Ectron are proud to announce sponsorship of the 4th Annual Queen Square Upper Limb Neurorehabilitation Course - Treating Patients With Upper Limb Deficit: Integrating Research Into Practice on 30th June and 1st July 2016. The course was held at The UCLP Centre for Neurorehabilitation and The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery in London with over one hundred healthcare professionals attending from both the public and private sectors from across the UK.
The two day course provided an overview of current research examining treatment and rehabilitation options for the neurological patient with upper limb deficit. The course assisted in the practical real life translation of scientific evidence into clinical practice. Delegates were given the opportunity to trial the latest technology from Tyromotion including the brand new device MYRO which was launched in June at Neuro Rehab Expo.
MYRO is an interactive therapy surface which can be used in a multitude of ways: the MYRO sensors allow everyday life motor training with real objects on a responsive surface. Myro reacts not only to motion but also to pressure. Myro adapts to the needs of each patient; horizontally and vertically: Myro is height-adjustable and the work-surface can be tilted from 0 to 90 degrees. And even Myro’s responsive area can be scaled to the patient’s ability, which allows training at the personal limit of performance.
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.
Ectron have received incredibly positive feedback from the workshop with 100% of all responses stating they would recommend Ectron and Magventure's rTMS Workshop to a colleague.
"The combination of lectures and practical demonstrations were excellent"
"Presentation by Professor Sack was very interesting"
"Informative and well presented"
