Custom rTMS chair

This chair is specially designed and customized by Brainclinics for the treatment of clients with rTMS.
We asked our clients about their comfort or discomfort during treatment and applied their feedback to the ergonomic design of the chair and especially the neck support. During the prototyping phase we tested many different forms before choosing the perfect design.

It comes in many colors and is versatile, easily adjustable and very comfortable for the client. It has a custom adjustable neck support so you can easily fix the head and position the coil at different places on the head.
Arm rests and swivel wheels available as an option.
Please contact us for pricing and shipping.

rTMS equipment: MagStim Rapid2 and Deymed DuoMag

In our practice, we have been carrying out  rTMS in the treatment of depression for a long time now. There are two devices that we work with. Below the two types of devices are described. If you are interested to apply rTMS in your own practice, please contact us for advice, a rTMS course  or a quotation for the following equipment. Both systems are medical CE approved.

What is rTMS?

rTMS stands for Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation or repetitive magnetic brain stimulation. When applying rTMS, a coil is put at a particular location on the head. In this coil a strong magnetic field is generated. This field is then converted into pulses which exit the device through the coil. The pulses can easily penetrate through the skull and reach the brains. These pulses can, because they are strongly magnetic,  stimulate certain sections of the brain and can reinforce communication in certain functional networks. rTMS is for example used in the treatment of depressive symptoms. For more literature about rTMS, click here. You can find more information about rTMS in practice here.

To be able to carry out rTMS, rTMS equipment is necessary. Currently we offer two in our product catalog, the Deymed DuoMag rTMS stimulator and the MagStim Rapid2. We use both in our own practice.

Deymed DuoMag XT rTMS equipment

This equipment has been developed recently and thus based on the latest technical insights.

The DuoMag rTMS equipment can be used for different rTMS treatment protocols and for scientific research. Depending on what you need, there are 3 different models. Below are the specifications of these different models. In general, these are all rTMS devices with a bi-phasic pulse, wherein the number behind XT indicates the maximum frequency in Hz in 50% of the stimulator output. You can download the brochure here.

Neuropsychological tests: IntegNeuro

IntegNeuro ™ is a user friendly, fully computerized neuropsychological test battery. IntegNeuro provides an individual cognitive performance profile. The obtained data are compared with the International Brain Database of Brain Resource Company currently dates contains more than 20,000 people. This neuropsychological test battery is available in Dutch, English, Spanish and Hebrew.

An intuitive touch screen monitor is combined with simple task instructions, which allows these neuropsychological tests to assess people aged 6-96 years. Full automation ensures a reliable and replicable test results and clear reporting. The validity and reliability of these tests is assessed as well and published in an international scientific journal.

IntegNeuro ™ is ideal for obtaining an individual cognitive profile for a wide range of applications (see also the BRC IntegNeuro product brochure for more details, or the sample reports below), including neuropsychological assessment, evaluation of the effectiveness of (pharmacological) treatment, memory clinics (memory clinics), follow-up of geriatric patients, diagnosis of Alzheimer’s dementia, etc.

Cognition reflects ‘real world’ features such as sensory-motor, memory, attention, language and planning capacities. The IBM touchscreen provides a comprehensive analysis because any contact with the screen will be captured and becomes important additional information about the performance of the client in the response times and variability of responses, above the old paper-and-pencil tests. As a result, IntegNeuro is able to the pick up subtle cognitive problems and / or differences by the use of the touchscreen.

In addition, the tests run automaticly and this provides a standardized reporting of test results. In total, the test battery consists of 13 sub-tests which in total takes about 60 minutes.

Motor tapping
The subject is required to tap in a circle with the index finger of each hand, as fast as possible.
Reflects: Hand-eye coordination and fine movement speed (manual dexterity).

Choice reaction-time
One of four circles lights up and the subject has to tap the lit circle as quickly as possible.
Reflects: Reaction time to stimulus, vigliance.
