This is BrainsWay’s global website. The global website is not intended for persons in the United States and includes information on clinical indications that were not cleared by the FDA, which are subject to further US regulatory review for safety and efficacy. BrainsWay is cleared by the FDA only for patients with MDD who failed to respond to one or more anti-depressants in the current episode, and for patients with OCD as an adjunct treatment.
BrainsWay’s Deep TMS technology includes a double-blind system that enables researchers to easily conduct randomized studies. The system includes smart cards that are randomized between patients. At the beginning of each treatment, the patient’s individual smart card is inserted into the card reader, automatically activating either the real or the sham coil, which are both located in the patient’s head set. Both coils produce similar scalp sensations and acoustic artifact, so that neither the patient nor the caregiver knows whether the treatment taking place is real or sham.
BrainsWay’s Deep TMS technology can be used to stimulate a wide variety of brain regions and networks. It can easily be applied to diverse clinical applications by designing coils that target different locations, depths, directionalities & morphologies relevant to target neuronal structures, and usage of different protocols during treatment.
The following is a list of brain regions that have been stimulated in various studies using BrainsWay’s technology: lateral and medial prefrontal cortex (PFC), including ventral PFC, Orbitofrontal cortex, right & left Insular cortex and entorhinal cortex, anterior cingulate cortex, posterior cingulate cortex, lateral and medial motor cortex, including deeper leg motor cortex, premotor cortex, supplementary motor area, precuneus, right and left temporal cortex structures, including fusiform face area (FFA) & superior temporal sulcus (STS), parietal cortex regions, occipital cortex regions, auditory cortex, visual cortex and cerebellum.
BrainsWay’s treatment has CE mark* for the following brain disorders:
