The E-TMS series transcranial magnetic therapy apparatus uses transranial magnetic
stimulation (Transranial Magnetic Stimulation TMS). This technology is an emerging
technology that is a painless, non-invasive, safe and reliable green treatment method.
Magnetic signals can pass through the skull and stimulate the brain nerves to the brain
nerves without attenuation. The actual application is not limited to the brain, peripheral
nerves and muscles can also be stimulated.
What is Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Therapy (TMS)
TMS is a focal brain stimulation treatment that passes small electromagnetic currents through parts of the brain. Different regions of the brain can be targeted by holding a specially designed coil near the patient’s scalp. Energy is then applied which stimulates nerve cells in that particular brain region. TMS therapy doesn’t use a drug; it directly stimulates relevant areas of the brain. As a result, there are no foreign compounds introduced to the body in TMS, and it does not have the side effects typically associated with drug therapy. TMS therapy usually involves several repetitive sessions; this is referred to as repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS).
TMS has been established since 1985 as an effective alternative to some antidepressants. It has been increasingly used to treat depression, obsessive-compulsive disorders (OCD), some symptoms of psychoses (auditory hallucinations) and PTSD, among other conditions. Research also suggests that targeting the stimulation more precisely within the area of the dorsal prefrontal cortex can improve symptoms of depression. This region of the brain is responsible for “executive functions”, such as selecting appropriate memories and inhibiting inappropriate responses. Other psychiatric symptoms, such as OCD, require specific modification to the stimulation regions.
Benefits of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Therapy
Suitable for the auxiliary treatment of ischemic cerebrovascular disease,alzheimer’s disease,autism, neuropathy (anxiety,depression, neurasthenia, insomnia, brain fatigue and other symptoms), and brain injury diseases.

- Therapeutic effect:
*Small arteries and capillaries dilate, improve local blood circulation, eliminate aseptic inflammation and edema;
*Clear the meridian, promote blood circulation, accelerate the absorption and
dissipation of hematoma and inflammation;
*Reconcile qi and blood, pain relief, anti-inflammatory, promote blood circulation
and remove stasis;
*Regulate human physiological functions, improve microcirculation,
and enhance immunity.
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation now called “magnetic stimulation”, has been widely used. The domestic transcranial magnetic stimulation technology has reached the world advanced level. It has gained more and more in the fields of clinical psychiatry, neurological diseases and rehabilitation.
