This handheld Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) brain zapper you can use at home could bring an end to the misery for the one billion migraines suffers worldwide. This small handheld device zaps the brain with tiny bursts of electricity, and prevents a migraine suffers from getting a future migraine’s.
The portable device using just a single pulse transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) device treats migraine headaches.
The device is cradled at the back of the head, and the push of a button sends out painless pulses of electricity to short-circuit the ‘electrical storm’ in the brain that causes the acute pain, flashing lights and blurred vision of migraines.
In migraines, it aims to calm signals in the cortex, one of the parts of the brain that is over-active during attacks. It is thought it also blocks key pain receptors and helps prevent cells in the cortex from going into overdrive again.
It’s cradled at the back of the head and sends pulses of electricity to ease symptoms.
This device is a step forward in TMS technology.
The principles of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) have been recognized for over 300 years.
The sTMS mini by eNeura provides clinically proven migraine treatment and prevention using single-pulse TMS (sTMS), an ingenious application of the technology used for a variety of therapeutic medical treatments since the 1980s—but never before available in a portable, easy-to-use device that allows patients to treat themselves.
In TMS, current is passed through specially shaped electrical coils to generate magnetic fields of particular strengths and lasting for particular lengths of time.
Through the process of induction, these magnetic fields can pass painlessly through bone and tissue, stimulating complementary electrical activity within the brain that can be visualized by Magnetic Resonance Imaging MRIs.
In it’s early years, TMS was used to study brain function, allowing researchers to explore the ways that nerves conduct electricity, what parts of the brain were involved with speech and emotion, and the impact of stroke on the brain.
The great success of research using TMS has led to an investigation of its use in a wide range of neuromodulation therapies. Because the brain works through the conduction of electrical impulses, it has been theorized that intentional introduction of mild electrical fields to specific parts of the brain may alter—or modulate—brain activity to offer essential health benefits.
TMS is now being studied in promising treatments for brain-based conditions ranging from ringing in the ears to Alzheimer’s disease, from memory disorders to depression.
At the forefront of this groundswell is the treatment of migraine.
Treatment with sTMS has previously been available only in neurologists’ offices. However, eNeura has made innovations to allow the miniaturization of TMS technology and to simplify its use, so there is no need for a specially trained technician.
The patented sTMS mini by eNeura is proven safe and effective in preventing and treating migraine and may reduce the need for migraine medications. This small, portable device allows patients to harness the effectiveness of sTMS at home and wherever they go.
A migraine is an extraordinarily prevalent neurological disease, affecting 39 million men, women, and children in the U.S. and 1 billion worldwide.
Everyone either knows someone who suffers from a migraine or struggles with a migraine themselves.
A migraine is the 3rd most prevalent illness in the world.
Nearly 1 in 4 U.S. households includes someone with a migraine.
Amazingly, 12% of the population — including children — suffers from a migraine.
18% of American women, 6% of men, and 10% of children experience migraines.
Migraine is most common between the ages of 25 and 55.
Migraine tends to run in families. About 90% of migraine sufferers have a family history of migraine.
That just a push of a button migraine suffers get relief.
Using the device allows migraine suffers to live without the side effects or drug interactions associated with migraine medications.
So at just a push of a button, you’re on the path to relief in less than a minute.
Get back what a migraine’s been taking away from you — missing out on time with friends and family? Having trouble focusing at work? You are feeling bleary from medication side effects…even when you don’t have a headache?
