Struggling to find an
effective depression treatment?


Learn about a new, no cost research study

Depression affects each person differently, and there is no “one size fits all” treatment plan that works for everyone. Although antidepressant medications are commonly prescribed, they do not work for everyone and can also cause unwanted side effects.

If you’ve tried antidepressant medications but haven’t had lasting success, you may qualify for a new clinical research study. The study is for sTMS: a non-drug, non-invasive, in-office treatment that uses gentle magnetic fields to stimulate areas of the brain involved in mood control and depression. If you join the study, you will receive all study-related care and treatment at no cost.

What is sTMS?

sTMS stands for “synchronized Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation,” and is a non-drug, non-invasive, investigational treatment for depression. sTMS builds upon an existing in-office treatment for depression called TMS. Traditional TMS works by using targeted magnetic fields, similar to what is used during an MRI. While you sit in a chair and remain awake, the TMS system stimulates areas of the brain that are involved in mood control and depression.

Compared with traditional TMS, the sTMS treatment is personalized and synchronized to each patient’s individual brain activity, and uses gentler magnetic fields from a device worn on the head. This gentler stimulation with sTMS may make treatments more comfortable and safe. Like traditional TMS, sTMS treatment is performed through a series of 30-minute treatment sessions, 5 days per week for 6 weeks, and you can resume your regular activities immediately after each treatment.

sTMS is currently being offered at select US centers through a new clinical research study. If you choose to join the study, you will receive all study-related care and treatment at no cost.

Why Participate?

If you’ve tried antidepressant medications but haven’t had lasting success, you may qualify for a new clinical research study. The study is for sTMS, a non-drug, non-invasive, in-office treatment that uses gentle magnetic fields to stimulate areas of the brain involved in mood control and depression. By joining the study you will receive:

  • Assessments of your depression condition by a local doctor
  • Study-related care and treatment sessions at no cost*
  • Compensation for time and travel to attend study visits

* You do not need insurance to participate.
