Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Cures Stroke

02/11/2019

Nearly one-third of people who experience a stroke can’t walk on their own after getting sick, including 6 months later. Now, US scientists have used transcranial magnetic stimulation to improve their motor function.

 

According to Deccan Chronicle, those who have experienced a stroke often face some negative consequences. Each year, an estimated 700,000 patients have a stroke and about 30% of these are unable to walk independently after 6 months.

 

One study found that walking speed of stroke survivors could be increased by magnetic stimulation to the brain. Experts analyzed data from nine studies on the effects of transcranial magnetic stimulation in stroke patients. The use of this non-invasive method has contributed to significantly increasing the walking speed of the stroke participants. Scientists plan to continue studying the effects of transcranial magnetic stimulation as a method of rehabilitation after a stroke.

The results are published in the American Journal of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation.

 

In October 2019, the Russian manufacturer Neurosoft cooperated and successfully placed a demo transcranial magnetic stimulation equipment TMS model MS / D Advance Buy Prima-Max in Australia Online Therapeutic at Department of Rehabilitation, Bach Mai Hospital – Hanoi with the purpose of display and research activities of the Department. After nearly 1 month of use, doctors have conducted research and implemented a number of treatment regimens for patients who need rehabilitation after stroke, refer to the treatment regimens of advanced countries in the world who have experience using the machine.

Nguyen Xuan C. 72 years old, from Nam Dinh, suffered a stroke on October 6, 2019; arrived emergency room at Bach Mai Hospital in a state of unconsciousness; when he regained consciousness, he was paralyzed on the left side. By October 30, 2019, he was in a relatively good recovery state, was able to walk by himself and was being treated at the Rehabilitation Department. Currently, he is applying the Neurosoft TMS using low frequency 1HZ and stimulation level 100% within 10 days, the first 5 days of once a day treatment for 20 minutes, 5 days later of twice a day. During treatment, he did not show symptoms such as headache, dizziness, muscle aches, neuralgia. In parallel with TMS treatment, he was trained in the Department’s Rehabilitation room.The Rehabilitation Department is continuing to study the TMS and expand the treatment regimen for patients. At the same time, they plan to carry out a scientific research project related to this topic with Bach Mai Hospital.
