Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a method of noninvasive neuromodulation being used to treat depression. Joe Perekupka, VP of Sales Operations at Brainsway discusses their proprietary deep TMS (dTMS) technology which is able to affect areas of the brain previously unreachable by standard TMS. The Brainsway Helmet is a device approved for treatment of the many Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) patients who have failed at least one drug-based regimen. Joe discusses the reality of MDD, the significance of dTMS technology, and the benefit it brings to those who are seeking remission from MDD.
