All patients will enjoy a calm, beautifully appointed treatment suite with more of a spa feeling than a doctors office.
TREATMENT STEP #1
DATA COLLECTING. Staff begin the process by making sure you are comfortably seated and will fit you with the Quantitive EEG (qEEG) that is used to acquire brain readings and is typically completed within four (4) minutes. You will sit quietly and wait during the test. There is no pain or discomfort and the qEEG cap feels like a hat on your head.
TREATMENT STEP #2
ANALYSIS. The personalized TMS (PrTMS) treatment protocol and dose is derived using the PeakLogic System which combines neurocognitive testing and physician-verified predictive diagnostic results to aid physicians in making more informed decisions on diagnosis and appropriate treatment plans. In a few minutes you will have your analysis and treatment can begin.
TREATMENT STEP #3
TREATMENT. The PrTMS treatment therapy is typically administered 5 days per week and takes a minimum of 36 treatments to achieve peak results. It takes about 25 minutes while you sit in a comfortable reclining position.

Treatment times are consistent. Each treatment takes approximately 30 minutes once it begins. Treatments take a consistent daily commitment for 6-8 weeks depending on treatment response. Treatments that are not producing a measurable response are usually identified after two qEEG tests. In this case, if the treatment is not delivering results, daily treatments will not continue.
Following the initial treatment, the patient may need to come in for a “tune-up” to maintain the optimal result. If needed, tuneups typically are at the 6 month or year mark, for one to two weeks to maintain the peak results. Without tuneups, people on average maintain high-level results. These followup visits will be determined individually. Over time the distance between followup visits gets longer and eventually are not needed.
Over 50,000 samples of brain functioning shows side-affects are minor. The following have been identified:
- A tingling sensation during treatment, however most patients feel nothing
- Mild headache during treatment, subsides shortly after treatment ends
- In almost all cases patients experience better sleep patterns
- If patient has traumatic brain injury (TBI) that has cracked the skull, the treatment rarely works
Health and human performance goals are unique to the individual. Predictive diagnostics and dosimetry are the data and analytics that provide physicians a snapshot of an individuals health and performance across all functional brain areas, aiding clinical decision-making prior to recommending a specific treatment protocol and dose.
The PeakLogic PrTMS therapeutic approach provides a dynamically adjusted protocol and dose which is monitored and continuously validated by the individuals self-reported neuro-function performance tests. The treating physician will determine when peak results are reached and determine an ongoing neuro-performance monitoring schedule.
Each patient’s timing is different. Typically the 6-8 weeks is the basic treatment module and if more is needed it will be discussed at that time. Once the core treatment is complete, on an as needed basis, 6 months to a year after the initial treatment, the patient may schedule a maintenance protocol referred to as a “tuned up” to maintain balanced levels. The goal is to use “tune ups” only as needed.
Without tuneups, people on average maintain high-level results. These followup visits will be determined individually. Over time the distance between followup visits gets longer and eventually are not needed.
