and peripheral pathways in stroke patients. Additionally, stroke patients have successfully received rehabilitation treatments with repetitive TMS for improvements of hand motor function outcome and nonfluent aphasia. We offer TMS machines and neuronavigation (Neural Navigator) separately as well as complete solutions for MRI guided neuronavigation in combination with TMS for research and/or treatment of stroke patients in your clinic. The complete solution is CE certified for clinical use in the EU and FDA cleared for clinical use in the USA.
rTMS treatment in stroke rehabilitation
Stroke patients are often left with impairment of the upper limbs, even after intensive rehabilitation of upper limb function. The impairment of the upper limb is associated with disrupted activity within the brain's motor network. The disrupted activity is characterized … Read More
TMS motor mapping in stroke
Transcranial magnetic stimulation can be used to non-invasively inject a current and generate neuronal activity within the primary motor cortex. The neuronal activation travels through the corticospinal tract and the peripheral nervous system to finally elicit activity in the muscle. … Read More
EM versus optical tracking in neuronavigation
During neuronavigation, the 3D position and angle of the TMS coil, a digitizing stylus and the head of the patient typically must be known at all times. Position tracking can be performed either using optical tracking with large cameras, or … Read More
