Setting a new standard for Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation
with collaborative robotics
Axilum Robotics TMS-Cobot is intended to control the positioning, the orientation and the contact of a compatible TMS coil under the supervision of an optical tracking system (no MRI) or a compatible neuronavigation system (MRI)
Why TMS-Cobot ?
There is an increasing awareness of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation current suboptimal implementation when the coil is hold manually during sessions of more than 30 minutes, or attached to a passive holder, forcing the patient to stay perfectly still.
The issue is even more important when a neuronavigation is used for MRI guidance
Moreover, with an increasing number of patients to treat, there is an increasing need to deliver the operator from a demanding and time-consuming task and to reallocate part of his time to more value-added tasks.
Finally, to avoid any head motion during a 30 mn period, even with a head rest, is a real constraint for the patient
Our objective, with TMS-Cobot is to provide an affordable robotic solution, with head motion compensation, to improve the precision of the procedure while delivering the operator from a demanding and repetitive task and reducing the constraints for the patient.
It is important for the user to maximize the chance to deliver the stimulation dose at the right location and TMS-Cobot make this possible.
Collaborative robotics « cobot » technology (safety)
Such technology provides intrinsic safety features through a collision detection mechanism at each joint level, allowing close collaboration with human beings.
