The Magstim Rapid² repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulator (rTMS) device is a highly effective non-invasive biphasic magnetic stimulator developed as a result of extensive research. It is able to maintain a consistent pulse amplitude/frequency during the delivery of stimulation trains through Single Pulse, Repetitive, Burst, and Session modes of operation.
This equipment consists of a capacitor that generates a great electromagnetic field that is connected to an “8” shaped coil. The coil is used to apply this magnetism to certain coordinates on the skull of the patient.
