This is the first clinical study using the Brainsway® Deep TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) H-coil for deep brain stimulation. This large scale study examined the effect of H-coil on patients suffering from drug-resistant depression. The study found a significant improvement in HDRS scores in the cases of high-intensity stimulation. The study demonstrated that brain stimulation using the Brainsway Deep TMS H-coil results in significant alleviation of depressive symptoms in these patients.
