The aim of the therapy: to improve motoric impairments caused by diseases of the nervous system, vascular lesions in/of the brain, serious brain or cranial injuries, neurodegenerative diseases (for example Parkinson disease)
Short-term advantages: improved tonicity, reduced spasticity, improving musculoskeletal state. As a result, you can achieve improved motoric functions.
Long-term benefits: Developing motoric functions will have long-term benefits in your quality of life.
Numerous scientific research data and reviews point out that TMS treatment can efficiently supplement motoric rehabilitation. (Etoh et al., 2013, Liepert et al., 2007, Miniussi et al., 2008)
TMS, that is Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, is a non-invasive process to stimulate the brain through the scalp. During the procedure a magnetic field generator, a copper coil, is placed on the head of the person receiving the treatment. The coil produces small electric currents in appropriate regions of the brain which has a positive influence on nerve cells. Different illnesses and conditions require stimulation of different regions and different protocols.
Nerve cells in the brain communicate using electric signals. In case of a brain damage this communication is disturbed. We can influence the operation of the nervous system network by using electromagnetic fields induced by the TMS device. The stimulator uses short magnetic impulses which penetrate easily clothes, cranial bones and soft tissues. It affects deeper peripheral nerves, the brain and spinal marrow.
