New Lancet study warns of global dementia cases tripling by 2050

In early January 2022, a study on the development of global dementia prevalence published by the medical journal The Lancet Public Health1 received a lot of attention. The study predicts that the number of cases will triple to 152.8 million by 2050.The World Alzheimer Report 2019 already came to a similar assessment. The most important factors for this explosive development are the ageing of the global population and its further growth.

Treating Alzheimer’s patients with TPS: A revolutionary therapeutic concept

Transcranial Pulse Stimulation (TPS®) with the NEUROLITH® system is a new therapy option for patients with Alzheimer’s disease that allows targeted stimulation of cerebral regions.

Key-facts:

  • TPS® are shock waves which allow highly focal brain stimulation deep in the brain.
  • TPS® allows unprecedented precision for targeting brain areas.

Treating Alzheimer’s patients with TPS: More and more neurologists add TPS to their range of therapies

Transcranial Pulse Stimulation (TPS®) with the NEUROLITH® is increasingly gaining momentum: Since the CE approval for the »treatment of the central nervous system of patients with Alzheimer’s disease« in 2018, more than 50 NEUROLITH® systems have been installed worldwide. In June 2021, three more devices were installed in renowned neurological specialist clinics in Germany, Austria, and Turkey.

Treating Alzheimer’s patients with TPS: BodyTrack – Treatment documentation in real time

One of the highlights of the new NEUROLITH® system is its innovative BodyTrack software – a unique tool for the visualization and control of the TPS® pulses applied and of treatment progress. Real-time tracking of the handpiece position enables automatic visualization of the treated regions. The use of personalized MRI data allows specific characteristics of the patient’s brain to be taken into account.

Treating Alzheimer’s patients with TPS: Alzheimer’s patients report on TPS treatment with NEUROLITH

»Overall, I feel good after the treatment and progress has been made. I notice that I respond well when someone talks to me and find the words to express myself better. In addition, my memory has improved somewhat. When I go shopping, I take the shopping list just to be on the safe side, although I could do without it.

Treating Alzheimer’s patients with TPS: TPS with the NEUROLITH in daily practice

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.

Treating Alzheimer’s patients with TPS: TPS reduces cortical atrophy in Alzheimer’s

The authors of a follow-up study (published in 2021) investigated the possible benefits of TPS® treatment concerning brain morphology, namely the cortical atrophy characteristic of Alzheimer’s disease [1]. They found a significant correlation between neuropsychological improvement and cortical thickness increase in AD-critical brain areas.

Treating Alzheimer’s patients with TPS: User Experience

»Laughing and being happy - for healthy people this is normal. During my TPS® treatments, I notice that this is no longer normal for my patients. Many are sad and seem withdrawn. This is understandable when you can no longer do things the way you used to. I am all the more pleased when relatives call me after the first TPS® treatments with the NEUROLITH® or write to me that their loved ones are now happier again and that they are smiling more often.

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

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:

Treating Alzheimer’s patients with TPS: What is TPS?

In 2018, Transcranial Pulse Stimulation (TPS®) with the NEUROLITH® system was the first, and hitherto only, procedure of its kind to obtain market authorization for the »treatment of the central nervous system of patients with Alzheimer’s disease«. The aim of TPS® is to boost the cognitive abilities of people with Alzheimer’s dementia by stimulating various regions of the brain and to maintain these abilities for as long as possible.
