MeRT (rTMS) Treatment

Scientific Studies: We Stand on the Shoulders of Giants

The MeRT (rTMS) approach is an innovative and targeted treatment based on powerful third-party research published in the most prestigious scientific journals.

Below, you will find the peer-reviewed and published research regarding EEGs, rTMS, and MeRT that builds the foundation of our approach to treatment.

Every time you read about "Focused EEG", "Guided EEG", "Personalized EEG", "Customised EEG", as well as studies involving rTMS and magnetic stimulation focusing on Alpha-waves, you are reading about elements in MeRT. MeRT is a customised rTMS therapy.

Research that specifically supports MeRT

Magnetic Resonance Therapy Improves Clinical Phenotype and EEG Alpha Power in Post-traumatic Stress Disorder

Why is this important? MeRT℠ showed statistically significant improvements (p<0.001) in PTSD Checklist-Military (PCL-M) in pre and post treatment scores. This was corroborated by quantitative-EEG findings demonstrating increased global alpha band power (p=0.013) and delta band decrease (p=0.028). These data show trends toward normalization of EEG and concomitant clinical improvements using MeRT℠ stimulation for PTSD.

Magnetic E-Resonant therapy alleviates combat related post-traumatic stress disorder

Why is this important? MeRT℠ may be a promising adjunctive treatment to help veterans suffering from PTSD.

Improved autism behaviors after noninvasive cerebral trans-magnetic stimulation using customized frequency modulation: follow-up mean 24 months

Why is this important? A chart review of ASD patients receiving MeRT℠ was performed on 141 patients. Clinical improvement was noted in the majority of patients - Class I research data is necessary to confirm this data.

MeRT, is the abbreviation for Magnetic Resonance Therapy. It is a highly customised use of repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation or rTMS, based on sophisticated diagnostics.

Like rTMS, the MeRT therapy is a non-invasive, painless, and drug-free option for the treatment of a wide range of neurological conditions.
