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 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 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 PABLOMultiboard 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.
