This study examined the effect of BrainsWay® Deep TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) on patients that suffer from stroke-induced impairment of the lower limb motor function. There were two treatment periods, each comprising 11 sessions over 3 weeks, and separated by a 4-week period. The study showed that Deep TMS could generate long-term improvements in the functioning of the lower limb. In this study it was demonstrated that BrainsWay Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation results in significant and long lasting alleviation of symptoms.
