The brain is a very unique organ, and everyone responds differently. This is why we commence all programs with a 2-week Assessment period.
The Assessment period begins with an orientation appointment to welcome you to our clinic. It is followed by a clinical evaluation. From this point we will record an EEG to evaluate brain activity that enables us to set a personalised protocol for the individual.
The MeRTsm treatment is generally 40-minutes in duration. Treatment begins on Day 2 and runs every day thereafter. On Day 10, after 9 treatments, we record another EEG and clinical evaluation. The comparison between baseline and follow-up EEGs, as well as clinical evaluations, are what will determine whether or not the person is a responder.
We have found that in our 2-week Assessment period we are able to determine whether or not the person would be a candidate to continue MeRTsm treatment’s personalised and targeted approach to non-invasive brain stimulation.
