The Brainsway helmet was recently approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration to help people suffering from depression. An impressive piece of technology, the Brainsway helmet provides Transcranial Magnet Stimulation in the form of electromagnetic coils to achieve lasting results.
Essentially, the Brainsway helmet works by zapping the scalp with electric pulses in order to stimulate certain areas of the brain. Conducted over a period of several weeks, each treatment lasts for about 15 to 30 minutes. Clinical trials of this non-invasive treatment is currently underway with no reported side effects aside from slight buzzing sensation immediately after the sessions.
The Brainsway helmet could also be used to on patients with bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, Parkinson’s diseases and PTSD.
