Neuronetics, Inc. announced that the Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices Agency (PMDA) in Japan has approved multiple proprietary innovations, which significantly advance the patient treatment experience with the NeuroStar TMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation) Therapy System for the treatment of major depressive disorder (MDD) in Japan. The features covered in this approval include the NeuroStar 3.7 platform, MT Cap, D-Tect?? MT Accessory, and the Dash treatment protocol.

The Dash treatment protocol reduces the daily TMS treatment time from 38 minutes to under 19 minutes. MT Cap and D-Tect optimize efficiency for providers and patients by shortening the time and simplifying the steps to determine a patient's motor threshold (MT), which is a critical step to establishing the patient's prescription prior to starting treatment. The NeuroStar 3.7 platform continues Neuronetics' strategy to standardize the NeuroStar hardware globally and includes advancements designed to streamline a clinician's workflow, including 60% more computing power and a touchscreen display with a biometric fingerprint reader.
