Our investigational TMS device is a self-contained apparatus that delivers a fixed pulse of magnetic energy. The device is small, lightweight, portable and is designed to be used at home.
The patient first charges the device then positions it on the back of the head and presses a button. The device emits a pulse of energy lasting a fraction of a second. The total amount of magnetic energy delivered is minuscule (less than 1/1,000 of that to which a person is exposed during an MRI).. For safety, the instrument locks after each treatment and cannot be used again for 60 minutes.
We intend to pursue FDA 510K clearance for our TMS device sometime in 2007 and we expect to market the product as soon as clearance is received.
Caution: Investigational Use Only
