About Brainsway Deep TMS
Brainsway* Deep TMS is an innovative, revolutionary technology for the treatment of brain disorders such as OCD. Deep TMS non-invasively stimulates the brain regions responsible for OCD using brief magnetic fields, at an amplitude similar to that used in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems. The device has been cleared by the FDA for treating depression, and has been studied in over 60 clinical trials around the world.
The treatment does not entail systemic side effects, which are effects deriving from medication entering the bloodstream and circulating throughout the body.
Brainsway Deep TMS treatment requires only brief daily sessions over a few weeks, without indefinite or permanent medication intake.
About the Study
The study aims to test the efficacy of Deep TMS for OCD patients who have not sufficiently benefitted from their current treatment. The treatment will take place in leading medical centers around the world and is administered by experts. It entails no surgery, hospitalization or medication, and is based on brief daily sessions of 20 minutes over 5 weeks. During the treatment, the patient is comfortably seated in a chair, and a cushioned helmet placed over the head generates brief magnetic fields.
Immediately after each session, patients can drive home independently and resume their daily routine. Patients can continue their current behavioral or medication treatment during the study. The study has been approved by the FDA.
Study participants should meet the following criteria: Aged 22-68, diagnosed with OCD with partial or no response to treatment, currently taking SSRI medications or currently undergoing cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), have not had any prior TMS treatment
If you have been diagnosed with OCD, you may be eligible for the study
