What is repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS)
rTMS is a safe effective, non invasive and pain free treatment for patients who do not respond to drug based therapies or who cannot tolerate side effects of medication that often lead to noncompliance. rTMS does not require anesthesia - and is not to be confused with ECT (Electro Convulsive Therapy).
Clinical trials and experience from clinics and hospitals offering rTMS treatment in the UK show excellent results in terms of response rate and even remission. The DuoMAG XT rTMS system delivers magnetic pulses to stimulate nerve cells in the area of the brain controlling the mood.
Repetitive TMS (rTMS) produces longer-lasting effects which persist past the initial period of stimulation. rTMS can increase or decrease the excitability of the corticospinal tract depending on the intensity of stimulation, coil orientation, and frequency.
DuoMAG XT rTMS
Often patients living with major depressive disorder obtain no relief, or inadequate relief from antidepressants. All to often side effects caused by the medication lead to patients stopping taking their medication and noncompliance.
Non-invasive procedure – no anesthesia or sedation required
For use in outpatient settings
Fast and significant improvement - 2 to 6 weeks
Free from common antidepressant drug side effects
Can be used in with typical antidepressants
Patient able to resume daily activities right after treatment
Simple treatment procedure
DuoMAG treatment consists of repeated cycles of rTMS followed by rest periods.
A full DuoMAG Course of Therapy consists of:
An initial assessment which includes the determination of the patient’s individual motor threshold (MT)
5 treatment sessions per week over a period of normally 2-6 weeks
Maintenance treatment if required
Diagnosis and initial session are usually performed by a psychiatrist. The remaining treatment sessions are typically conducted by properly trained personnel under the supervision of a psychiatrist.
Easy to Use
Position patient, set treatment protocol and press start.

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.
