Ectron and Magventure were incredibly pleased with the turnout for the rTMS for Depression Treatment Workshop in London on Wednesday 8th June 2016. The workshop which was held at the The Royal College of Psychiatrists was attended by over thirty psychiatry and healthcare professionals representing both the public and private sectors from across the UK.
Mr. Alex Jones, Director of Ectron made opening remarks and Professor Alexander Sack, Functional Brain Stimulation and Neurocognitive Psychology at the Faculty of Psychology and Neuroscience, Maastricht University, continued with an introduction to Transcranial Magenetic Stimulation for Depression treatment followed by a Q & A session.
Matthias Kienle then presented a practical "hands-on session" with the Magventure MagVita TMS Therapy®
system. The only CE marked TMS system available in the UK.

David Ram is an Austrian entrepreneur, robotics engineer and medical device designer. Born on the 29th of April, 1979 in Kitzbuehel, Austria, he graduated at Graz University of Technology in Robotics Engineering and participated in an exchange study at the University of Delft in Aerospace Engineering.
During his studies David was interested in the interdisciplinary design approach which led him to found a Student Team to participate in the Formula SAE. Motivated by this stimulating experience and inspired by the possibilities of robotics he decided to found Tyromotion
, which is a world leader in rehabilitation robotics.
Within the last 9 years the interdisciplinary R&D at Tyromotion came up with several revolutionary new products to become the cutting edge of what is now called computer and robotic assisted therapy. The company’s products assist patients with motoric deficits in their movement tasks and create a challenging and stimulating therapy experience. To maximize the usability of the devices the company installed a small therapy clinic inside the engineering department to truly connect the patients’ needs and the possibilities of technology.
With numerous national and international prizes awarded the company’s further goal is to create true innovation due to an integrative design approach and the courage to experiment with new concepts.
ROBOT AND COMPUTER-ASSISTED THERAPY FOR UPPER LIMB REHABILITATION
Every day, therapists face the challenge of identifying their patients’ problems and helping them to achieve permanent therapeutic goals that are meaningful to the patients and as quickly as possible; especially in a time limited therapy session that often makes it difficult for therapists to offer their patients a consistently intensive and motivating therapy.
David's seminar will help to develop solutions for all phases of upper limb rehabilitation.
