Researchers, Clinicians, and Academics from Maastricht University are offering a two-day clinical TMS certification workshop to be held in London, UK with a focus on the clinical applications of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS). The course covers the basic physical and physiological principles of transcranial magnetic stimulation, presenting state of the art insights and explanations of the latest scientific literature.


The machinery is explained theoretically as well as practically, from the required hardware components to the administration of a TMS pulse to the neuronal responses in the brain. As TMS can be applied in different ways, using different so-called protocols which define the number, sequence, frequency, intensity, and burst-rate of pulses, participants gain a thorough understanding of the benefits and limitations of this wide range of applications. This discussion covers both classical and state of the art protocols, as well as the evidence for their efficacy, effect sizes, and domains of implementation. At the same time, participants gain hands-on experience with all the relevant tools and techniques.


After learning how to apply TMS theoretically, participants enjoy workshops in our actual TMS labs. Here they are instructed in the everyday operation of the machinery, and both administer and experience different stimulation protocols. They determine individual thresholds of excitability, and learn how to programme TMS machines. This provides them with all the tools to administer clinical TMS therapies such as for depression, anxiety, OCD, tinnitus, pathological pain, addiction, and rehabilitation. Instruction also includes extensive lessons and discussion on safety issues, and qualified teaching staff are present at all times.


The course includes academic sessions, hands-on training, individual feedback sessions on intended protocols or procedures and short presentations by researchers about using TMS for psychiatric disorders and rehabilitation:

Ectron is pleased to announce it will be exhibiting at Therapy Expo, Birmingham NEC on 22nd & 23rd November 2017.
Come and visit us on stand TB63 and have a demonstration on the new PABLO from Tyromotion.

The PABLO System  – Rehabilitation for the whole body

The PABLO Handsensor is a real allrounder: hand-arm-therapy and assessment device in one, the PABLO does not just facilitate the training of all grip forms of the hand; the built-in sensors also track the grip force and range of motion. Thanks to the cross-system tyroS software, the PABLO offers interactive motion training with audiovisual feedback. The results of each training session are automatically integrated into the data base and the therapy report.

With the following wireless extensions, the PABLO becomes even more versatile:

  • The PABLO Motionsensor is a precise joint assessment due to measurement modules that are attached to the body with loop straps of various sizes. Individual positioning of the Motionsensors enables a variety of therapies. So symmetric and asymmetric, bilateral and cooperative applications are possible.
  • The PABLO Multiball supports pronation and supination training as well as the flexion and extension of the wrist. Even at an early stage of rehabilitation, such as flaccid hemiparesis, the Multiball can be used for therapy of the upper extremities. To that end, the PABLO sensor handle is simply inserted into the PABLO Multiball. The hand is attached to the ball by means of a flexible strap system.
  • The PABLO  Multiboard is used to guide and assist repetitive distal and proximal single- and multi-joint exercises. Even severely impaired patients can receive therapy with the Multiboard and learn to avoid compensations in movement from the get-go.

Ectron is pleased to announce the launch of Tyromotions new PABLO which is being demonstrated for the very first at RehabWeek 2017, in London.

The   PABLO®   system is a modern assessment and therapy device for the rehabilitation of patients with impaired motor functions.


The sensitivity of the Motion sensors enables the tracking of underlying movements. Patients who perform a therapeutic game with minimal movements are more motivated and have more fun during the rehabilitation process.


Activities of daily living can be implemented into the therapy sessions at a high rate of repetition with the PABLO® system. This link to daily routines supports the motivation of the patient and enables his/her motor learning. Sit-to-stand, steering a car, reaching for objects or climbing the stairs are just a few examples.


Creativity has no limits! In combination with the TYROS software every therapeutic movement-exercise can be done in a motivating way and additional feedback using the PABLO® Motionsensors. It‘s simple handling enables a very quick therapy setup with almost no chances for compensation movements.

Ectron is proud to partner with Dudley and Walsall Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust in the launch of it's TMS clinical trials.  

The team from Ectron along with Claus Mathiesen from MagVenture spent two days at the Dorothy Pattison Hospital in Walsall covering the benefits of TMS Therapy for the treatment of depression along with sharing the latest TMS research.

In addition, the whole team gained an understanding of what TMS can offer as a treatment, who it may be suitable for, as well as a practical "hands-on sessions" with the MagVita TMS Therapy system.

Dr Russell Davies and the team will now be going forward and the trial is due to start this month.
