The term »transcranial« means »through the skull«. Pulse stimulation involves acoustic pulses being generated in an application handpiece and directed into the patient’s head. It is here that they produce their effect through targeted stimulation of the relevant cerebral regions. This is a non-invasive procedure, the pulses passing through the skin and skull without damaging them.
Good to know: The acoustic pulses generated by TPS® have been successfully used in medicine since as long ago as 1980 to treat many different conditions – examples being treatment of tendons, ligaments, muscle and bone.
