MAG & More is a German-Based medical device producer in the field of neurological technologies, known in particular for its work in magnetic brain stimulation. The new training academy looks to propel this field of neurostimulation by training technicians in use of magnetic stimulation.
Munich, Germany -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/29/2015 -- Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a medical procedure that is used by therapists to control depression and other neurologic and psychiatric disorders through the use of magnetic fields in order to stimulate the nerve cells of the brain. Electromagnetic coils are placed gently against the scalp as it meets the forehead, so that emitted magnetic pulses can influence the brain regions that control mood. MAG & More has been developing TMS devices for over a decade, specializing entirely in the research, development and manufacturing of cutting-edge technologies and products in the field of neurostimulation. Based on over 20 years of experience, MAG & More now wishes to significantly improve the quality of life for patients suffering from various neurological and psychiatric illnesses by training doctors, researchers, nurses, technical assistants and other health care providers in the use of these devices through their new academy.
"Prestigious institutes around the world have adopted this technology because of its immense potential as an alternative therapy with few side effects," says managing director Christian Hirschbeck. "Now, it is not so much an issue of having people recognize the technology's value, but training people in the appropriate usage of the devices. This is why we have initiated a new training program and want to promote it to healthcare providers and others of complementary medical backgrounds."
