Future innovations in patient centric TMS technology and its clinical use

While TMS technology has been used for about 30 years primarily in research applications and for the last ten years in the clinical market there is much room for future innovation.
This presentation will suggest opportunities and challenges for broader adoption of TMS in clinical applications and suggest where technology development is already progressing and where further work is required. The presentation will specifically focus on patient needs and how patients might choose between different treatment options.
The presentation will discuss potential future indications as well as how technology can give access to more patients in today’s healthcare economic environment. Finally, future technologies that might eventually replace TMS will be mentioned.
