This study examined the effect of the BrainsWay® Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation H-coil as an add-on treatment for patients suffering from drug-resistant depression. The study comprised depression patients, and treated them with BrainsWay Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation H1-coil, which was connected to a Magstim rapid 2 stimulator. In the study, the average HDRS and average Hamilton Anxiety Rating Scale score decreased. In this study it was demonstrated that using Deep TMS as an add-on treatment results in significant alleviation of symptoms.
