Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation device market was estimated to be at USD 959.0 million in 2019 and it rose subsequently to USD 1.0 billion in 2020. Amongst these the rTMS (Repetitive Trans Magnetic Stimulator) is the dominant type (38.33%) based on the data published in 2019 [Grandviewresearch.com]. The research in this technology reveals a positive output in severe cases of Depression, Epilepsy, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.
Let’s dig deeper to understand what makes this one of the potential Neuromodulation technologies in 2022.
What is a Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation device?
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation is a non-invasive magnetic treatment used to cure Depression, Neurological disturbances or related symptoms.
FDA approves of the treatment as an alternative for antidepressants and psychotherapy. TMS has also been helpful for Anxiety & Parkinson’s disease.
How does Transcranial Magnetic stimulation work?
During Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation an electromagnetic coil is placed near the head region. The stimulation enhances nerve conduction. In the areas of brain where the activity is slow (during depression & stress), repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation improves activity and brings in more intracranial activation to enhance mood.
Although, the clear mechanism of working of TMS is not known, the results from different studies clearly state that overall impact of magnetic stimulation is positive.
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation over conventional Medication
Often Medication is ineffective in severe cases of depression, stress and anxiety. In such cases, the use of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation can be of great help.
Benefits of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation
- Fast Results
- Minimum side-effects
- Easily accessible
Depression is linked with the functioning of the Pre-Frontal Cortex area of the brain. Inactivity in this region of the brain causes depression, low energy levels and appetite changes.
TMS has been proven to be of great help in stimulating the Pre frontal cortex area of the brain.
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder [OCD]
During the obsessive-compulsive disorder condition, the pre-frontal cortex and striatum area of the brain has higher activity. This activity needs a certain level of moderation. TMS significantly moderates the functionality between the Pre-frontal cortex and striatum area.
