Theta Burst Stimulation (TBS) is a relatively new form of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), being described in 2005 and initially used for stimulation of the motor cortex in humans. Treatment of depression using TBS is relatively new with studies from 2014 showing TBS to be superior to sham stimulation with an adverse effects profile comparable to sham stimulation. Further, TBS for depression treatment has been established as equally efficacious and safe compared to high frequency rTMS.
Theta Burst Stimulation is a patterned form of rTMS. The standard theta burst pattern consists of three bursts of pulses given at 50Hz and repeated every 200 ms. More patients at the same cost. With its reduced treatment time of just 6 minutes, TBS depression treatment allows for a higher throughput of patients compared to what is possible with the standard rTMS protocol of 37 minutes. Clinics offering TBS treatment can thus treat 5 times more patients with Theta Burst than with conventional rTMS treatment making TBS depression treatments more cost-effective.
MagVenture’s solution includes:
6 minutes Theta Burst protocol
Same efficacy as 10Hz rTMS standard protocol
CE-approved for major depression
To run TBS depression treatment you will need:
MagPro R30 + Theta Burst Option or MagPro X100
Cool D-B80 coil used for both MT determination and treatment
The MagVita range of magnetic stimulators are the only TMS devices available in the UK that are CE approved for clinical use for the treatment of depression.- “treatment of Major Depressive Disorder in adult patients who have failed to achieve satisfactory improvement from two prior antidepressant medications, at or above the minimal effective dose and duration in the current episode"

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

5th Annual Queen Square Upper Limb Neurorehabilitation Course, London 29th-30th June 2017.
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.
