Could These Devices Someday Replace Drugs? Brainsway Deep TMS

Brainsway Deep TMS

Brainsway's Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) technology treats major depressive disorder in patients who didn't get good results from antidepressant drugs. The system uses a helmet containing the company's proprietary H-coil to deliver magnetic stimulation to deep brain tissue, which can help regulate mood. It was cleared by FDA in 2013.
