Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation for Migraine: Spring TMS Study

SpringTMSAre you eager to get your hands on a transcranial magnetic stimulator to treat migraine? The Spring TMS, which received FDA approval last May, won’t be available to patients until the completion of a post-approval study to determine how to use the Spring TMS most effectively. And the study can’t be completed until more participants are recruited. You can try the Spring TMS for free and help bring it closer to availability to others by participating in the study.

The study is being conducted at six locations throughout the United States, but the exact locations are not listed on ClinicalTrials.gov. If you’re able to travel, it might be possible to participate even if you don’t live in one of those locations. If you’re interested in participating, take a look at eNeura SpringTMS Post-Market Observational US Study of Migraine (ESPOUSE) for details and criteria for participation. If you’re still interested, contact Cynthia Harris at (775) 392-2970 or cindy@clinregconsult.com with your questions and to get location details.

    Would love to participate but AZ being the only location, its difficult.

    • Noel, there are six study sites. The page only lists Arizona because that’s where the study is based. I don’t know where the other sites are, but you can contact Cindy Reynolds to find out.

      Take care,

    Is this similiar to Cefaly? I found that SO painful & returned mine. I’m still trying to get in a CGRP study…my last dose of imipramine (the only drug to give me some benefits in 2 years) was increased 2/9, so I can’t participate until I’ve bern at that level for 3mo.

    • Mindy, no it’s quite different. They’re both forms of neuromodulation, but the mechanisms are different. They also feel very different. A “dose” of the TMS is a single pulse. It makes a clunk (like the sound of an MRI) and there’s a bit of pressure applied to your head as it clunks. That’s it. Doctors are advising patients to use as many as four pulses at a time, but it’s less than a second per pulse.

      My fingers are crossed for the CGRP study. I look forward to hearing how it goes.

      Take care,
      Kerrie

  3. I get auras all the time and need to be in a dark room
