MeRTMeRT is a non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical, and personalized form of technology that has been developed to improve brain performance. By targeting areas of the brain and inducing changes in neuronal activity, MeRT can help to alleviate symptoms of depression, anxiety, PTSD, and sports injuries.
We conduct an eyes-closed 10 minute quantitative electroencephalogram (q-EEG) and an electrocardiogram (EKG) tests that measure brain wave frequencies, heart rate, and brain-heart coherence.
Our scientific and clinical teams analyze the results to better understand your brain state.
We use a patented approach with your neurophysiological data to develop a customized treatment plan that aims to encourage healthy brain communication.
All MeRT treatment parameters are approved by a licensed neurosurgeon or physician.
While sitting comfortably, a trained technician will position the magnetic coil on your head. This coil will deliver your individualized treatment protocol to the targeted region of the brain.
The technician applies stimulation for 6-8 seconds per minute. A typical appointment is 45 minutes, 30 minutes of which involve stimulation.
We take sequential q-EEG and EKG recordings every 10 treatments to monitor progress and make any necessary modifications to your treatment protocol. This ensures we're always taking the best approach based on your current neurological state.
A typical course of MeRT varies, but on average ranges between 4-6 weeks, Monday through Friday.
Patients with depression have a few markers noted and reported on in EEG studies. Generally, there is an in-balance in brainwave activity between the left and the right hemispheres of the brain: this is known as asymmetry.
MeRT Treatments allow individuals living with PTSD to experience improvement in sleep quality and duration, concentration and focus, mood and motivation, self-confidence and self-esteem, sociability, and clarity of thought. Treatment protocols for PTSD usually take 4-8 weeks.
As an athlete, your physical and mental requirements are off the chart. Impacts to the head can cause athletes to suffer from cognitive impairments, including memory loss, psychological changes including increased impulsivity and aggression, sensitivity to light and negative effects on the field and at home.
