FAQ

Q ALL 【TMS / TAMAS】 Q1) How should the treatment be performed when there are complex symptoms (Example: depression & anxiety)?
A

A) It is common for 2 symptoms to appear at the same time. In this case, priority is given to the symptom that is thought to be the more serious of the two, and simultaneous undertaking or changing the protocol is advisable while observing the progress. 

Q ALL 【TMS / TAMAS】 Q2) Can TMS treatment be performed when there is an abnormality in the brain (cerebral hemorrhage, brain tumor, etc.)?
A

A) In general, at a medium or large-sized hospital, an abnormality of the brain such as cerebral hemorrhage, or cerebral infarction, and so forth can be judged in advance; however, in a smaller clinic, the patient would be relied on for this information. Therefore, if there is an abnormality of the brain, TMS treatment is generally not recommended. 

Q ALL 【TMS / TAMAS】 Q3) What is an appropriate distance between the transducer and the patient’s head or cranium?
A

A) The strength of the magnetic field decreases as the distance from the transducer is increased. It is recommendable to conduct the treatment by attaching the transducer to the skin, without any gap. 

Q ALL 【TMS / TAMAS】 Q4) Is it correct to say that one should apply high frequency stimulation to the left brain, and low frequency stimulation to the right brain?
A

A) In the initial stages of experimentation with this treatment, left brain stimulation and right brain stimulation were divided. But more recently, this has no longer been the general practice as it is known that almost identical effects are realized through applying stimulation to either side. 

Q ALL 【TMS / TAMAS】 Q5) Are protocols established for each disease?
A

A) Numerous studies have been conducted on TMS treatment. The treatment protocol for depression is fairly well-determined and is close to approval from the FDA (USA); however, protocols for Tic disorder, headache, and the like are still under investigation. Nevertheless, there are protocols that are currently being used at the clinical level. 

Q ALL 【TMS / TAMAS】 Q6) Is there stimulation when conducting the treatment?
A

A) Of course, yes. The patient may feel pain and be startled due to the unfamiliar stimulation from the initial feeling of stimulation and invisible brain stimulation treatment. However, as it is not a significant amount of pain that cannot be endured, it poses no barrier to treatment. In addition, there is a tendency for healthy individuals to have a more sensitive response. 

Q ALL 【PAIN THERAPY - SALUS TALENT】 Q1) Can it be used for the area of the body with artificial joints or plate pins?
A

A) Due to the nature of the magnetic field deep heat will be generated, which may cause deep-seated burns. 

Q ALL 【PAIN THERAPY / SALUS TALENT】 Q2) Is it the same effect to use on clothes?
A

A) One of the characteristics of a magnetic field is that it is permeable with a similar therapeutic effect. Therefore, it can be used on clothes. 

Q ALL 【PAIN THERAPY / SALUS TALENT】 Q3) Are there any precautions when using on clothes?
A

A) If there is a metallic decoration on the clothes, the magnetic field may cause burns on the surface of the skin. (e.g., bra strap rings, underwear metal ornaments, metal-containing fibers). 

Q ALL 【PAIN THERAPY / SALUS TALENT】 Q4) How much power is consumed?
A

A) An amount of power to operate the small heater is generally consumed (Max. 1.5 kW)
