The popular TMS Course held at Maastricht University is for the first time offered in London tailored at a UK audience. The course is designed for health care professionals working with TMS, or considering working with TMS, clinicians and researchers who seek training in transcranial magnetic stimulation. The course consists of a mix of academic sessions and hands-on sessions.
The Clinical TMS Certification Course is accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME) to provide the following CME activity for medical specialists. The EACCME is an institution of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS), www.uems.net
The Clinical TMS Certification Course is provided by academics and specialists from Maastricht University and was granted 11 European CME credits (ECMEC) by the EACCME.
European Accreditation is granted by the EACCME in order to allow participants who attend the above-mentioned activity to validate their credits in their own country.
Through an agreement between the European Union of Medical Specialists and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EACCME credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Information on the process to convert EACCME credit to AMA credit can be found at www.ama-assn.org/go/internationalcme .
Live educational activities, occurring outside of Canada, recognised by the UEMS-EACCME for ECMEC credits are deemed to be Accredited Group Learning Activities (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
The 'Clinical TMS Certification Course' is designated for a maximum of (or 'for up to') 11 hours of European external CME credits. Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.
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.
MINIMAL MOVEMENTS BECOME VISIBLE
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 are pleased to announce it is sponsoring the 5th Annual Queen Square Upper Limb Neurorehabilitation Course, London 29th-30th June 2017.
5th Annual Queen Square Upper Limb Neurorehabilitation Course: Treating patients with upper limb deficit: Integrating research into practice
The two-day course provides an overview of current research looking at treatment and rehabilitation options for the neurological patient with upper limb deficit. The course aims to assist in the practical real-life translation of scientific evidence into clinical practice and asks - what is it that makes an upper limb therapy effective? Delegates will have the opportunity to trial novel devices and robotic technology.
Course lecturers are from The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, the UCL Institute of Neurology and other renowned institutes in upper limb rehabilitation in neurological patients.This year the team took delivery of the latest in technology from Tyromotion and have full Tyrosolution including MYRO at the hospital to complete the Upper Limb Suite. The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery are seeing fantastic results with their patients and continued benefits are often seen for at least 6 months beyond the programme.
