The Easy Way out of Depression - without ECT

  • Easier on patients than ECT treatment
  • Effective depression treatment* based on Magnetic Brain Stimulation
  • No anesthesia or hospitalization
  • No reported memory loss*
  • Generally well tolerated - no systemic effects*
   

Historically, Electroconvulsive Therapy – or ECT was used for people experiencing severe, persistent depression. However, ECT has long been affiliated with social stigma, negative cognitive side effects and requires anesthesia and sometimes even hospitalization*. With Brainsway Deep TMS, you can regain serenity, calm and happiness, without having to go through the perils of ECT treatment. With the advantages of short 20-minute sessions, no hospitalization, anesthesia or systemic side effects*, Brainsway TMS therapy is the perfect solution for people who want to overcome depression without taking on the risks of ECT treatment. Brainsway Deep TMS has been clinically proven to help even severe, persistent depression*.  


Widely Tested

Brainsway Deep TMS depression treatment has been proven to be safe*, having been widely tested in over 60 clinical studies in leading institutions worldwide. The FDA has cleared Deep TMS for treating major depressive disorder and it is currently available in the U.S., Europe, and South America. 


Easy on the Patient

Although Brainsway Deep TMS is a powerful depression treatment, it is generally well tolerated by patients. While Electroshock therapy entails various risks and side effects, from long-term memory loss to brain damage*, Brainsway Deep TMS is not associated with these conditions, yet still has the ability to help patients with severe, drug-resistant depression*.


Easy on Your Lifestyle 

Brainsway Deep TMS depression treatment only requires brief daily 20 minute outpatient sessions over 4-6 weeks in the acute phase. In each session, a cushioned helmet is gently placed over the patient's head. The helmet generates magnetic fields, similar to those used in MRI, and stimulates the brain region responsible for depression. After each 20-minute session, you can drive home independently, and resume your normal daily routine. Electroconvulsive therapy, by contrast, involves hospitalization and anesthesia, so the patient needs to stay hospitalized for a varying period of time  before returning home.
