Treating Alzheimer’s patients with TPS: TPS uses shock waves to stimulate brain tissue

TPS_ultrasound_shock waves

The acoustic pulses generated by Transcranial Pulse Stimulation (TPS®) have been used successfully in various medical fields (urology, orthopaedics, cardiology….) for decades under the term »extracorporeal shock wave therapy«.

Shock waves are similar to ultrasound. But there is a major difference:

While ultrasound is essentially a continuous wave with frequent oscillations chiefly in the megahertz range, shock waves have a single pressure pulse lasting about 1 microsecond followed by a tensile wave with a relieving effect that is of lower amplitude and has a duration of about 4 – 5 microseconds.

Owing to the short duration of the TPS® stimulation, tissue heating is avoided.

The acoustic pulses are generated in the therapy handpiece of the NEUROLITH® and are then transmitted to the affected brain regions transcranially. TPS® can stimulate deep cerebral regions, reaching as much as 8 cm into the brain.
