Transcranial Pulse Stimulation (TPS®) with the NEUROLITH® system is performed by a trained practitioner and is done on an outpatient basis. During treatment, the patient sits comfortably in a chair and can move freely at any time. To ensure optimal transmission of the pulses, the therapist applies ultrasound gel to the scalp or hair – it is not necessary to shave the patient’s head. The patient then puts on a pair of special glasses so that the position of the head can be detected.
On a screen, both doctor and patient can see exactly which area of the brain is currently being reached. During the treatment, the therapist moves the NEUROLITH® handpiece gently over the corresponding areas of the scalp and the skull. A therapy session lasts about 30 minutes. Overall, a TPS® treatment series includes an average of 6 sessions, all taking place within 2 weeks.
